Kingdom People Pray

February 4 | DNA Guide

Be Real Together:

Take a few minutes to catch up, tell stories, and laugh together. Trust and friendship take time to build. If you’re launching a new DNA, one person should tell their story — what do we need to know about you? Next week, have another person in your DNA share their story.

Read Together:  Matthew 6:9-13

The One Question:
Ask this question at your family meal or DNA.

Jesus began this pray with an acknowledgment of our relation to God as a Father. He could have easily instructed his followers of pray, "Our King, Our Lord, Your
Majesty," but chose, in this particular context, to redefine how our approach to God should look. How do you approach God when you enter into a time of prayer?
Use these questions to go deeper with your DNA or for personal study.
  1. Jesus invites us into the process of restoring the holy name of God in this world by calling us to live in a way that reframes his reputation on the earth. How do you accomplish this in your daily life?
  1. "Your kingdom come, your will be done," speaks to the reality that we are not in charge of our own lives. Are there areas of your life you need to surrender today?
  1. Repentance + forgiveness is a big deal - absolutely central to the Kingdom reality. How were you taught confession, repentance, and forgiveness? How has this impacted the way you live these spiritual practices out in your life?
  2. Jesus invites us to pray, “God, lead me AWAY from things that will take me off course as a citizen participating in your kingdom work." However, God also lets this temptations come so that we can overcome them and be strengthened in our faith. Are there temptations or sins you need to confess in your own life? Can you identify a person, or people, in your life that you can confess these things to?

Pray Together:

Take time to pray with and for each other.
