We are discussing prayer and meditation this week on the blog. Check out this week’s 23 Things here. Who better person to learn prayer from than our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
Matt. 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you
Matt. 6:5-9 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others.
Matt. 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer
Mark 11:25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.
He said to them, “When you pray, say:
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come.
John 11:41-42 Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me
Prayer is so powerful, Jesus spoke a lot about it, and did it. Paul prayed long and often, so many men and women of the Christian Faith wrote books on prayer and spoke of the necessity of prayer, and yet so many modern day Christians don’t have time for it. Thanks for the post.
