How Did Jesus Pray According to the Bible?

ima1Matthew 26:39 :

“And he (Jesus)went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

  • Matthew 17:6 :

“And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.”

“…and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees.”

Jesus was a Muslim and his religion was Islam in every sense.
