Prayer is an important part of our lives. Especially for Christians, prayer plays an important role. It is the way that we have been given to have contact with God. Jesus was the one who taught us how to pray and we can follow His example. Sometimes we complicate the matter when in fact it is simple. Prayer is simply talking to God. This is something that we can do as we go about our daily responsibilities and tasks.
Even though Jesus was God, prayer was still an important component of His life. It is recorded on several occasions how that Jesus went and prayed.
Luke 11:1 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place.
Luke 9:18 Once when Jesus was praying in private and his disciples were with him.
Even when Jesus was dying on the cross this prayer or talking to God the Father was taking place.
Luke 23:32-34 Two others, criminals, were led out to be executed with him at a place called “The Skull.” There all three were crucified—Jesus on the center cross, and the two criminals on either side. “Father, forgive these people,” Jesus said, “for they don’t know what they are doing.”
Jesus set an example for us to follow. No matter what we may be going through and no matter what we may be facing, prayer should be a vital part of our lives.
