Prayer Basics

DAY 1 OF 7

JESUS’ PRAYER LIFE There is diversity in the ways we pray because all of us are raised differently. Thus, our upbringing shapes our prayer style. For example, some religions focus on posture while others concentrate on chants. When we accept Jesus in our lives, we bring with us our old perceptions and mannerisms of speaking to God. We can’t say that any one style is the right way. What would then be the ‘ideal way’ to pray to God? Let’s follow the teachings of Jesus. Let’s neutralize our backgrounds and in its place develop a culture of prayer life based on the Holy Bible. Luke 11:1 – Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.” What can we learn from Jesus’ prayer life? 1. Jesus had a ‘certain’ place and time for prayer – that’s value and discipline for prayer. 2. Jesus started praying and He finished praying which means Jesus prayed with some sense of order and dignity. 3. Notice that Jesus’ disciples came to Him after He ‘ceased’ praying. Why? Because they knew that they could disturb Jesus while He multiplied bread, when He was tired and resting, or when He slept during the storm to wake Him to calm a storm. But the disciples knew that they couldn’t disturb Jesus when He was praying. Have we communicated to others what we value spiritually? If we haven’t, it means we haven’t followed the prayer-style of Jesus effectively. Heavenly Father, thank You for showing us the right way to pray. We want our prayer life to be taught individually by You because our life cannot be compared with another and because You have a plan for our life. In Jesus’ name... Amen!
