As we resume following Don’s great study of the Sermon on the Mount, we pick up with what many call The Lord’s Prayer. Don calls it the Disciple’s Prayer, which is really closer to what is truly is. Blessings and enjoy!

Sitting at the Feet of Yeshua

In this post, we continue with our study of the Sermon on the Mount by learning more about how Yeshua taught us to pray.  We have been sitting at His feet for some time now as we learn directly from Him what it means to be true talmidim and how we should pray.

We have already learned that Yeshua tells us not to be a hypocrite when we pray; that we should pray in our secret place; and, that we should not babble on and on with endless words in our prayers.

Recently, a priest, a minister and a rabbi sat discussing the best posture for prayer while a telephone line worker made repairs nearby.

“Lying prostrate on the ground is definitely the best way to pray,” the priest said.

“No,” said the minister. “I get the best results kneeling with my hands outstretched to Heaven.”

“You’re both wrong,” the Rabbi said. “The most effective prayer position is standing in the synagogue facing Jerusalem.”

The line worker couldn’t help but interject. “Hey, fellas,” he interrupted, “The best prayin’ I ever did was when I was hangin’ upside down from a telephone pole.”
