Don’t you hate it when someone begins to preach during a prayer? I do. Always have hated it. Buth then I read this….
41So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
Hmm… Jesus is supposed to be our model. Jesus prayed to God, aloud, and in that prayer said something specifically for the benefit of those who heard Him. Maybe we need to follow His example in this too….
