Table Manners: Learning to pray like Jesus
If the disciples can ask Jesus to teach them to pray, how much more might we need to learn the power of prayer? Jesus often withdrew to lonely places to pray, but on occasion, he prayed in the presence of the disciples, in this they developed a hunger to approach this table of grace, just as Jesus did. Jesus instituted communion, around the table, he instructs his disciples that prayer is a mighty tool in the hand of a believer. It is where we get to know our Father, learn our Father’s heart, receive nourishment from him, guidance from him, and it is here that we tap into his power. Its simply called prayer, but that small word does not fully describe how wonderful a blessing and privilege that it is.
