10 Prayers of Jesus in the Bible [+Audio]

What We Can Learn from Jesus’ Prayers One of the great blessings of being a follower of Jesus is to know that right now He is interceding for His people before the Father (Roman 8:34; Hebrews 7:25). While we do not know exactly what Jesus says to the Father, we do have examples of many

“Hello”

This, then, is how you should pray. — Matthew 6:9 Most of us won’t remember the first conversation we had with our horses, but it had to have started with some form of “Hello.” I like to say hello with a brush. Brushing horses builds trust between both human and horse. Brushing makes the horse

Fighting the Enemy Through Prayer

Fighting the Enemy Through Prayer Jesus’ reminder to pray regularly against temptation reminds us just how prevalent and dangerous the appeal of sin can be in the Christian life. Once again the issue of kingdom and kingship is front and center. Sin and temptation are harsh masters. As the story of Cain reminds us, sin

Teaching Kids about Prayer

I am passionate about teaching my kids about prayer. That’s because I want my children to know God personally, not just know about Him.

Before Amen: Jesus, Teach Us How to Pray

Wouldn’t it have been nice to have been one of the 12 disciples of Jesus? They learned first hand from Jesus Himself. However, a study of the gospel accounts reveals that many of His teachings left them scratching their heads, wondering about what they had just heard. In the quiet moments, they could have asked for extra

Praying with Your Kids

Some days are just survival.  Plain and simple. Like yesterday. By noon I was begging God to magically settle the kids down so I could guiltlessly hide in my closet with a good book and a bag of chocolate. During my desperate prayer He reminded me that I can ask Him anything, but He might

Luke 11:1

Teach Us To Pray

This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
