The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Aug 11, 2021

VIDEO episode on Spirit Juice's YouTube channel here:


There’s an intense vulnerability to letting people into your most tender moments. Allowing someone to witness a private, cherished part of life is no small thing, and being a witness to one of these moments is an honour.


There’s a particular part of Jesus’s life for which we get to be these witnesses only a few times: his experience of prayer. In these rare instances, we are privileged to see him as he sees the Father look upon him with love and delight. 


Teach us to pray. When the disciples saw Jesus pray, that’s what they asked him. They were totally captivated by the sight of him rejoicing in the presence of the Father.


Scripture invites us to be witnesses to this only a few times, but Jesus constantly experienced the Father looking at him with love and delight. We can, too, if we look to the Father. 


Let the prayer of Jesus inspire you; let him teach you to pray.
