The disciples were in the midst of their ministry, seeing both great joys and horrendous struggles for following Jesus. Jesus had learned an important lesson when in such a ministry. What was it? Why did He need to pray if He is the Son of God? How should your prayer life be different when you are in ministry? What does the Lord’s prayer command of you toward those who may be your adversaries? How often should you pray? Why? What will God give for the diligent prayer life? What will happen when the Lord has great victory? What should a Christian response be to persecution, tests or mocking? What did Jesus do to spur us on in a wicked generation? What did He accuse the Pharisees of? What was their response at the end of this passage? Sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes, when a person is caught in the wrong, it will make that person angry. What were they trying to do to Jesus? Did that stop Him from ministry? What about you? Keep at the task of winning people to God’s Kingdom.
