Our Way Home

Online Book Study

Overview

When we pray, we’re hesitant to believe that our small voices will make it to the Father and that He will listen. But Jesus gave His disciples—and us—the Lord’s Prayer to guide us with words of confession, thanks, recognition, need, and praise. Whether you’ve prayed the Lord’s Prayer hundreds of times or are just beginning to learn it, Our Way Home invites you to study this model prayer and the beauty within it.

Using vivid storytelling, Paavola takes viewers through the Lord’s Prayer, learning about the depth of each petition. Learn to pray the Lord’s Prayer without hesitation and with love for what He has given us as Daniel Paavola leads you through this four-session FaithCourse.

At the end of this session, learners will be able to

  • set a reading schedule to be prepared for each session;
  • understand the broad overview of the Lord’s Prayer; and
  • describe the path from heaven, to earth, and back to heaven again.

At the end of this session, learners will be able to

  • describe the Introduction as well as the First, Second, and Third Petitions of the Lord’s Prayer in their own words;
  • understand the importance of the Lord’s name; and
  • understand what God’s will is.

At the end of this session, learners will be able to

  • describe the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Petitions of the Lord’s Prayer in their own words;
  • understand the importance of forgiveness in their life; and
  • understand that God tempts no one.

At the end of this session, learners will be able to

  • describe the Seventh Petition and Conclusion of the Lord’s Prayer in their own words;

“Heaven is the home we haven’t yet seen. But, in the meantime, we reach it in our prayers. The Lord’s Prayer assures us that we are part of the company of heaven, with all those who stand before our Father. . . . We may not have actually crossed the threshold yet, but we see our Father by faith, and we know He hears us as we’re coming.”
