The Prayer Life of Jesus

One way we can learn to pray effectively is by looking at the prayer life of Jesus. Although the Gospels don't provide a detailed biography of Christ, they do offer captivating glimpses into His prayer life. First, however, it will be helpful to answer a valid question, "Why did Jesus pray?" This is sometimes puzzling for Christians. After all, if Jesus is God, why did Christ need to pray?

In my opinion, there are three reasons why Jesus prayed. First, Jesus prayed as an ‘example’ to His followers, and this should be our point of reference. Second, the Incarnation consists of both divine and human natures. Therefore, from His human (Jewish) nature, it was perfectly natural for Jesus to pray. Third, the constitution of the Godhead (the Holy Trinity) allows for communication between its three Members. As God the Son, Jesus could pray to God the Father at will. This aside let us now look more closely at the prayer life of Jesus.
