Though not a strict model for prayer in all situations, the Lord’s Prayer is a rich resource for learning how to pray—a summary outline given by Jesus as a general guide. In this episode of White Horse Inn, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Adriel Sanchez work through the remaining petitions of the Lord’s Prayer and what it means to cast our cares upon the Lord, believing that he cares for us.
This episode closes with David’s prayer from 1 Chronicles 29:10–13:
“Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.”
