Praise the Lord everybody! I truly believe that these bible studies have been a blessing to someone, especially me. My family has encouraged me to continue, and I will, not only for that reason, it is because they have truly blessed my soul in the research and arrangement of them. Afterward, I take them and study them in their entirety for further growth for myself. Prayer changes things! Jesus changed things while here on this earth, and He can still do that through us in our prayer life today, Amen.
The disciples only asked Jesus to teach them one thing: how to pray. Since learned behavior is easier caught than taught, it would do us well to observe the prayer practice of Jesus. In this lesson we will study about Jesus life of prayer, and what He desire His followers/believers to do as to praying and communicating with God the Father. Each week we will look at notable prayers in the Bible, and from those notable prayers we will answer some questions. Also we will walk through some of Jesus' private devotions as He humble Himself before His Father in prayer time; we will have a prayer focus, apply it, and a thought4today.
