第十课(Lesson Ten) PRAYER祷告 What does the Bible say about Christian prayer? 圣经怎么讲基督徒的祷告的? Psalm 19:14 Christian prayer is a heart to heart talk with the only real God – the Triune God. 诗篇 19:14 基督徒的祷告是与唯一三位一体的真神推心置腹的,贴心的交谈。 Isaiah 59:1-2 Christian prayer is not a right. It’s a privilege Jesus earned for us. Galatians 3:26 以赛亚书 59:1-2 基督徒的祷告不是权利。是耶稣为我们赢得的特权。 加拉太书 3:26 替代文本 Acts 9:10-12 使徒行传 9:10-12 Jesus helped Paul understand. Paul’s fate didn’t depend on the quality of his prayer life. On his own Paul had tried solving his own problems rather than consulting God. He had been preoccupied with his own needs, rather than other peoples’ needs. Jesus freed him from that negative living. 耶稣帮助保罗明白。保罗的命运不在于他祷告生活的好坏。保罗曾经试着自己解决问题而不是寻求神的帮助。他心中装着的都是他自己的需要,而不是别人的需求。耶稣将他从那种消极负面的生活中解救出来。 CHRISTIAN PRAYER IS SOMETHING WE WANT TO DO ONCE WE FIND OUT WE DON’T HAVE TO DO IT. 基督徒的祷告是当我们发现我们不是必须要做它时,我们却愿意做的事情。 How should we pray? 我们该如何祷告? John 15:16 “In Jesus’ name” – This means asking God not to pay attention to us because of what we’ve done, but because of what Jesus did in our place. 约翰福音 15:16 奉耶稣基督的名—–这意味着祈求神关注我们不是因为我们做的事情,而是因为耶稣替我们做的事情。 1 John 5:14 “Do what You want, not what I want.” God is smarter than we are. He knows what’s best for us. So we give Him “veto rights” over our requests. 约翰一书 5:14 “做你(神)想做的事,而不是我想做的事。”神比我们有智慧。神知道什么对我们是最好的。所以我们给神否决权,可以否决我们的请求。 Matthew 7:7-11 Trust that God will answer us in His own time and way. 马太福音 7:7-11 相信神会以神的时间和方式回答我们。 Four possible answers:

  1. Yes – Exodus 32:7-14
  2. No – 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
  3. Wait – Malachi 4:1-6
  4. Here is something better – Job 42:10-13 四个可能的回答:
  5. 是的—出埃及记 32:7-14
  6. 不是-哥林多后书 12:7-10
  7. 等待-玛拉基书 4:1-6
  8. 赐予更好的东西—约伯记 42:10-13
  9. What do we need to have good, balanced prayers? 我们如何做,才会有好的,和谐的祷告? F—————– (Think of something you’ve done wrong today.) F———————-(想想你今天做的错事) T——————- (Think of a blessing from God today.) T————————-(想想今天神对你的祝福) O——————- (Think of some other specific person to pray for.) O————- (想想看有没有其他人需要你为他祷告) M——————- (Think of personal things you want to talk to God about.) M————(想想你想和神谈的一些个人的事情) Petitions:————————————————————- 请求———————————————— Intercessions:———————————————————- (We pray for all people, great and small, friend and foe. See 1 Timothy 2:1-2; Matthew 5:43-45) 代求:—————————————- (我们为一切人祷告,伟大或渺小的,朋友或仇敌。见提摩太前书 2:1-2; 马太福音 5:43-45) What if I don’t know what to pray for? 我们如果不知祷告些什么,该怎么办? Romans 8:26-27 We can pray from our heart and trust that the Holy Spirit will make the right requests to the Father in our place. 罗马书 8:26-27 我们可以从心祷告,相信圣灵可以替我们向天父正确的请求。 What if I feel too guilty to pray? 如果我觉得有罪,不能祷告下去,怎么办? Romans 8:34 We can pray confident that Jesus has covered all our crimes in God’s record book. 罗马书 8:34 我们可以祷告,神给我们信心,相信耶稣已经为我们在神的记录里遮掩了所有的罪。 How often should I pray? 多久祷告一次? 1 Thessalonians 5:17 We should keep the communication channel to God open all day. As we go about our business, we can let God in on our thought-lives. We still should set aside time to speak to God the way we set aside time to be with people we’re close to. (Jesus often spent all night by Himself praying to His Father in heaven.) 帖撒罗尼迦前书 5:17 我们应该全天与神敞开沟通的渠道。当我们做事的时候,我们可以让神进入我们的思想。我们应该像与我们亲近的人花时间相处一样,也要花时间向神祷告。(耶稣经常独自一整夜向天父祷告。) Great prayers in the Bible 圣经里好的祷告文 John 17 Jesus Prays for Himself and His People 约翰福音17 耶稣为自己和他的子民祷告。 1 Kings 8:22-53 Solomon’s Prayer to dedicate the first permanent Jewish Temple 列王记上 8:22-53 所罗门祷告,把第一座永久的犹太人的圣殿献给神。 Daniel 9:1-17 Daniel’s prayer admits the faults of God’s people. 但以理书 9:1-17 但以理的祷告,承认了神的子民犯的错。 Habakkuk The entire book is a prayer with God’s response. 哈巴谷书 整个书是有神回答的祷告。 People who prayed great prayers 善于祷告的人 Moses – Hannah – Samuel – David – Solomon – Daniel 摩西—哈拿—撒母耳—大卫—所罗门—但以理 Prayer Helps – Matthew 6:5-8 祷告有帮助—马太福音 6:5-8
  10. Posture: Kneeling, folded hands, and bowed head can be helpful, if they help us concentrate. 姿势:跪下,合掌,低头可以相助祷告,如果这些姿势有助于使我们集中精神的话。
  11. Place: Find a quiet place by yourself, as Jesus often did. Setting aside a definite time each day to pray there is of tremendous value in your personal devotional life.
  12. 地点:找一个安静的地方,就像耶稣经常做的一样。每天找个确定的时间祷告,对你的敬虔生活有巨大的意义。
  13. Wording: Speak honestly and directly from your heart with your own words, not with technical Bible words you don’t understand. Try to keep it brief, but not hurried. Written prayer books can be helpful if they remind us of the four elements of good, balanced prayers. They don’t need to take the place of prayers in our own words. Praying out loud, even when alone, may help you concentrate.
  14. 措辞:真诚直接的发自内心的祷告,用自己的话,而不是圣经里那些你自己都不懂的专门术语。祷告语尽量简短,但是不能仓促。提示好的、和谐的祷告的四个要素的祷告书籍会有帮助。书籍的祷告语不必代替我们自己的祷告语。大声祷告,即使在独处的时候,有助于集中精力。
  15. Reminder: Prayer and Bible study go together! “Pray through” parts of the Bible, verse-by-verse, paragraph-by-paragraph.
  16. 提醒:祷告和圣经学习要结合一起。以祷告的方式通读部分圣经,一节一节的,一段一段的。 Your title here…The Lord’s Prayer 主祷文 Jesus wants to help us understand some of the basic concepts and priorities of Christian prayer. We call the prayer He gave the Lord’s Prayer. It’s in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:1-4. 耶稣想帮助我们理解基督徒祷告的一些基本概念和首要的事情。我们把耶稣赠与我们的祷告叫做主祷文。在马太福音 6:9—13 和路加福音 11:1-4. The Lord’s Prayer Explained 对主祷文的解释 Our Father in heaven, 我们在天上的父, We’re praying in Jesus’ Name. Don’t give us what we deserve. Give us what Jesus earned us – the opposite of what we deserve. Don’t hear us because we do religious things, like pray, like praying the Lord’s Prayer. Don’t hear us because of what we’ve done. Hear us because of what Jesus did in our place. 奉耶稣基督的名祷告。不要给我们我们应该受的事情。给我们耶稣为我们赢得的—-我们应受的反面。不要因为我们作了宗教的事情,比如祷告,祷告主祷文而聆听我们。不要因为我们所做的事情聆听我们。因为耶稣为我们所做的,聆听我们。 Hallowed be your name. 愿人都尊你的名为圣。 Your Name is Your reputation – what we know about You from the Bible. You want to be famous for what Jesus did for sinners. Help our 1 priority be daily Bible use as we grow as Your people. Help us remember we may be the only Bible some people ever read. Help us remember people learn from what our lives and expressions preach. Help us show that what Jesus did for us means a lot. 你的名就是你的名声。—也就是我们在圣经里了解到的你。你想要以耶稣为罪人所做的著名。帮助我们把每天使用圣经作为第一首要的事情,以成长为你的子民。帮助我们记住,我们可能是有些人曾经读过的唯一的圣经。帮助我们记得,人们从我们的生活和表达里传达的教导里,学到东西。帮助我们去表明耶稣为我们所做的,意义重大。 Your kingdom come. 愿你的国降临 Your kingdom is Your family of believers. Keep me part of that select group. Bring as many other people into it as possible before it’s too late. You are passionate about rescuing people for heaven. Your kingdom comes when Your people go to the world with Your word. Give us the words to say and the courage to say them. Help me never forget the Holy Spirit’s supernatural power even when dealing with “hopeless” cases. Make us and all Your people willing to pray, work, and give to bring Jesus to others. Help us care about people who are weak believers or who don’t know Jesus’ news at all. 你的国即你的信徒大家庭。请使我成为你拣选的人群的一部分。把尽可能多的人带到这个群体,尽快,以免来不及。你心里火热,为要于拯救人们去天堂。当你的子民带着你的话语到世界去,你的国降临了。请给我们要说的话和说这话的勇气。请帮助我永远记住圣灵的超自然能力,即使在处理令人绝望的事情上。使我们和你所有的子民愿意祷告,工作,奉献,把耶稣基督带给其他人。请帮助我们,使我们关爱信心软弱的信徒,或者那些还不知道福音的人。 Your will be done on earth as in heaven. 愿你的旨意行在地上,如同行在天上。 You “want” all people to be saved and come to know the truth. You “want” everyone who depends on Jesus to have never-ending life. That’s what You want most of all. Help us remember You base all Your decisions for our lives on those important facts. Help us remember to give You “veto-rights” over whatever we ask. You are smarter that we are. You know best. Help me remember that when You say “no.” 你想要所有人得救,认识真理。你想要每个信靠基督的人获得永生。这就是你最大的愿望。请帮助我们记得,你基于那些重要的事实,做出关于我们的生活的决定。请帮助我们记得,你对我们的请求有否决权。你远比我们智慧。你无所不知。请帮助我记住这点,当你说不的时候。 Give us today our daily bread. 我们日用的饮食,今日赐给我们。 You give life’s necessities even if we don’t ask. We take You for granted. We always have our hands out. You’re no genie in a bottle, serving our every whim. You promise what we need, not everything we want. 即使我们不求,你也会给我们每日所需。我们把你认为是想当然的。我一直伸出手索取。你并不是瓶里的精灵,满足我们每一个冲动的念头。你承诺给我们需要的东西,而不是我们想要的每一样东西。 Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. 免我们的债,如同我们免了人的债。 Thanks for not being a selective forgiver. Thanks for not waiting until we’re really “sorry.” Thanks for not waiting until we promise we won’t do wrong again. Thanks for not putting conditions on Your forgiveness. Help us do better at forgiving the way You do. People closest to us and people we don’t know need it. Help us forgive in honor of Jesus, not because of what we’ll get out of it. 感谢神,不是一个挑剔的赦免者。感谢神,没有等到我们真正“抱歉”的时候。感谢神,没有等到我们保证不会再犯错的时候。感谢神没有在赦免上附加条件。请帮助我们像你赦免我们一样,使我们在赦免他人的时候做的更好。那些我们关系密切的人和陌生人需要我们的原谅。请帮助我们为了耶稣的缘故而原谅别人,而不是为了从中谋取什么。 Lead us not into temptation. 不叫我们遇见试探, You led Jesus into temptation in the wilderness. His whole life was an unbroken record of successes in the face of temptations. Give us Bible reinforcement and unselfish motives to make right decisions about how we’re going to behave. 你使耶稣在旷野受试探。耶稣的整个一生都是面对试探没有妥协的记录。请让圣经给我们力量,给我们无私的动机,从而做出正确的决定,决定下一步如何行动。 But deliver us from evil. 救我们脱离凶恶, Our definition of “evil” and Your definition are not the same. We think anything unexpected, anything that hurts, anything that causes us problems is evil. You let these things happen for our eternal welfare. You turn evil into good. Keep us from whining. 我们对凶恶的定义与你不同。我们把任何出乎意料的事,任何伤害我们的事,任何造成问题的事,都看作是凶恶的。但是你却使这些事情发生,为了我们永远的福乐。你变邪恶为美好。不让我们抱怨。 For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are Yours now and forever. Amen. 因为国度,权柄,荣耀,全是你的,直到永远,阿们。 You’re the one in control of everything that happens everywhere. You’re in charge of all the twists and turns of our individual lives. When all is said and done, when we look back at our lives and our world when we’re in heaven one day, we’ll be able to say, “I wouldn’t change a thing.” You deserve the credit for that. You mastermind things with more wisdom, insight and knowledge than we could ever have. Help us mean what we pray in the Lord’s Prayer. 你控制发生在每个地方的每件事。你安排我们人生里所有的曲折坎坷。当要说的和要做的都完成了,当我们某天在天堂回首往事的时候,我们会说:我不想改变以前的任何经历。荣耀归于你。你用比我们曾经拥有的更多的智慧,洞见,知识策划事情。帮助我们,就是指我们在主祷文里的祷告。 HOMEWORK – 作业 Multiple Choice.
