Mark 1:35 says, “Jesus went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.”
This dialogue must have been common among His friends:
Has anyone seen Jesus?
Oh, you know. He’s up to the same thing.
Yep. He’s been gone since sunrise.
Jesus would even disappear for an entire night of prayer. Prayer for most of us, isn’t a matter of a month-long retreat or even an hour of meditation. It’s a conversation with God driving to work, or waiting for an appointment. God will teach you to pray. We speak, He listens. He speaks, we listen. It’s prayer in its purest form. God changes His people through such moments.
Here’s my challenge for you! Every day for four weeks, pray four minutes. Then get ready to connect with God like never before!
