Pray Like a Son
“I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.” - Jesus
I wanted to name this teaching, Pray Like a Man. However, as I began to study, meditate, and ask the Holy Spirit what to write and convey on prayer, I felt strongly to look at the pattern of how Jesus prayed.
Jesus prayed like no one before Him. Jesus approached God, the Holy One of Israel by saying, “Father…”
This is a radical shift in the concept of prayer. So much so that the Pharisees accused Jesus of blasphemy by calling, YHWH, as Father. By replacing the tetragrammaton with the honorific but very personal moniker of Father, Jesus was emphasizing his own identity and relationship with God.
Another hesitation for me too entitle this teaching, Pray Like a Son, was because I know men. Men do not want to be childish. We find the notion of being a child again, silly at best, more likely, repulsive. So, to suggest that we should identify ourselves in the humble position of a child is a tough sell in a culture of “Man Up.”
Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” - Galatians 4:6
This teaching is to help you position yourself in the identity of sonship so that you can pray to your Father and be heard. By the conclusion of this teaching, my hope is that you radically change your position to step up to sonship and pray like a son.
