Jesus use of the word "ABBA" as His choice for naming The Father, also, to me, reflects back on Mary, Jesus' mother. "ABBA" is a child's word for "Daddy". Surely it was Mary who taught Jesus to pray. She it was who taught Jesus to call GOD by the name of "ABBA". Jesus use of the word in Gethsemane draws on this purity of intention, and innocence of relationship, that He inherited from Mary as a primal strength.
Mary shows up BEHIND THE SCENES many times...in the Lord's "kitchen parables" as I call them...the pot that's dirty on the outside, but clean on the inside; the bread and yeast; and maybe some others...Mary is there as Jesus' first spiritual teacher.
