“Our Father” was the song written for “Knowing Jesus” to capture the essence of Jesus’ prayer life. In studying the gospels, you can’t escape from the fact that Jesus prayed a lot. And when Jesus prayed, stuff happened.
Unfortunately, for many of us, our prayer life can be characterized by the statement: “All we have left to do now is pray.” Can you imagine the Almighty God hearing such pathetic pleas as if He is a last resort? Prayer is not a spare tire. Prayer is not a last ditched effort. Prayer – communion with God – shakes heaven and earth.
