Jesus demonstrates how to pray by saying the Lord’s Prayer.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen answers the question, “What is the point of prayer?” In Matthew 6, Jesus says God knows what we need before we ask him, but that doesn’t mean he knows what we want. Jesus demonstrates how to pray by saying the Lord’s Prayer. In that prayer, what we need to thrive is stated – daily bread, forgiveness of sins, resistance of evil, and deliverance from tribulations.
