Lord, Teach Us To Pray: Day 1


Lord, Teach Us to Pray

 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” Luke 11:1

Day 1: How do we pray?

The idea of prayer brings up so many questions. How can we connect with God?  How can we be taught by Him?  How can we experience God’s power? Maybe it all starts with prayer.  But how?  We are sharing some insights from Andrew Murray this month. 

“The disciples had been with Christ, and seen Him pray. They had learned to understand something of the connection between His wondrous life in public, and His secret life of prayer. They had learned to believe in Him as a Master in the art of prayer—none could pray like Him. And so they came to Him with the request, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’ And in after years they would have told us that there were few things more wonderful or blessed that He taught them than His lessons on prayer.”

Blessed Lord! who ever lives to pray, You can teach me too to pray, me to live ever to pray. In this You love to make me share Your glory in heaven, that I should pray without ceasing, and ever stand as a priest in the presence of my God.  Amen

Can prayer be learned? How did you learn to pray?

    Love reading what both Andrew Murray and E.M. Bounds both have to teach about prayer … both authors are sorely under appreciated IMHO. Thanks for sharing this.

    Be blessed IN the love of Christ Jesus!

    And may He continue to bless you both as your book release draws near …

    I read once that PRAYER is relationship with God. I love that. There is much I want to learn about praying, but those words anchor me.

    I’m still learning. Hopefully, I’ll never stop learning.

      Yes, I have the same wish – to keep striving and keep learning.
