Luke 11 -- Terrible As An Army With Banners

By ZNP · Jul 28, 2020 · ·
  1. 11 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord,teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” 2 He said to them, “When you pray, say: “‘Father, hallowed be your name, Michael Jordan reminded people again and again that his hope when he first came to Chicago was that the basketball team in Chicago would be as respected as Boston, LA and Philadelphia. This is where our prayers originate, from a hope we have. He saw those other teams as the legacy, the fathers of faith, and he wanted his team to honored just as they were. This hope became a prayer that he lived out. Elizabeth’s prayer was concerning the “mother of my Lord”. She prayed that Mary would be blessed and that the “fruit of her womb” would be blessed. “Blessed is she that believed; for there shall be a fulfilment of the things which have been spoken to her from the Lord.” Mary prayed that the Lord would be magnified in her. She had a vision that although she was in a low estate, from henceforth all generations shall call her blessed. “Those who honor me I will honor” (1Sam 2:30). She proclaimed that He was doing mighty things. She proclaimed His mercy. He scattered the proud and exalted them of low degree. This is what it means to hallow the Lord’s name and this is the prayer that she lived.

    your kingdom come. Zacharias was focused on God who had wrought redemption and salvation. He praised God for His faithfulness in remembering the covenant with Israel. He prophesied that John would have a mission to go before the Lord to make ready His way, to give knowledge of salvation, and to guide our feet in the way of peace. 3 Give us each day our daily bread. Scottie Pippen was ranked 2nd on the Bulls in scoring, 2nd in rebounding, 2nd in minutes played, 1st in assists, 1st in steals, and 6th in salary. He was 122nd in the league in salary. He was a hall of fame player, he played on the Dream team, one of the 11 best players in the league at the time, and he was undeniably underpaid. We aren’t praying to “get what is ours” we are praying for our daily bread. The reason Scottie was underpaid was simple, he had two people in his family in wheelchairs, and he had a very large family (11 brothers and sisters) depending on him. Therefore he signed a long contract (8 years) for $18 million to make sure everyone was taken care of. He was advised that this was a bad contract, but he felt in his situation security was the most important. Let’s keep our prayers simple, just to be given our daily bread. Everyone in his family said clearly that they had been given their daily bread. There are many, many athletes who go broke after having huge contracts. Scottie didn’t go broke because he knew from day one that this money had to take care of everyone.
