Another example of how scripture is set down in an orderly fashion

“And it came to pass, that, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, one of His disciples said unto Him, Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).

This is one of the passages (see also the Messianic Psalms) which gives us some insight into the nature of His supplications. As they heard Him, the disciples felt they knew nothing about prayer!

“And the Lord said, Simon, Simon…I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not” (Luke 22:31, 32).

There we behold Him as the great High Priest making intercession for one of His own. And He “kneeled down and prayed, saying, Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless, not My will, but Thine, be done” (Luke 22:41, 42).

There is the climax of prayer: complete surrender to and acquiescence in the Divine will.
