While He walked on this earth, prayer was a part of His life. It was essential to His ministry and it linked Him to His Father. Jesus Christ prayed regularly (Luke 5:16). He often prayed alone (Mark 1:35). He prayed for Himself (John 12:27-28). He gave praise and thanks to his Father (Luke 22:17-19). He prayed for the children (Matthew 19:13-15). He prayed before choosing the apostles (Luke 6:12-13). He prayed on the cross (Luke 23:34). Looking at His life, what an example we have as we step into the presence of the Holy One and tell Him all of our concerns!
