Let Us Draw Near by Jonathan Master

Posted by
There are many model prayers in the Bible.  The most famous is The Lord's Prayer, recorded for us in Matthew and Luke; but there are others besides.  Recently, Mark Johnston has turned our attention to the prayer of Daniel, or, more specifically, to the prayer life of Daniel.  Both Daniel's specific prayer in Daniel 9, as well as his ongoing practice of prayer, are worthy of imitation, and it is right that we should reflect on them.

But there is an even more basic step than looking for models of prayer (though no disciple of Jesus Christ can ignore these), we must also actually pray.  Or, to put it in the language of Hebrews, we must "draw near to the throne of grace."  This is nothing less than a command.
