Using the Lord's Prayer Practically

“This, then, is how you should pray: “ ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. ’ (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭9-13‬ NIV)

Here's a basic way to apply this passage practically.

        L-Learn/Listen to the prayer
        O-Obey/pray/live the prayer
        L-Lead others to do the same thing

This is the essence of disciple-making. It's what we should be doing with every passage of scripture with grace and truth. Lord, find us faithful and fruitful.
