Part of the Prayer 101: Learning to Talk to God series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
The Disciples saw Jesus pray one evening and came to a stark realization; they did not know how to really pray. The thought they knew how, but when they witnessed the Lord prayer they realized how poorly they prayed themselves. So, they did the right thing; they asked Jesus to teach them to pray. Jesus proceeded to give them a model prayer.
Tonight we start a new series on Prayer 101: Learning to Talk to God with Part 1 - Opening Your Prayer by Being Aware.
When you begin talking to God in your prayer, you should make yourself aware of a few things to put it in the proper perspective.

1And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. (KJV)
9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11Give us this day our daily bread. 12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (KJV)
