The Prayer Life of Jesus
Led by Tommy Valentine in fellowship hall.
Let’s admit that being Christian is not easy. We encounter temptations of one sort or another at every turn. We are disappointed by people who hurt us. The Scriptures teach us that Jesus was completely human and subject to the same temptations and frustrations common to all of us; yet, he remained sinless. He was surrounded by bumblers and opposed by the power structures, but he never gave up on them or his mission. What was his secret? We want to say his divinity made the difference, because then we would have an excuse for our failures. Yet no such claims are found in the Scriptures. I would like to propose that Jesus’ secret was a life of prayer.
