An Exercise for Studying Jesus’ Inferred Prayers. Questions for Individual and Group Use. 2. An Exercise for Studying Jesus’ Inferred Prayers By Brenda Poinsett When Jesus’ prayers are actually stated in the Bible, we know exactly what he was praying for.

The Life of Jesus provides the model for our prayer lives. God is seeking to mold us into the image of His Son (Colossians 1:27-28). If we are to act like Christ, our prayer lives must be conformed to His. Many Christians are unwilling to pay the price that Jesus paid when it comes to interceding with God. Jesus' prayers came with vehement cries and tears and, ‘because of his godly fear', He was heard by the Father. -Henry and Richard Blackaby. Jesus was passionate!

Jesus went with such easy power through life; what did He do in those solitary moments with God? The fame of the Lord Jesus Christ grew steadily; people brought all the diseased and the demon-possessed to Him, and He delivered them. Yet, in the midst of such a marvelous career of relieving and blessing people in need, He spent practically the whole night in prayer.
