Teach Us To Pray by Ranjit David, led by David Gravitt. No Cost. W206

If you’ve grown up in a Christian home or have had some exposure to Christianity, you are probably familiar with “The Lord’s Prayer.” Perhaps, you can recite it verbatim. Or perhaps you’ve recited it so many times that the words fail to make much sense to you anymore. In this eight-part series, pastor Ranjit David, explains how the Lord’s Prayer is much more than a model prayer. Instead, it is a declaration that establishes God’s reign not just in Heaven, but on Earth as well when we mean what we pray. Eventually, the Lord’s prayer is not ritualistic dogma or a magical mantra but a deeply conversational, one-on-one appointment with our Father.
