More To This

This was in a blog that I read daily, and I could not help but pass it along. Great questions. Great answers.

Long have we labeled prayer as only the petitioning, the coming with the lists and the ardent entreaties.

But if that is all prayer is, then why did Jesus pray? Why would very God pray? God need not beg of God. Prayer must be more than asking, supplication; that can’t be why Jesus prayed.

To give us an example? Yes, surely. But more.

Could prayer ultimately be about a Son wanting Father? A Son missing intimacy with His Father? A Son longing for the communion of relationship within the Godhead?

A Child coming and pressing close to Father with the prayer, “I need your face. Turn to me.”
