Whatever It Takes: Finding Fresh Power In A Familiar Prayer Matthew 6:6-15 Have you ever wondered if people can really change? Have you ever wondered if you could truly change? Often, we think to ourselves that the possibility of deep change in our lives is increasingly unlikely as time goes on. We struggle with the same old sins. We fall into the same bad habits. We get stuck in the same mindless amusements. Who really changes and for how long? One of the great encouragements of the Bible is that there is power for deep and lasting change through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. One of the greatest and most familiar passages in the Bible, The Lord’s Prayer, is actually designed to call God’s people to seek God’s face for deep authentic personal change. Over the next several weeks, we are going to look at a familiar passage of Scripture in what is hopefully a completely fresh and unfamiliar way. Whatever It Takes is discovering how Jesus’ teaching on prayer is a clear call to seek a radically new set of passions and priorities in our lives – Kingdom priorities. Pray that God will help all of us pray an old prayer in a radically new way. Are you willing to pray “Whatever It Takes”?
