Teach Us

Re:Verse passage – Luke 11:1-4 (day five)  “It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…”. Part of my faith in Christ boils down to the following question, “Does Jesus know how to navigate life on earth better than I do?”

This is one of those moments when a disciple of Jesus was asking the right question. They saw and sensed how prayer helped Jesus. Possibilities of hope and courage- for them and for us.  Maybe we could learn from Him.  Maybe prayer could shape and inform our lives to live like Him.

“My central claim is that we can become like Christ – by following him in the overall style of life, he chose for himself. If we have faith in Christ, we must believe that he knew how to live. We can, through faith and grace become like Christ by practicing the types of activities, he engaged in, by arranging our whole lives around the activities he himself practiced in order to remain constantly at home in the fellowship of his father” – Dallas Willard

Jesus, teach us to pray!!
