The Prayer Life of Jesus Christ

Rev. Dr. Olusegun Adeleke

Christ life was filled with prayer. He started His ministry on the foundation of prayer, continued with prayer and ended with it. If there is someone that should be expected not to pray, it is Jesus Christ, because He is the Son of God. However, S.D Gordon who was quoted by Dave Earley said the following about the prayer life of Jesus Christ:

“The man Christ Jesus prayed;

he prayed; prayed much;

needed to pray; loved to pray.”

Prayer remains the present day ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ. He ever lives to make intercession for the saints - Heb. 7:25.

The goal of this message is to challenge us to step up in our prayer lives more than ever. There is so much need for praying men and women at this time. God is eagerly looking for men who will stand before the “tomb” of our Nation, family and church, as Jesus did at Lazarus' tomb, to intercede and pray them back to life - Lk. 11:41; Ezek. 22:30.

May the Lord find you and I as gap fillers at this time in the life of our nation. This would be a means of averting looming National disaster.

Some of the insights that can be gleaned from the recorded prayers of Jesus Christ in our text are as follows:

 

1.                  His prayer is always borne out of compassion - V.33.

You can’t be an effective intercessor without a bowel of compassion.

Dry eyed and strong hearted people can’t be effective intercessors. 

2.        His prayer is always predicated on purity - V.39,41.

The stone in this passage stands for hinderance. This may symbolise sin which stands to hinder our prayers. Once sin is dealt with, there is a high probability of getting answers to our prayers.
