Prayer. A word that conjures up all kinds of responses, ideas and feelings.
For some, it's everything. A well-worn path. For others, it's complicated. A frustrating practice.
There is a moment in the the gospel of Luke where Jesus has been praying, yet again. The disciples have observed his vibrant prayer life for many months now and seen him do all kinds of spectacular things as a result. Frustrated with their own, they come to him with a request:
"Lord, teach us to pray."
This question is the heart of our new series. We want to look at the prayer life of Jesus and let Him mess with our own ideas and practices of prayer. Seeing as the normal Christian life is with our new identity "in Christ", we want to experience what it is to pray as He showed us is possible.
As Jesus did, let's do.
"In Jesus, amen."
