In the story of Peter and Cornelius, prayer is specifically mentioned five times in the following verses:

  1. A devout man and one who feared God with all his household, and gave many alms to the Jewish people and prayed to God continually. – Acts 10:2
  2. And fixing his gaze on him and being much alarmed, he said, “What is it, Lord?” And he said to him, “Your prayers and alms have ascended as a memorial before God. – Acts 10:4
  3. On the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. – Acts 10:9
  4. Cornelius said, “ Four days ago to this hour, I was praying in my house during the ninth hour; and behold a man stood before me in shining garments, – Acts 10:30
  5. And he said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your alms have been remembered before God. – Acts 10:31

Yeshua often spent time alone with the Father. Some examples include:
  • Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus withdrew to a solitary place to be alone with God and pray. – Mark 1: 35
  • Yeshua & His disciples had been in the middle of a busy season, and Yeshua pulled His followers aside, and He said to them, “Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” – Mark 6: 31
  • Before He chose the twelve disciples: He went to a mountain and spent the night in prayer. – Luke 6:12
  • After He fed the 5000, He withdraws to be alone with God. – Mark 6:46
  • He hears the bad news about John the Baptist, He goes away to be alone with God. ¬– Matthew 14:13
  • Feeding the 4000, in the Garden of Gethsemane, and more

Seven elements of THE LORD’S PRAYER:
  1. 1. Our Father in heaven — Get started
  2. 2. Hallowed be thy name — Get focused
  3. 3. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. — Experiencing Divine intervention
  4. 4. Give us this day our daily bread. — Pray for provision
  5. 5. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. — Asking for and giving forgiveness
  6. 6. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. — Creating spiritual protection
  7. 7. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. — All praise and glory to God

THE LORD’S SUPPER is also called the Lord's table, holy communion, cup of blessing and breaking of bread. In the early Church it was known as eucharist or giving of thanks.

Hamotzi (Blessing over bread): Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth. Phonetic Hebrew transliteration: Baruch atah, Adonai eloheinu, melech ha’olam, hamotzi lechem min ha’aretz.

Kiddush (Blessing over wine): Blessed are You, O Lord our God, Ruler of the universe, creator of the fruit of the vine. Phonetic Hebrew transliteration: Baruch atah, Adonai eloheinu, melech ha’olam, borei p’ri hagafen.

Gospel references: Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 14:22-25; John 6:53-59
