This week's lesson: THE LORD'S PRAYER

Bible: Matthew 6:9-13

Bottom line: The prayer that never fails is ‘Thy will be done’.

  • What do you think makes the perfect prayer?
  • What kinds of things do you think could be in a prayer like this?

Well, it might be surprising to know that Jesus has saved us the work of trying to figure it out by creating a prayer like this – The Lord’s Prayer.


The disciples basically asked Jesus to share a perfect prayer and he gave them this example.


Our Father, Who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy Name. 

Thy Kingdom come. 

Thy Will be done, 

on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our trespasses, 

as we forgive those who trespass against us. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil.


But what does it mean? The New International Reader's Version says


Our Father in heaven,

may your name be honored.

May your kingdom come.

May what you want to happen be done

on earth as it is done in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins,

just as we also have forgiven those who sin against us.

Keep us from sinning when we are tempted.

Save us from the evil one.


Let’s take a look at part of this prayer – ‘Thy will be done’.

Think about it: If you pray and seek to do what God would do, or in other words ‘do His will’ – THAT is a prayer that never fails.

When we pray to do things the way God would have us do them, our prayers are answered, no matter what.

So, everyday ask yourself this question: What does God want me to do in each situation that I face? The more you ask that question, and ask God to help you answer the question, the closer you get to his will.

Think of a tough situation you are facing. Maybe a decision you need to make? Family or friend issues. A worry. Now, ask God to just do his will in the situation.


Think of how simple that is: God what do you want me to do here? And for God to just help you take each step as He would.
