Of course we will!

Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray (Luke 6:12)

Italiano Español

One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him and chose twelve of them, whom he also designated apostles: Simon (whom he named Peter), his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all. (Luke 6:12-19)

With Jesus and His disciples, prayer always precedes action. We can say, indeed, that human action is nothing more than an extension of our prayerful contemplation of doing God's Will. Therefore, it is necessary we begin each day with a moment of silence and prayer in order to dedicate our entire day to God’s Will. So in deciding whether we should pray to Jesus, we shall say “of course we will!”
