Lord, Teach Us to Pray

How far along are we with Christ? How large is our development? Our growth? Our stature? Our Christian maturity? This is shown by our prayer life. For our real discipleship is in the school of prayer. Likewise, most all of our dealings and disciplines of the Lord are registered there. We are not further along with Christ than we are in our praying. Prayer, for the Christian, is a life. We should speak of the prayer life. That is the exact measure of our spiritual growth. It is the exact level of our power. Satan need not attack our power; only our praying.

As they went on, the disciples began to learn that the Lord Jesus’ great secret was in prayer. They also discovered that He was in dead earnest about the fact that His big prayer secret must become theirs; and that—by His promises, His precepts, His parables, and, above all, His own tremendous practice—He was passing it on to them.

By the time our Lord was ready to depart for heaven, whatever His disciples had not learned as yet, they really did know how to pray. The secret had become theirs. Now He could depart, for He had gotten them so well-schooled in prayer and faith that they would fully trust His Word, and He could therefore trust them. They graduated. It was their “commencement.” From then on they advanced, chapter by chapter through the Acts, on their knees.

Everything was by prayer. The main reason for this is that their entire life and ours is to be on a constant miracle basis. It is His one way of getting right into everything, and doing it, by having us proceed “in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving. JJ Then He is All in all, and gets all the glory.

“Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11: 1).
