Prayer.

Did Jesus Pray? How many time did Jesus pray?

“In the great events and crowning periods of His life, we find Jesus in prayer…. No man prayed as he prayed. Prayer was the secret of His power, the law of His life, the inspiration of His toil, and the source of His joy, His communion and strength. To Christ Jesus prayer occupied no secondary place, but was a necessity…. Jesus was always a busy man, but never too busy to pray. With Him even God’s work must not crowd out praying. Saving people from sin or suffering must not, even with Christ, be substituted for praying, nor abate in the least the time or the intensity of these holiest of seasons” (E.M. Bounds).
Yes, Jesus was pre-eminently the Man of Prayer, and the Pattern of Prayer. On many different occasions we read of the Lord praying, some of which are listed below. One cannot properly be called a follower of Jesus Christ who does not spend much time in prayer, for He is our Example, that we should follow His steps (1 Peter 2:21).
