More than all the other Gospel authors, Luke writes about the prayer life of Jesus. There are 22 references to Jesus’ prayer life in the gospel starting with His baptism (Luke 3:21) to His prayer on the cross that the crucifixion soldiers should be forgiven (Luke 23:34). This evangelist-author was not one of the disciples surrounding Jesus, so he gained his information from interviews with eye-witnesses (Luke 1:1-4). It was as though he asked, ‘What most impressed you about Jesus?’, and got the answer, ‘He was always praying!’
