Title: Life of Jesus-Jesus and Prayer

Life of Jesus-Jesus and Prayer
Jesus Practice of Prayer
  • Jesus was likely brought up to practice the Shema
  • Deuteronomy 64-5 4 "Hear, O Israel! The LORD is
    our God, the LORD is one! 5 "You shall love the
    LORD your God with all your heart and with all
    your soul and with all your might.
  • Mark 1228-29 28 One of the scribes came and
    heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had
    answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment
    is the foremost of all?" 29 Jesus answered, "The
    foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS

Jesus Personal Practice
  • Jesus is often seen having gone off for prayer
  • Mark 135-37 35 In the early morning, while it
    was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and
    went away to a secluded place, and was praying
    there. 36 Simon and his companions searched for
    Him 37 they found Him, and said to Him,
    "Everyone is looking for You."
  • Matthew 1423 23 After He had sent the crowds
    away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to
    pray and when it was evening, He was there

Lessons from Jesus Personal Prayer
  • 1. Jesus felt the need to be alone during times
    of great stress, difficulty, and temptation
  • 2. These times are times when others might have
    thought that the best use of his time was to be
    out doing something with the crowd
  • 3. These times of prayer are in addition to the
    morning and evening prayers that all pious Jewish
    people were involved in

Jesus Public Prayer
  • The most famous public prayer is found in the
    sermon on the mount Matthew 69-13/Luke 112-4
  • Note that there are differences in the way that
    these two prayers are presented
  • First, Luke presents the disciples as asking
    Jesus to teach them to pray
  • Luke 111 AU Luke 111 It happened that while
    Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He
    had finished, one of His disciples said to Him,
    "Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught
    his disciples."

Jesus Public Prayer
  • In Matthew, Jesus gives more specific instruction
    about prayer
  • Matthew 65-7 5 "When you pray, you are not to
    be like the hypocrites for they love to stand
    and pray in the synagogues and on the street
    corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I
    say to you, they have their reward in full. 6
    "But you, when you pray, go into your inner room,
    close your door and pray to your Father who is in
    secret, and your Father who sees what is done in
    secret will reward you. 7 "And when you are
    praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the
    Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be
    heard for their many words.

Jesus Public Prayer
  • Matthew 69-13 'Our Father who is in heaven,
    Hallowed be Your name. 10 'Your kingdom come.
    Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
    11 'Give us this day our daily bread. 12 'And
    forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven
    our debtors. 13 'And do not lead us into
    temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours
    is the kingdom and the power and the glory
    forever. Amen.'
  • Luke 112-4 2 And He said to them, "When you
    pray, say 'Father, hallowed be Your name. Your
    kingdom come. 3 'Give us each day our daily
    bread. 4 'And forgive us our sins, For we
    ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted
    to us. And lead us not into temptation.'"

Things to Note
  • 1. Jesus teaches us to pray for the coming of the
  • 2. Jesus teaches us to pray for the continued
    holiness of the name of God
  • 3. Jesus teaches us to pray for our own
    forgiveness based on the way that we have
    forgiven others
  • 4. Jesus teaches us to pray for help against the
    temptations of the evil one

Things to Note

    Lords prayer see the Westminster Larger
    Catechism questions 186 through 107.
  • See also commentaries on the gospel of Matthew
  • See dictionaries on early Jewish prayers.

Main Emphasis of Jesus Teaching
  • 1. Trust- Matthew 68 "So do not be like them
    for your Father knows what you need before you
    ask Him. (Mt. 77-11 2121-22)
  • 2. Forgiveness-Matthew 1835 35 "My heavenly
    Father will also do the same to you, if each of
    you does not forgive his brother from your
  • 3. Communal- it is us rather than me Matthew
    1819 19 "Again I say to you, that if two of you
    agree on earth about anything that they may ask,
    it shall be done for them by My Father who is in

Practical Notes

    every great church comeback church great

  • 2. Prayer is the bottom line answer to any
    churches real needs it is more important than
