The Lord’s Prayer Liturgy, Part 1: (Luke 11:2-4, Psalm 34:13)

Jesus tells us how to pray. He says,

“When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.’”

I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together

Blessed Be Your Name by Matt and Beth Redman

Blessed Be Your Name
in the land that is plentiful,
where Your streams of abundance flow,
blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
when I’m found in the desert place,
though I walk through the wilderness,
blessed Be Your name.

The Lord’s Prayer Liturgy, Part 2: (Luke 11:2-4, John 6:33, Matthew 7:7-11)

“’Give us each day our daily bread.’”

“For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

The Lord’s Prayer Liturgy, Part 3: (Luke 11:2-4, Luke 5:12-13, 18-25, Psalm 86:4-7)

“’Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.”’
While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.

One day Jesus was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting there. Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.

When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”

The Pharisees and the teachers of the law began thinking to themselves, “Who is this fellow who speaks blasphemy? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

Jesus knew what they were thinking and asked, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God.

Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. You are kind and forgiving, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. In the day of trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.

It’s You by Dave Wilton and Asher Seevinck

Son of man reach out your hand and touch my weary heart.
Son of man reach out your hand and heal my failing heart.
It’s you that I need.
It’s you that I need.

The Lord’s Prayer Liturgy, Part 4: (Luke 11:2-4, 1 Peter 5:8-9, Hebrews 12:1-2)

“And lead us not into temptation.’”

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.

I Want to Run by The Crossing Music featuring Rahlo

Let us throw off everything that hinders
and the sin that so easily entangles,
and let us run with perseverance
the race marked out for us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus.

Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken – Words: Henry Lyte (1824) Music: Attr. Mozart, Alt. Bill Moore

Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.
