Learning from When Jesus Prayed …

prayJesus loved to pray. He not only prayed before important events and significant decisions, but in any and all other circumstances. Day and night, prayer was His way of life. Here are just a few of the many times Jesus prayed:

Prayer in the midst of a busy life. “In the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed” (Mark 1:35).

Prayer against popularity. Jesus saw the danger of becoming popular. When “great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by Him of their infirmities,…He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed” (Luke 5:15-16).

Prayer after success. After a time of successful and fruitful ministry, Jesus gave thanks to the Father: “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes” (Luke 10:21).

Prayer at a grave. Jesus’ friend Lazarus was dead and He was about to perform a miracle of resurrection. Knowing what was about to happen, He prayed, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me…but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me ” (John 11:41-42).

Prayer from the cross. From the beginning to the end of His time on earth, Jesus modeled a life of prayer. In fact, His used His closing breath to pray, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit’” (Luke 23:46).

If prayer was this important in the life of God the Son, shouldn’t it be important to you as well? Nurture the habit of prayer? “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).
