OPENING PRAYER RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER’S MANUAL 8TH NOVEMBER 2020
Father, please open my understanding on how to pattern my prayers before you
MEMORY VERSE: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God”. — Philippians 4:6
BIBLE PASSAGE: MATTHEW 6:9-13
“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as [it is] in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. RCCG SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER’S MANUAL 8TH NOVEMBER 2020
Many people misunderstand the Lord’s prayer to be a prayer we are supposed to recite word for word. It has been memorised by countless people throughout history and is often recited corporately. Rather, the Lord’s prayer should be understood as an example and as a model, of how to pray. Not that we are tied up to the use of this only, or of this always; yet, without doubt, it gives us the “ingredients” that should go into prayer.

1. PETITIONS IN RELATION TO GOD AND HIS HONOUR
2. PETITIONS IN RELATION TO HUMAN CONCERNS
PETITIONS IN RELATION TO GOD AND HIS HONOUR
A. Teacher should do a verse to verse analysis of the passage on the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6:9-10
“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.” (Matt. 6:9).
Jesus begins His exemplary prayer by acknowledging God the Father.
God is our Father, meaning He cares for us.
God resides in Heaven, which implies He is above us (Isa. 55:8-9) and He is the one to whom our prayers should be addressed .
We hallow His name, meaning we declare that He is holy and praise Him for who He is.
This opening line, therefore recognises that God is both our Father and our King. He loves us, and He is far greater than us (Rev. 1:6).
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Matt. 6:10).
This is a reminder to us that:
We are to pray for God’s plan in our lives and the world, not our own plan.
We are to pray for God’s will to be done, not our desires.
We are to pray for His purposes. God cares for us and is greater than us. (Jeremiah 29:11)
We are to submit our will to His (Matt. 26:39, 42; Acts 21:14).
We are to trust that His way is better and pray that His will be accomplished on earth. (Psalm 37:4-5)
CLASS ACTIVITY 1
Students should mention some of the attributes of God that can be used in prayer to acknowledge His greatness.

PETITIONS IN RELATION TO HUMAN CONCERNS
A. Teacher should do a verse to verse analysis of the passage on the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6:11-13
“Give us this day our daily bread.” (Matt. 6:11).
We do not only desire God’s will on a grand scale, but also on the smaller scale of our lives. (Prov. 30:8).
We look to Him for our daily needs; -spiritual, practical, relational, emotional, and physical. (Matt. 6:33)
“And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.” (Matt. 6:12).
Our biggest need is to be forgiven. Without God’s forgiveness we are dead in sin. (Eph. 2:1).
With His forgiveness, we are made alive in Christ. (Col. 2:13).
Because we are forgiven, we are called to forgive (Matt. 18:28-35, Mark 11:25).
Forgiveness restores our fellowship with God and others.
With forgiveness, we can obey the command to love God and love others. (Matt. 22:37-40).
“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil” (Matt. 6:13a)
This final request demonstrates that:
Our heart is eager to please God.
God will not lead us into temptation (Jas 1:13).
He is not the author of evil.
This prayer is an agreement with God that we do not want to sin against Him (Luke 22:40).
It is a plea for help in achieving victory over sin and a request for protection from the attacks of the devil (Psalm 141:4, 9).
We pray to be aware of the evil that tempts us and to readily see the escape that He has provided us (1Cor. 10:13).
Temptation in this verse may also refer to trails of our faith. (1Peter 1:7; 4:12).
We can conclude our prayers with a remainder of God’s sovereign control, His great power, and that our life is for His glory. ” …..For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.” (Matt. 6:13b).
CLASS ACTIVITY 2
Class should highlight other key issues that believers should prayer for.
To pray in line with the pattern of Jesus, the major ingredient must be included.
The Lord’s Prayer is a model provided by Jesus for how to pray.
Lord, give me the grace to pray in an acceptable manner
Student should memorise and recall the Lord’s Prayer. (No marks).
