Hello Sunday school teachers, preachers, and students! Welcome to SundaySchoolPreacher.com. In this week’s lesson Jesus provides his disciples with a kingdom seeking prayer. We often call this prayer of Jesus the Lord’s Prayer. In this portion of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is showing his disciples a more excellent way to pray. He is correcting them so they won’t pray like hypocrites. He is correcting them so they won’t pray to be seen like others or to draw attention to themselves. When Jesus says "pray then in this way" He is teaching his disciples how to pray. That is to say, this is a better way to pray. He has already told them don't pray like the hypocrites in the synagogue and in the streets. He’s already told them don’t pray to bring attention to yourself. And it's not as if the disciples weren't already praying or didn't know how to pray. This prayer Jesus is teaching his disciples continues his instruction on the new rules and new commands that will govern the citizens of the new kingdom of heaven. It is perhaps the most well known prayer of all time and many of us learned it at the feet of our mothers.
