Commentary on the Gospel of
Prayer is something private and individual. We can never teach others how we pray for they might not have the necessary disposition that we have while praying. We can only encourage them and show them our own prayer life to stimulate their own desire to have intimacy with God. We may even share with them our prayers but they have to find on their own this sense of connection and deep relationship with the Father. That is why Jesus may have taught us the only prayer that directly came from Him, but we could never recreate His disposition and inner reality.
