This is our fourth and final week of Teach Us to Pray, our mini-series on the Lord’s Prayer. Here’s how you can prepare for service:

1. Read through our text, Matthew 6:9–13.

Last week, we focused on the first three petitions of the prayer—the “Your” petitions: Hallowed be Your name, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done… This week, we’ll end our time with the three “us” petitions: Give us our daily bread, forgive us, lead us not into temptation.

2. Read, pray, and sing through the service:

CALL TO WORSHIP: Psalm 36:7–9

Come Thou Fount (Robert Robinson, John Wyeth arr. Page CXVI)
New (Bryan Brown, Tofer Brown, Kate York)

CONFESSION OF SIN:

Lord, You come to us, but we do not recognize You;
You call, but we do not follow; You command, but we do not obey,
You bless us, but we do not thank You.
Please forgive and help us.
Lord, You accept us, but we do not accept others;
You forgive us, but we do not forgive those who wrong us;
You love us, but we do not love our neighbors.
Please forgive and help us.
Lord, You showed us how to carry out Your mission,
but we still insist on our own;
You identified Yourself with outcasts, the needy, and the poor,
but we do not bother to find out what is happening to them;
You suffered and died for the sake of all,
but we do not give up our comfortable lives.
Please forgive and help us,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
