Keeping this in view, what Martin Luther said about prayer?

Christ prays, “My father, if it is possible, so take this cup from me, but not my will, rather your will be done.” This, declared Luther, is the proper form of prayer in times of temptation and misery. Despite the fact that we see only God's anger and death, we still see him as our Father who loves us and protects us.
