Jesus gave his disciples specific instructions on how to pray.

It is sometimes challenging to learn how to pray as we ought, especially with all the various kinds of literature that is available. With all the many methods and theories that are being proposed by various scholars, it can be overwhelming.

Unfortunately, in the quest to discover the best method of prayer, we often forget the words of Jesus. When teaching his disciples, Jesus had much to say on the topic and gave specific instructions on how to pray.

Below are several quotes from the Gospels that highlight Jesus’ teaching on prayer.
