Lord, Teach us to Pray – Pt. 2
To help his disciples learn how to pray Jesus turns to every day encounters. In that he shows us that prayer requires persistence more than mechanics and we as humans are already familiar with the practice of prayer – we just need to learn how to pray to God. We begin to do this when we grow in confidence in God through his promises and proof of power.
Lord, Teach us to Pray – Pt. 1
The disciples of Jesus saw him pray, and pray a lot. Prayer was the central force in Jesus’ life and his disciples wanted to know how to do that. So when they asked how Jesus began by teaching them, not mechanics but substance. He gave them his word to pray. Learning to pray the Word of God is the best place to start learning how to pray.
