2015-07-18 - A Solitary Place
Mark 1:35 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.
Jesus was a busy man. He travelled while preaching, teaching, and healing. People flocked to Him, wherever He went. On several occasions, Jesus had so many people approach Him, that He was unable to eat a meal. Jesus frequently withdrew from the crowds to pray. He knew that time spent talking to His Father in Heaven, was important. Jesus made time for prayer.
We, too, live in busy times. Our lives are full. We rush from place to place and from task to task. Just like Jesus, we need to find time to spend with our Father in Heaven. Have you found a solitary place to pray today?
