If you agree that no one is more loving than God is, or smarter, or stronger, than I'll bet you believe in the power of prayer.
So why don't you access it more often?
I may be projecting my struggle onto you, but I think prayer is one of the most difficult disciplines to master in our relationship with God. We may never get to be as good at it as we think we should, but we can get better at it by watching Jesus do it. That's what we are going to do as we study Mark 14:26-72.
