Pastor's Message

What would Jesus pray?

This week I spent some time thinking about all of the references to Jesus' prayer life and asking myself, "What did Jesus do, or say, during times of prayer?” We understand that Jesus was a fully human being with the Holy of God as the spirit that was within him. With that understanding, did Jesus simply meditate and pray to himself? Or was there a communion beyond his bodily presence? A communion with a spirit that was within, as well as beyond, somewhere divine and "other”?

The Scriptures lead us to believe that Jesus' spirit was holy but a part of a larger whole and that, in times of prayer, there was a communion and interaction, spirit to spirit. Specific times of prayer reveal that Jesus prayed when there was a big decision to make. The night before he started choosing the disciples, he spent the whole night in prayer. His time might have been a time of focus, a revelation of where to go, or a blessing on the process. Nevertheless, before a big decision, Jesus prayed. Also, when Jesus faced a temptation to shortcut or diminish the responsibility he had been given, he prayed through it.

Special Offering

In June, we collected the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) offering during worship. OGHS makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, poverty, or severe economic hardship. It also assists those who find themselves refugees or displaced within their home countries. These emergency relief resources and funds help address chronic needs through development projects of the American Baptist Churches and its partners. If you could not join us for worship, you may still mail your donation to the church at PO Box 2415, Framingham, MA 01703-2415.
