Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Mark 1:35
This verse is one of the many scriptures where Jesus goes away to be alone in prayer. Prayer is one of those interesting concepts. There are times when we should pray together and there are times we should pray alone.
Our corporate prayer, such as the Prayers of the People during worship are important times that we join together praising God and asking for God’s intercessions. That prayer time is a special time we are connected in our godly communication.
Then there is the personal time that we must spend with God. We need those moments to get away from all distractions including other people. This prayer time allows us to truly be with God and allows God to show us His will for our lives.
And, unfortunately, many of us get so “busy” doing things that we sometimes miss out on this prayer time.
As you begin this new week, find a few moments to get away. Turn off the phone, tune out of the world and seek God in prayer. Allow God to speak to you and experience God’s presence.
