Jesus Prayed; Then He Taught His Disciples
After Jesus had prayed, His disciples
Asked Him to teach them how to pray like Him.
He taught them to pray to God the Father.
This showed that we are the children of God.
Jesus became man to save the sinners.
We should love God; He has forgiven us.
We ask God for the right amount to eat.
A healthy meal is much more than a treat.
After I had read about fifteen Scott
Hahn books, I became convinced to go to
Mass and Communion nearly every day.
Live the Gospel to be worthy of it.
We ask for strength to deal with temptation
Since temptation is part of life on Earth.
