Luke 11:1 – “Lord, Teach Us to Pray.”

Context:  There is a a change of scene after Jesus was at Mary and Martha’s house.  He will follow this question with the Lord’s Prayer.

Luke 11:1 – “Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.’”

Observation:  What must it have been like to watch the Son of God talk to God?  Out of all of the things the disciples could have asked Jesus to teach them, we see them ask Jesus to teach them to pray.

Application: “Lord, teach me to pray!  I want to be communicating with You in the way You intend.”

Is prayer an active part of your life?  Ask God to teach you to pray.  Read Jesus’ response in verses 2-4 and meditate on it.
