"Once the Lord's Prayer gets hold of you, my experience is that it never lets go," says Dr. James Nestingen, the host in this 9 part video series that explores the Lord's Prayer. "It encompasses those points at which faith and life intersect and where you find yourself in life's crucible," he adds. "It is a table of contents to the Christian faith." Dr. Nestingen is Professor of Church History at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, noted speaker and author. He has written a Bible study for Lutheran Woman Today on the topic of the Lord's Prayer. His exploration of the Lord's Prayer in When You Pray... is navigated with a pastor's heart, as rich in story and humor as it is in scholarly insight. When You Pray... The Lord's Prayer with Dr. James Nestingen takes us through nine 25-minute sessions with an extensive study guide.
 
The nine sessions are as follows:

  • The basis of prayer- we begin to ask why it is we dare to pray.
  • Our Father who art in heaven- who is this God that we pray to, and what can we expect from this God?
  • Hallowed be Thy name- we consider what it means to call God holy.
  • Thy kingdom come- we ask God to bring us to faith, recognizing it as a gift.
  • Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven- we explore in greater depth what it means when we pray for God to take control of our lives.
  • Give us this day our daily bread- we are invited to remember God's great generosity.
  • And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who tresspass against us- we consider how God clears out our past, and opens us up to a new future.
  • And lead us not into temptation- we ask God to protect and keep us, so that we might live in the hope of that resurrection.
  • But deliver us from evil- we ask God to take care of us now, and until the very end.

 
Nine 25-minute videos with an extensive study guide that includes background information, discussion questions and prayers.
