If you want to learn to shoot a jump shot, you ask Michael Jordan. If you want to learn to cook, you ask Gordon Ramsey or Rachael Ray. If you want to learn to build something, you call Bob Villa.
If you want to learn to pray, you ask Jesus.
That’s what the disciples did. Being around Jesus all the time, they couldn’t help but notice his prayer life. It seemed like Jesus was always praying. Jesus would wake up early before everyone else to meet with His Father. He would take trips to the mountainside for solitude and prayer. Jesus prayed with people and by himself. He prayed at different times and in different places. Jesus prayed.
So no wonder the disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray.” And he did. Listen in as Jesus teaches his followers about prayer.
