In previous posts on the episode series of Who Was Jesus, Really? We discussed the development stages of Jesus’ life. We discussed in the last episode, how Jesus Christ performed his first miracle by turning water to wine at a wedding party. Then, he was a boy but now, a man!
Jesus took his ministry to the mainstream after he had performed his first miracle. (Hope you’ve been enjoying the series?)
Going forward, we will address Jesus as a man in a full-flesh of his ministry. So, let’s begin by discussing a vital aspect of his ministry – The prayer life of Jesus!
(Remember, this episode series run is being adapted from the book Who Was Jesus, Really? – Book One. Consider to get your copy here!)
Our Lord’s Prayer
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, had the habit of performing miracles and doing good things for people; but that’s not all we can learn about him. He also had a very strong prayer life!
Jesus had the habit of getting withdraw from his busy life to pray on the mountain. He even sometimes sneaked out at night (while his disciples were sleeping) to have a good quiet time with God on the mountain. (Quiet time means a prayer time).
Yeah, of course, Jesus’ disciples weren’t stupid! They realized their master was busy praying while they were busy sleeping, so they decided to do something about it.😇
The disciples knew their master-Jesus often sneaked to pray in a quiet place, so they were also ready to make the best of their discovery! The disciples did something very important. C’mon keep reading and let’s find out…✌️
Who were the disciples of Jesus Christ? Do you still remember their names? (You may want to check that episode here).
Jesus’ disciples (Peter, James, John, Matthew, Bartholomew, and others) knew the secret of their master’s success. They knew he has so much power and authority because of his strong prayer life!
Guess what? 🤔 Those disciples wanted to be like Jesus. They asked him to teach them how to pray. Can you blame them? (I wouldn’t blame them either 😀 ).
You can imagine the disciples indirectly asking “Master, tell us the secret of your power!”
Of course, Jesus didn’t hesitate to share the power-engine with his followers. He taught them how to pray!
