Jesus Teaches Prayer "Saying Grace"… Detoured to Repentance.

Jesus Teaches Prayer

While studying, for the first time in any depth:

Matthew 14:16-20

16 But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!" 17 And they *said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish." 18 And He said, "Bring them here to Me." 19 And ordering the multitudes to recline on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave to the multitudes, 20 and they all ate, and were satisfied. And they picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets.

My whole Christian life, I have been breaking every prayer principle in Scripture regarding praying before meals.

In my repentance, I was struck at the matter-of-fact resolve with which I approached that repentance.

We are convicted in two primary ways:

1. Brokenness.

2 Steadfast resolve to obey.

David teaches us that both are valid, and our souls experience both.
