In The Garden Jesus Prayed | How to Pray | 4k music video

Both a passion week and prayer song called: In The Garden Jesus Prayed.

After being in the upper room with His disciples, Jesus went to a place to pray just before His death and resurrection. It might have been a garden outside Jerusalem Israel where Jesus prayed.

The lyrics written by Drew Haninger are:

In the garden Jesus prayed
In the garden Jesus prayed
Not my will, but thine be done
Not my will, but thine be done

God’s will, not my will
God’s plan, not my plan
In the garden Jesus prayed

In the garden Jesus prayed
Beautiful garden a garden for prayer
Not my will, but thine be done
God’s will, not my will
God’s will, not my will
In the garden Jesus prayed

Jesus died on the cross
Jesus rose from the dead
Jesus gives eternal life
Beautiful garden a garden for prayer
In the garden Jesus prayed

In the garden Jesus prayed
In the garden Jesus prayed
In the garden Jesus prayed

Let Heaven break through

Let God break through
So pray and pray let God come in
Let heaven rule upon earth
Thy will in heaven, come to the earth
Thy kingdom come, Thy kingdom come
Let Heaven break through

Thy will be done, thy kingdom come
On earth as in heaven
Let Heaven break through

Praying with God or God Praying with Us

Sometimes when we pray, it is hard to know who is initiating the prayer.  Is it us or God.  In Romans 8:26, Paul says the Spirit help us to pray.  But sometimes we are seeing a need and start praying.  Other times it seems we sense a need for prayer for someone or something. And then there is times we are with others and they initiate the prayer.

We are praying and asking God for the prayer of God.  Consider what Jesus talks about in John 15:7.   If you are one with the Lord, you are obeying the Lord, you are abiding in the Lord, and His Word is dwelling in you, then you are one with the Lord, and what the Lord wants to pray, you want to pray, what the Lord wants to ask the Father through your prayer, you want to ask the Father.  So who is really praying here?  Is it us praying or is it God praying?  It is kind of hard to understand.

The Example of Elijah in the book of James

James was a man of prayer.  In fact, James 5 talks about a similar principle. The last part of verse 16 says, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” Then James goes on to talk about Elijah.  Verse 17, “Elijah was a man subject to like passions…” He was a man, just like we are. He had feelings just like you and I have. Then it says, “And he prayed earnestly” or the literal Greek is, “He prayed in prayer” or, “He prayed in his prayer”.  It is kind of a strange construction in the English. “He was a man of like passions as we are, and he prayed in prayer that it might not rain”. In other words, Elijah had an experience, here, of not praying his own prayer, but praying the prayer of God. You could say he prayed the prayer that God put on his heart, or prayed the prayer that God burdened him with.  Here Elijah was praying the prayer of God.

The Prayer Example of Young Samuel in the Old Testament

We have another prayer example of Samuel in the Old Testament.  This is the story of Samuel as a young boy.  He was learning how to serve God and how to do the things of God. He was just beginning, or barely beginning to hear the voice of God.  At one point, he thought Eli, the priest, was calling him, but he eventually learned that it was the Lord who was speaking to him. The phrase that Samuel repeated back to the Lord at this point was, “Speak Lord, for your servant hears.” In other words, Samuel had the attitude that whatever God would speak, he would hear, and whatever God asked him to do, he would do.

Worship God in Spirit

Out of everything in the whole universe, our human spirit is the most important because it allow us to worship God who is Spirit.

God wants worship, the best (and only) way is to worship God is with our spirit, because God is Spirit. See John 4:24 where Jesus says “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”.  Notice where there is a capital Spirit referring to God, and a lower case spirit related to our human spirit.

So watch this short devotional video on “Worship God in Spirit”

Then in the book of Zechariah, the writer in 12:1 talks about the heavens, the earth and the spirit of man.  Zechariah 12:1  “The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth,
and formeth the spirit of man within him”.

In the whole universe, our human spirit is the most important because it allow us to worship God who is Spirit.  Having a human spirit is like having a radio receiver tuned to the right frequency to connect with and listen to God who on the “Spirit” wavelength.

Listen To Jesus

It’s so easy to get distracted with good religious things and miss Jesus. Jesus is the focus of the New Testament. Jesus is the main subject. Even the good disciples like Peter could get distracted with doing something “great” for God and miss the Son of God, Jesus, who was standing right there.

So watch this short video on “Listen to Jesus”

In Matthew 17,  Jesus takes His top three disciples up to a mountain, and there Jesus was transfigured or glorified. He probably looked like He might appear in heaven. His top three disciples were Peter, James and John. Peter had a great idea, but God did not agree with the idea and so God spoke from the heavens. God said “This is my beloved Son, Hear Him“. Too many times we have a “great idea” for God. But many times God does not agree and may speak to us and tell us to just “Listen to Jesus”. So how do we “listen to Jesus”, the easiest and best way is to just read the Bible.
