- In verses 5-6, Jesus contrasts public, performance-driven prayer with quiet, solitary prayer. What is the difference between the two, and why does it matter in our relationship with God?
- In verses 7-8, Jesus discourages wordy, repetitious prayer in favor of simple, straightforward communication. How does God’s knowledge of everything encourage honesty and openness in prayer?
- In verse 9, Jesus instructs His disciples to address God as Father. How is this even possible, and how does it change the way you pray?
