Jesus is praying, but are we praying with Him?
We may pray because Jesus told us to pray, or
because He modeled prayer. Maybe we pray when
situations are desperate. Prayer is the right thing
to do, but there is so much more to this mysterious
conversation, this divine opportunity.
Scripture tells us that Jesus lives to make
intercession; He lives to pray! If you listen closely,
you’ll hear what He is praying for: the burdens of
your heart, the needs of your life—the Savior is
praying for you.
Jesus made a vulnerable request at the darkest hour
of His life, asking His friends to pray with Him. But
instead of praying, they fell asleep. Prayer is primarily
relational. Jesus talks to God on our behalf, but is
He praying alone? What would it mean if we joined
Jesus in prayer?
