We’re all doing a lot of sanitizing right now, but one thing I love about the Bible is that it
doesn’t sanitize people’s behavior – even godly people. Take the disciples of Jesus, for example. Their courage to originally follow Jesus and their sacrificial devotion to spreading his gospel make them key players in God’s kingdom. But the Bible doesn’t hide the fact that they were sometimes self-absorbed… sometimes afraid… and sometimes slow to trust what Jesus taught them.
But one moment when the original followers of Jesus got it really, really right was when they asked for his help with something that is essential to a personal faith. They had been impacted by seeing how important prayer was in the life and ministry of Jesus, but they felt inadequate in their own prayers. So they said to Jesus, “Teach us to pray.”
As we launch our new teaching series,
Well Prayed, tomorrow at TryChurchOnline.com, I’m asking God to teach you and me to pray. This series will be
more than a teacher saying, “We should all pray more.” It will highlight the reasons we all have to WANT to pray. Every good parent realizes there are good habits his/her child will embrace, if the child will simply trust the parent’s guidance to try it and learn to do it well. That’s what our Good, Good Father knows about us and prayer.
"See" you tomorrow,
