Just as an example; after seeing Jesus engage in the act of prayer several times, one of his disciples spoke up from the desire that had been building in him. He asked Jesus to teach them how to pray too. (See Luke 11:1).
Jesus didn’t have to beg him to learn and develop a habit of prayer, it was the aroma of Jesus’ prayer life that created in him a hunger for prayer.
Always set the good example people should follow.
God bless you!
