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.
We are going to start a series of devotional thoughts on the topic of Prayer. I know we often cringe when we read that. J Prayer, however, is a PRIVILEGE we get to do and NOT a DUTY that we need to PERFORM. That thought right there can change our praying forever! Jesus did not say “unless you pray a certain amount of time each day you are out of my favor” Rather, He invited us into His Father’s throne room and gave us this amazing privilege to have the same access to God His Father as He does! If that does not blow you away, I don’t know what will! When we perceive prayer as an awesome privilege instead of a dreadful obligation it is life-changing! Prayer is not only a privilege but a full-blown benefit!
