July 12 2017 Jesus: Prayerful, Passionate

We may be familiar with the key events in Jesus’ life.  But, are we as familiar with his life of prayer, or better yet, that his whole life was a prayer?  We can glimpse it in key moments, for example:  his baptism; the calling of the Twelve Apostles;  the Transfiguration; His death on the Cross; and elsewhere.  These were moments of passionate prayer as we can see at the Transfiguration and reading the Psalms he prays during his Crucifixion.  For us, those of us desiring to draw closer to Jesus and better experience his love, we need the help of the Holy Spirit to clear the obstacles in our hearts, to make more room for him and to ask his help to pray passionately!
