In Chapter Eleven, verse 1-13 of the Gospel of Luke, Jesus’ disciples ask Jesus to teach them how to
pray. We all know the Lord’s Prayer (from Matthew’s version from the Sermon on the Mount, which is a
bit longer than this one) but what we need to notice in Luke’s version is the attitude of prayer Jesus
teaches His followers. To pray is not to impose our will on God, but to ask God to make us open to His
will. In other words, we pray not to change God’s mind, but for God to change ours.
