Jesus’ Example of Prayer

Jesus Christ was the perfect disciple. He always prayed to His Father and showed us the way to pray. He prayed for His disciples, that they would be strong. He forgave in His prayers. He prayed for those who sought to kill Him. He always remembered to express thanks to His Father. He prayed alone as well as with others.

What’s the point?

Studying the prayers of Jesus is especially instructive. When studying the prayers He offered, one must also study the stories that precede, follow after, or provoke His prayers. He followed His own teachings about prayer and fulfilled all the commandments of His Father.


Here is a list of the times recorded in the scriptures that Jesus prayed. They are roughly in chronological order and named as best as possible.
