“For most of us the prayer in Gethsemane is the only model. Removing mountains can wait.”

C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcom: Chiefly on Prayer

“Abba, Father,” he said,

“everything is possible for you.”

“Take this cup from me.”

“Yet not what I will, but what you will.”

Abba and imma – daddy and mommy – are the first words Jewish children learn to speak. And abba is so personal, so familiar a term that no one ever dared to use it in address to the great God of the universe – no one until Jesus. Professor Joachim Jeremias declares: “There is not a single example of the use of abba … as an address to God in the whole of Jewish literature.”

Richard Foster, Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home
