Chapter One

Lesson One

Learning from the Master

Luke 11:1-13

Make no mistake about it! The prayer life of Jesus was so dynamic, so compelling, so radical, so infectious that the people who were closest to Him begged, "Lord, teach us to pray." They had seen all kinds of prayer, but they had never seen anything like this before. His prayer life was so categorically superior to their own that they did not want to miss the opportunity to enlist themselves in Prayer 101 with Jesus as the instructor.

Living 600 generations later has removed us from the up-close-and-personal dynamic of being taught by Jesus. It would be easy to argue, "Well sure, if I had been traveling with Jesus for three years in Palestine, I would have felt comfortable asking Him to make me a praying person too. But this is different. He doesn't live in this high-tech computer age. It's not so simple anymore." Wrong. We are at no disadvantage.

Jesus is still teaching His followers to pray. He hasn't lost His touch.

Read Luke 11:1.

The words "Lord, teach us to pray" have been called the most important prayer we will ever utter, because when you learn to pray, you can receive everything God wants you to have. This verse records the historic moment when thesefive words were first spoken.

p 1. What prompted Jesus' followers to ask, "Lord, teach us to pray"?

A 2. Specifically, what might they have observed?

p 3. What do we learn here about John the Baptizer?

D 4. How would you have felt if you were there with these first century followers of Christ?

P 5. Why do you think the words "Lord, teach us to pray" are referred to as "the most important prayer we will ever pray"?

Read Luke 11:2-10.

A 6. Was Jesus ready and eager to give an answer, or tentative and reluctant to respond to their request? What does this tell us about Jesus?

A 7. In future lessons, we will look more closely at the Lord's Prayer as a pattern (vs. 2-4). But at first glance, what strikes you about this prayer?

p 8. Following the Lord's Prayer, Jesus tells an interesting story about a guest at midnight (vs. 5-10). What is the point or prayer principle of this story?

P 9. What contemporary story could you use or create to illustrate the same principle? Write just a few details below.

p 10. What is the difference between asking, seeking, and knocking? Why are the three strung together in this succession?

P 11. Of these three forms of prayer-asking, seeking, knocking-which do you think is the most common? Least common? Why?

Read Luke 11:11-13.

p 12. Which common, everyday household items does Jesus refer to?

A 13. In what way is our relationship to God the Father similar to the parent-child relationship? Not similar?

D 14. Is this word picture of a parent-child love relationship one with which you can identify? Why or why not?

A 15. What is the significance of asking for the Holy Spirit? Is there a connection between the original request (Lord, teach us to pray) and the Lord's final answer (ask for the Holy Spirit)?

D 16. On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being high), how would you rank your current private prayer life? Your corporate prayer life?

D 17. Specifically, what would you like to see Jesus do for you during this course?

D 18. Is there anything that might keep Him from fulfilling this request?

D 19. What truth is God teaching you in this lesson? Write it down.

D 20. What are you going to do with this truth?

Assignment for This Week (for personal or group study)

Each day, pray "Lord, teach us to pray." Read John 15:1-8. Sign the "Lord, Teach us to Pray" Commitment below. Read Luke chapters 1-12, marking "P" in the margin every time you find people praying or talking about prayer and "HS" every time you read about the Holy Spirit. Swap names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses with your group members and record them in the back of your study guide.

Group Prayer Activity

Call on someone to pray as you begin class. (Ask the person ahead of time to make sure it's okay.)

Encourage everyone to say in unison, "Lord, teach us to pray."

"Lord, Teach Us to Pray" Commitment

I desire a consistent, genuine prayer life and I will ask, "Lord, teach us to pray."

I purpose to complete every lesson.

I will attempt to use the Lord's Prayer pattern each of these 12 weeks.

I will memorize John 15:1-8.

I will consider recruiting a prayer partner with whom I can consistently share needs and regularly pray.
