May 10, 2016   Acts 20:17-27;   John 17:1-11a

Very often we hear in scripture that Jesus withdrew from His mission work in order to pray.   Prayer fueled His work … and His example teaches us the importance of prayer.  Jesus taught us to pray.

In today’s Gospel … Jesus gives us a format for prayer by offering praise and glory to His heavenly Father.  He came to glorify the Father … to teach us how to live … to bring us salvation … and to promise and assure us … that the Spirit would dwell among us to guide us.

This Gospel offers us an outline of how we are to pray. Jesus gives us the format … and the example … of how to communicate with the Father … and spread the Good News.

Let us confidently do our part and pray for the grace we need to accomplish the work that God has designed for us.
