- On the third day there was a wedding in Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." (John 2: 1-3)
When Mary was in Cana and they started to run out of wine, she approached Jesus and said, "They have no wine."
What can we learn from this?
Before I answer that, I know that Catholics and Protestants differ on our views of Mary (and I really don't want to argue about that) however, I think there's a lesson for all of us in this text. I think one thing that we can all agree on, however, is that Mary knew and loved her Son as any mother knows and loves her son.
When she approaches Him, all she says is, "They have no wine." At that point, Jesus knew exactly what she was asking Him and responded.
This is a great lesson on how we should pray. We really need to keep it simple when we approach Him. Why? Because He already knows what you're going to ask and He knows what you want. The words just get in the way.
We don't need long wordy prayers to God. Just nice short simple ones. If your child is sick, in prayer, just say, "Lord, my child is sick."
He knows what you want and will answer your prayer.
