The request is not how to pray, though He does teach us how. Neither is it what to pray, though He teaches us what. We know how to pray and what to pray better than we pray. “Lord, teach us to PRAY.” We are tempted to let other good things displace prayer, and spend hours, days, and weeks for other things but only minutes for prayer. Knowing how and what is not sufficient. We must take time to do it, for God works in answer to prayer, and God at work is our greatest need.
