It would be fascinating to know what Jesus prayed each day as he spent time with the Father. We know some things he prayed. In the garden he expressed his anxiousness to God because of the cup that he was about to drink. We know how he taught the disciples to pray. We know that he taught them to pray to God as Father, an intimate title. Jesus’ prayer life shows a conversational relationship with God. After prayer Jesus makes big decisions and is strengthened. Certainly his experience is a picture of what ours should and could be. I suppose that a good start would be to take on his practice of daily devoted prayer, and converse with God about our struggles as we ask him to realign our desires with God’s will, modeling our prayer time after the prayer Jesus taught his disciples to pray.
And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed. (Mk 1:35)
