Sermon Notes: Praying to our Father (Luke 11: 1-13)

How to pray to our Father (1-4)
- ‘Lord, teach us to pray’ - learning how Jesus prayed
- Praying to the Father for his priorities:
- May your name be hallowed / honoured
- May your kingdom come
- Praying to the Father for our needs:
- Need for daily bread - food
- Need for forgiveness of sins (as we also forgive)
- Need for deliverance from time of trial
Why we pray to our Father (5-13)
- Parable of persistence - urgent need met because of persistence
- Promise: ask, search, knock - God is ready and willing to answer
- Even bad dads give good gifts
- Heavenly Father gives ... the Holy Spirit!

Prayer is asking our heavenly Father for the things we need.
