As water is important to human life and living, so is prayer to a spiritual soul. Again, when you follow the pattern of the Master-Jesus Christ, you shall make an impact in this generation. You will save your life,church,family,business and nation. Remember,when the disciples were thirsty of the Master’s footsteps and success in the ministry, they said to Him,
“ Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1)
In the ministry of prayer, Jesus is the good teacher. The Lord’s teaching is the best. It is genuine and unique. Understanding how to ask and receive is possible through the Master’s teaching. When a man teaches you, he will teach the natural while God teaches the Supernatural through the power of the Holy Spirit. He goes beyond. His teaching transforms, inspires, regenerates and gives strength for an action. Only the Lord can teach you for nobody is above teaching.
‘O, Lord, teach us for your teaching makes the difference!
Walking according to the Master’s teaching brings an answer. His Word teaches on intercession, patience, endurance, joy, meekness, holiness, love, waiting patiently upon Him and other things.
God knows how to teach. He taught our “first parents” at the beautiful garden of Eden. He taught “Abraham” how to be faithful; “Enoch”, how to walk with Him. “Noah”, how to build an ark; “Samuel”, the life of devotion. He taught “Solomon” wisdom; “Moses”-how to be meek; “Elijah” on how to be bold. “Elisha and Ruth”-how to be good disciples. He taught “David” how to conquer the giants; “Daniel”-how to intercede. He taught “Joseph” on the life of integrity. “Job”-patience and “Jeremiah” –how to weep for the Land. He taught “Obadiah” how to fear Him greatly and taught “Mary”-how to sit patiently at His feet to listen to His Word. He is a good teacher. Because Jesus Christ is interested in you and your ministry of prayer. He teaches the best.
The disciples saw Jesus Christ performing miracles, raising the dead, doing the incredibles, praying fervently and walking in the realm of the supernatural. One day, they requested that He should teach them. I can hear them say, yes! It is true that we have sat under different tutors,doctors,teachers,professors and ambassadors but “Lord” we have discovered that your ways are quite different and best. You receive an answer whenever you pray.
Please, “teach us!”
The disciples did not say, “Lord, teach us how to pray” rather “Lord, teach us to pray”. They wanted to pray, not to be taught about prayer. This means, they really loved to be involved in the spiritual exercise. The Word of God says;
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6)
“Happy are those whose heart's desire is for righteousness: for they will have their desire”.(BBE)
