To pray like Jesus starts by getting to know Jesus. We need to spend time with Him, listening to His heartbeat, allowing our hearts to come into sync with His heart; listening to His words, training our minds to think like He thinks and our lips to speak words that He speaks. Listening is key. What would it look like for you to join Jesus in prayer today?
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.—John 14:13, 14
Prayer: Jesus, there are so many things buzzing around in my mind right now. Quiet my thoughts so that I can hear Your voice. I don’t want the words “in Jesus’ name” to be a tagline to my prayers. I want to be Your prayer partner, praying alongside You for the Father’s kingdom and glory. In Your powerful name I pray, Amen.
