As a disciple of Messiah, I am obligated to be like Him. He said,"
A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher. Luke 6:40
I pray regularly from an Orthodox Siddur. The vast majority of the prayers therein are ancient in origin, and many of the same ones that Messiah prayed in the First Century.
Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour... Acts 3:1
Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. Acts 10:9b
So Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house... Acts 10:30
The first disciples, likewise found themselves praying not as "Christians" but as Jews.
