Making disciples through "events that form and transform"

We are providing these notes from the Committee on Uniform Series that prepares associated Sunday School lesson outlines long in advance of their usage.  Included in this Guide are thoughts that are reflected in the Lesson Development Guide for writers of Sunday school lessons and the recommended commentary of the Department of Christian Education, The New International Lesson Annual published by Abingdon Press Nashville, Tennessee.

A Model of Prayer
Luke 11:1-13

 

Unifying Principle (Focus)

People build intimate, trust-filled relationships by having open communication with one another.  How do people maintain open communication?  Jesus teaches that nurturing a relationship with God requires persistent prayer.


Goals for the Learners

To understand the Lord’s Prayer as a model for various kinds of prayers.


To accept the need for constant prayer.

To develop a more disciplined prayer life as a means of developing a growing relationship with God.

 

Lesson Challenges for the Week

 

Locate and read a resource on Prayer.  Use whatever ideas you find helpful to build a more disciplined prayer life.


Scan entries for “pray,” “prayer,” and related words in a Bible concordance.  Check out some of the many entries you will find.  What do you learn from these verses about how to pray and why to pray?

Begin or add in a prayer journal by listing the names of people or situations for which you are praying.  Date each entry to show when you have offered a prayer for a particular person or situation.  Also enter the date on which the prayer appears to be answered and lift a prayer of thanks to God for hearing and responding.
