Passport to Prayer – Lent 2016
Monday – Mar. 7, 2016
Matthew 14:23: After Jesus had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray.
Ministry for Jesus had to be exhausting! All the healings, the teachings, the interaction with so many people. How did Jesus restore himself? Often, he purposely rose early in the morning to be alone with God. By keeping control of his schedule, he didn’t let it control him. How do you keep prayer in your daily activities? Does it work for you? Is prayer a time of refreshment for you? Why or why not? Where is a place you find complete silence and solitude? Try this as a prayer location.
Jesus, your example of time away and alone to pray is mind-boggling. It seems nearly impossible for us find any quiet moments. Instill within me a desire to find quiet moments to be just with you every week. Let “busy-ness” not become an excuse. Amen.
