Prayer was the greatest tool Jesus used to change the lives of others.
We have to understand this! Jesus spent hours communicating with His Father in prayer so that He could accomplish the Father’s will every single day. See Luke 6:12. After His prayers times, Jesus could say, “I only do the things I see my Father doing (John 5:19).”
In the end, prayer was the time Jesus spent in close communication with the Father. Through that time of fellowship, Jesus was given both the knowledge and the power to do what His Father wanted Him to do on earth. To forgive, to heal, to comfort, to feed, to set free–Jesus accomplished all these things as a result of His time of prayer.
