Bland, but he was Associate Professor of Christian Sociology and Ethics at SEBTS. He begins his message by reading Luke 11:1 and emphasizing that we can learn much about prayer from observing the example of Jesus as a man of prayer (02:45-06:29). We can also learn something about the nature of, and motivation for, prayer when we look at Jesus’s record (06:30-12:06). Jesus assumed that one who comes to the Father in prayer is free, but this freedom is a responsible freedom in the provident Heavenly Father (12:07-13:06). We must also learn the content of prayer from Jesus’s sample prayer (13:07-19:24). He ends his time in prayer (19:25-19:44), and the service ends with singing (19:45-21:04).
