If we want to learn how to do something, it is best to go to someone who has mastered 
the art and learn from them. If you want to learn how to pray, go to Jesus, the person who 
understands prayer the most, to learn how to pray. Let’s draw near to Jesus and observe three 
powerful prayers that Jesus prayed to His Father.
Miracle-Making Prayer
In Mark 8, we read about a large crowd of about 4,000 people that had gathered to hear 
Jesus teach. Because the people had been with Jesus three days with nothing to eat,
Jesus felt 
compassion for them.
He felt they would not have enough energy to even make it home to find 
food. Instead, Jesus asked how many loaves of bread could the disciples find.
“Seven” was the 
reply. And, they also found a few small fish.
Then, through the power of prayer and calling out 
to the Father, Jesus performed a miracle.

We do not have the actual words of this prayer, but 
the Scripture states:
He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given 
thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people,
and they did  
They had a few small fish as well;
he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them. 

 The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven 
basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over (Mark 8:6-8, NIV).
Jesus prayed giving thanks for the bread and the fish that the Father had provided.
Then, the 
disciples passed out the food to everyone.
Each person had plenty to eat, and basketfuls of 
bread and fish were left over.
Jesus prayed a miracle making prayer.

Jesus teaches us to pray expectantly.
As we pray, we pray knowing that God will 
respond to the prayers of His people.
Life-Giving Prayer
In John 11, Jesus prays an incredible prayer that raises Lazarus from the dead. After 
Lazarus, a good friend of Jesus, had already been dead four days, Jesus prayed this prayer:
 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you 
have heard me.  I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people 
standing here, that they may believe that you sent me” (John 11:41-42, NIV).
Jesus already knew what His Heavenly Father was going to do. But,
He prayed audibly so that 
everyone around would know that Jesus was praying to the Father for the answer to the prayer of raising Lazarus from the dead.
Jesus teaches us to pray boldly. As we pray, we pray knowing that God can do the 
miraculous, if it is in His will. Pray for great things when you pray.
Heart-Submitting Prayer
In Luke 22, we read the prayer Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives before being 
arrested and going to the cross.

This prayer was an intense prayer as Jesus called out to the 
Father asking if there was any other way to accomplish salvation for humanity. Jesus 
understood the physical, and more importantly,
the spiritual anguish that He would go through 
on the cross.
So, Jesus prayer this:
“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me;
yet not my will, but yours be done”
22:42, NIV).
The amazing attribute of this prayer of Jesus is the submissive heart with which He prays. He 
shares with the Father what He is asking, “take this cup from me,” but He submits Himself to 
the will of His Father, “yet not my will, but yours be done.”
There is great power in a submissive 
Jesus teaches us to pray with a submissive heart. Even in our praying, we need to trust 
God to do what is ultimately right. Pray your heart.
Then, trust His response. Pray that God 
would have His way and His will in your life.
Three powerful prayers from the One who knows best how to pray.
Follow these models 
to pray as Jesus prayed.

Jesus Bless You All
