2. Prayer is Perfectly Natural
Prayer was never an act of self-discipline or duty for Jesus. Nobody had to force Him to prayer, and because He saw prayer as a necessity, it came perfectly natural for Him.
The following texts give a few examples of how natural it was for Jesus to give thanks through prayer:
Just before Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane, he sought God’s council through prayer:
His prayer of intercession also flowed naturally from His mouth:
People are willing to spend thousands of dollars to learn how to be knowledgeable and wise; but all too often, their books, classes, etc. don’t even work. My friends, prayer is free. Through prayer, we can tap into the source of ultimate knowledge and wisdom; and best of all, prayer works! When you think about it this way, why shouldn’t it be natural for us to be in constant contact with our Life-giver, our God, the One who can foresee our future and help us avoid making terrible mistakes? Why shouldn’t we tap into this source of ultimate wisdom? Why shouldn’t prayer come perfectly natural for us, just as it did for Jesus?
