All our differences about the different ways to pray would be eradicated if we study the way Jesus prayed. It’s important that we understand that as Important as perseverance in prayer is, the purpose is more important. Just like there are rules on a race track, there are rules in the spirit.
Luke 11:2 One thing that made the disciples seek to learn to pray from Jesus was the fact that his prayers have an intimate perspective. He prayed to God like a Father which they hadn’t seen before.
