• Now, this is very important because if were left to ourselves, any praying we might do would start and end with ourselves. That’s just the way we are. You may go ahead and admit it because there’s not much sense in your denying how selfish you are. In fact, our natural self-centeredness knows no bounds! But you see, Jesus’ prayer is a pattern, a pattern which is both crutch, road and walking directions for the spiritually lame like ourselves, and it tells us to ignore our natural self-centered instincts and start with Yahweh! He matters infinitely more than we do. ~N.H. Hoekes
