Jason Byassee, Vancouver School of Theology professor, spoke on three models of prayer: bargaining (Abraham’s pleadings to spare Sodom in Gen 18:20-32), the Lord’s Prayer (Luke 11:1-4), and persistence (like the friend at night in Luke 11:5-13). What if we prayed with the boldness of Abraham in our appeals to God? The concise version of Jesus’ subversive prayer pattern in Luke reminds us to rely on God for our collective sufficiency. What can we accomplish together for God’s Kingdom if we are no longer afraid to ask God for what we all need (and not just what each of us wants)? [KH]
