Worship Series: Unfolding the Prayer

 He said to them, “When you pray, say:

'Abba, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.

Give us each day our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’”

-- Luke 11:2-4 (NIV) --



Have you ever wondered about the deeper meaning of the Lord's Prayer? This four-week worship series will invite you to explore this iconic prayer as a beautiful origami creation.

Just like the initial folds define the entire origami figure, the Lord's Prayer starts by establishing our love for God, echoing the commandment to love (Luke 10:27). This opening act, like a foundational valley fold, sets the stage for everything that follows.


But the prayer doesn't stop there. As we move forward, we'll delve into the intricate details that personalize our connection with the divine. These sections, like the delicate folds that add unique flourishes to origami, represent our petitions for daily needs, relationships, and inner struggles.


This series is designed to unfold in a progressive manner, dedicating each week to a specific aspect of the prayer.


  • Week 1: The Powerful Fold of "Abba" - We'll unpack the rich meaning and significance of addressing God as "Abba," acknowledging its beauty and the challenges it may hold for some.

  • Week 2 & 3: The First Folds of Love - These weeks will delve into the initial petitions of the Lord's Prayer, focusing on our love and reverence for God.

  • Week 4: Unfolding Love for Neighbor and Self - The final week will explore the remaining petitions, revealing how our love for God translates into loving our neighbors and ourselves.


Join us on this inspiring journey as we unfold the layers of the Lord's Prayer, deepening our connection with God and enriching our spiritual practice.
