We want us to turn to where Jesus introduces what many refer to as the Lord’s Prayer. Jesus sets the backdrop to the relational nature and intimacy of prayer and he gives us a blueprint, if you will, of the core of prayer. This is taught in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew ch. 6. Jesus radically changes the paradigm of how we approach prayer and invites us into making prayer personal and a powerful way to engage with our Heavenly Father.
