Resources for the Lord's Prayer

From February 2 to March 29, 2020, our church will be focusing on the Lord's Prayer. We desire that God disrupt our rote recitations of the prayer. In place of that "vain repetition," we want our hearts to be shaped by this prayer. We want it to seep into our bones so that our wills begin to align with God's will. That said, we are using this webpage (a) to point to our various initiatives and (b) to amass resources related to the Lord's Prayer.



Initiatives:   Resources:


Art Project  We are soliciting art (visual or otherwise) associated with the Lord's Prayer. Stephanie describes the  project in this video.


Paraphrase Project  — We are asking people to write their own paraphrase of the Lord's Prayer and then submit them to Pastor Drew. Some will be shared during worship services and as we do, we post the videos here:  e.g., Jim Gritter & Keira Wesley on Feb. 9.


Daily Prayer Prompt — We’re trying something new with this series: prayer prompts sent to your phone or email. Sign up and you will receive (almost) daily reminders and resources related to the Lord’s Prayer. Either text “@lp-dpp”to 81010 or go sign up online


Foreign Language Project  — We have asked all our missionaries to submit videos of them saying the Lord's Prayer in a local dialect. These videos are slowly rolling in: 

One other feature — On Feb. 23, we played a video that allowed members of Reflectors (Faith Church--Dyer, IN) to lead us in the Lord's Prayer. Watch again here


 
Music
