TRANSCRIPT:

Paul Washer – Founder, HeartCry

Let’s open up our Bibles to Luke 11.

Luke 11:1. “It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John also taught his disciples.’”

I want us to notice some things that are very, very important here. I believe with all my heart it was a fearful thing to watch Jesus pray. That it was an awesome event, higher than any other thing He did, because if you notice here, it says “It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished.” No one dared touch that ark.

When He was bowed on His knees, when He was calling out to His Father it was like no other thing anyone had ever seen on the face of the earth. And then it goes and it says, “One of His disciples said to Him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’”

Now, I find this a most amazing statement and I find it a statement that is very, very overlooked among those who study this text.

If you’ll notice something very, very important. A disciple never came to Jesus and said, “teach us to preach.” A disciple never came to Jesus and said, “teach us to walk on water.” A disciple never came to Jesus and said, “teach us to raise the dead.” A disciple never came to Jesus and said, “teach us to cast out demons.”
