Thought for the Day: Jesus’ disciples stay close to Him by making prayer a top priority.
As we wrap us this look at what it means to follow Jesus there was one other essential ingredient in his ministry with His followers — He prayed. We have examples of this throughout the gospels and is perhaps very relevant today as we’re in Day 8 of our 40 Days of Prayer. At this point the novelty has perhaps worn off and now it becomes an act of spiritual discipline. Good! Jesus taught this to his followers.
Jesus taught them how to pray in the Sermon on the Mount and also told them he expected them to pray as we read in Luke 22. He Himself established prayer as a way for his followers to communicate directly with All-mighty God as the writer of Hebrews 4 reminds us.
Prayer proves that His disciples are dependent upon Him — and true disciples of Jesus will be characterized by a vibrant prayer life.
Why does this matter?
Jesus expects His disciples to follow Him, okay Chris, I get that. This becomes important though in days like this — to learn from Him, talk to Him through prayer and to stay close to Him. That’s what He wanted from His followers during His earthly ministry and that is what He wants from His disciples today.
