Abstract

Prayer in the life of Jesus according to the Lucan Gospel

Prayer materials in Luke’s Gospel are rich and unique. In this article passages related to Jesus’ prayer life are explored. According to Luke, Jesus’ prayer life is aligned with salvation history. Jesus’ prayers are solemn acts to focus his life on the will of God and to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore Jesus’ prayers are constantly associated with the cross, by which salvation history reaches its culmination and the Kingdom of God is established. As Jesus prepared his way through prayer, so his disciples are to pray during the period after his resurrection and ascension in their awaiting of the parousia.
