How Long Should We Pray?

This is a frequent question asked by many and I think the answer was suggested by Jesus to His disciples in Matthew 26:40.

Matthew 26:40
And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

Matthew 26:41
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Jesus Christ suggested that His disciples  watch with Him one hour and then He follows up by saying, “watch and pray” (Matthew 26:41). So, if the disciples was to watch with Jesus one hour, then they were to pray also for one hour.

The same is applicable to all children of God and disciples of Jesus Christ today.  You may find it difficult to pray for one hour initially, but you can start with fifteen minutes daily and build it up from there.

Do you think otherwise?
