1) And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
Don’t read the bible too fast, otherwise you’ll miss important parts of God’s word. Look what His disciples asked Him.
‘Teach us how to pray’.
Now me personally, before learning this, I would have said “Teach me how to heal the sick, teach me how to open blinded eye, teach me how to make a pillar of fire come down from heaven, teach me how to walk on the water, teach me how to raise the dead…”
But no… they asked Him to teach them how to pray. This shows that prayer is something that needs to be taught. Do you know how to pray?
“Well, I just talk to God”
No, no, no… That’s not what Jesus taught. I will show you in the next few posts as we discuss the order of prayer. It was so important that the disciples asked Him- how to pray.
