How the Lord Jesus Taught US To Pray

Invading the Impossible

Lord, teach us to pray.

Luke 11:1

Jesus’ disciples asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray.”

In response, Jesus taught them nothing of mysticism, religious pretense, or meditation. Nothing of bizarre physical contortions or memorized incantations attended by clouds of incense.

But He did teach them something about violence. Jesus was very clear about it: Prayer is a matter of war—prayer is about invasion, assault, and force.

On earth-side, things may seem impenetrable, yet from the heaven-side, activated by prayer, there is a spiritual violence that can invade and overthrow the impossible.
