    Jesus was praying to the Father, just as the Gospels state.

    He wasn't praying to the NON entity the Holy Spirit, that's for sure.

    To the Father. The Bible makes that perfectly clear.

    Jesus is NOT part of a triune God!  He is not equal to almighty God but rather worships God the Father just as we do as his own words at John 20:17 show;

    '‘I am ascending to MY FATHER and your Father and to MY GOD and your God.’”Obviously, he was praying to his father and God, Jehovah.

    To the Father... Jesus is a distinct and separate human aspect or form of the triune deity that has been revealed to us through the scriptures. The one and only living God is greater than we can and probably will ever comprehend. We use the term "Trinity" to more easily convey the concept.

    That is like asking if you talk to someone, are you talking to their ears or to all the parts of them.  If you are talking to the Father, then you are talking to the triune God.

    It AMAZING that so many adults can't handle a concept that our elementary-school-age children understand.  

    God = Father + Son + Holy Spirit

    God the Son spoke to God the Father.  Got it now?

    Generally, when Jesus prays in the Bible, he addresses those prayers to "Father".

    To God.  I believe the Bible, since it explains that they’re one in purpose, not being.

      Jess, quite correct, the Bible does explain it quite clearly, but sadly, the it goes over the heads of most folk.
