"Jesus in prayer" by Alexandre Bida
TO CHEW ON: "Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed." Mark 1:35
We can learn so much about prayer from what we see Jesus do in this one verse.
- "Now in the morning..."
- "... having risen a long while before daylight ..."
- "... He went out and departed to a solitary place;"
- "....and there He prayed."
[Pray: To address prayers to a deity; To make earnest request or entreaty; to address by means of prayers; to ask, earnestly entreat.]
- His prayers made a difference to the day's activity - Mark 1:36-38.
PRAYER: Dear God, please help me to realize the importance of prayer to each day's activities. Help me to view prayer not only as asking, but as a time of needed togetherness with You, when I can receive Your perspective on the day ahead. Amen.
