Pray With Intimacy
Passage: Luke 11:1–11:4
Learning to pray is simple, yet very profound. Jesus, the Master Teacher, was asked to teach his followers to pray. His model is so simple, yet so multifaceted and complex. The starting place of prayer is divine relationship – “you must be born again.” Prayer without the “Father” relationship is useless.
