Jonah 4: 1-11; Psalm 86; Luke 11:1-4


Prayer is really our primary speech, the most real communication we have. We learn to pray not by instruction so much as seeing others pray and then having a go ourselves. One of my earliest memories of prayer is seeing my mother pray, kneeling by their bed. The disciples catch Jesus at prayer, and they then want to do what they can feel and sense him doing. Imagine Jesus at prayer, his primary speech with the Father, and then sneak up on Jesus in love with the Father and join him in praying the Our Father.
