Understanding who we are and how we are wired is crucial to our success professionally, relationally, and in life in general. But we are not meant to stop there. Once we see who we are, there is another step we need to take. In one of his most challenging teachings, Jesus spoke directly to this, and he gives us the key to overcoming ourselves (as hard as it may be).
Prayer can be a challenging thing. If we are brand new to it, it can be awkward and clunky. We can pray all our lives and still wonder if it works. Regardless of our experience, most of us have the same question: how do we get it right? Well, Jesus directly addressed this. He said, “this is how you should pray…”. And what he describes over the next few verses is something far more than words.
