1.  you are correct in that Jesus prayed to inform Christians about importance of communicating with God. But I think you could also say that he prayed because Jesus was fully man, he prayed because that is what he needed as a man. Remember, the hypostatic union does not negate the full humanity of Christ. I think it is wise to mentioned that.
    2. Also, When we quote a Scripture reference by itself, as though it's a single paragraph, we need to invent it. I will talk to Diane about it and, I hope that we are going to get you guys set up so you can edit your own articles once Diane has put them up.
