Teach Us To Pray

"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, as John also taught his disciples. (Luke 11:1)"

 As we look at prayer let us look at this verse. We will take a look at just one section of this verse.  The first thing I would like to look at is "...as he was praying..." As I begin to look at this verse all of my prayer failures come to mind. How many times do I regret not learning to pray more earlier in my life. Over the years I have learned how to pray from different men of God. The first question we need to ask ourselves from this verse is "Do I pray?" If someone were to come upon you in your bedroom, out in the woods, walking by a stream, etc. would they find you praying? As we look at this verse will you search your daily schedule and find a time you can set aside to pray? Could someone find you praying?
