Episode 44: How to Pray the Lord’s Prayer as a Modern Christian

In the final episode of our mini-series on the Lord’s Prayer, we take a look at what this ancient prayer means for modern Christians. If each line creates a connection between the Exodus story and Jesus’ specific historical moment, does it still have a place for us today? How might we pray a New Exodus prayer in our own lives?

Episode 43: The Lord’s (New Exodus) Prayer – Part 2

Israel’s Exodus from Egypt formed the prototype for how God s rescues his people. In Jesus’ last days, he teaches his disciples a prayer that urges God to bring a New Exodus, a bigger rescue from the deeper powers of sin and death.

Today we dive into the second half of the Lord’s prayer and show how each line connects back to the Exodus story.


Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us our sins,
     for we also forgive everyone indebted to us.
Don’t bring us to the time of trial.

Episode 41: Make the Lord’s Prayer ‘Risky’ Again

Has the most famous Christian prayer become a little bit…routine? Maybe even boring?

By returning to the Lord’s Prayer and reading it in context, we can recover it as the bold, revolutionary, maybe even risky prayer that it was originally meant to be.

Episode 40: A Less Stressful, More Realistic Bible Reading Plan

It’s a new year and maybe you’ve resolved, once again, to read the Bible more this year. But is reaching for the same kind of reading plan that has proved unsustainable so many times really the best move? Could there be a better way? 

In this first episode of the new year we discuss what doesn’t work about the typical Bible reading plans, plus the habits and mindsets we can change to give us a fruitful, flourishing relationship with Scripture.
