Lord, Teach Us To Pray (podcast episode 30)

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus spends a great amount of time compared to other sections talking about the topic of prayer.  He first teaches his disciples how not to pray, followed by a model prayer that we can use as an example even today, 2000 years later.  Please grab a Bible and join me for this study from Matthew 6:5-15.
