Be Like Jesus by Doing This

I wish I could be like Jesus. Have you ever had that thought? You wish you could heal your loved one. You wish you could speak and calm storms – literally and figuratively.  There are many ways we cannot be like Jesus, but there is one way we can be like Him. We can be prayerful.  Yes, Jesus prayed and we can pray often and fervently, privately and publicly, thanking our Father for our food, and praying over upcoming challenges and hard things to do. We can be like Jesus and teach others to pray as He taught the disciples in Matthew 6:9-13. If you wish you were more like Jesus, why not begin by being more prayerful? “Pray, then, in this way….” Matthew 6:9a.

Heavenly Father, thank You that although there are many ways we may not be like Jesus, you allow us to be like Him by being able to come to You in prayer. Thank You that we can pray. Quicken us to be more prayerful.
