There is Power in Prayer
“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
Jesus displayed to us the power and importance of prayer. It is easy to be so caught up with life that you neglect times of solitude, individual worship, and prayer. Perhaps you need to redesign your schedule to find time for earnest prayer.
It is vitally important to:
- Seek the Lord before your busy schedule takes over your thoughts.
- Withdraw from noise and demands so you can focus on God.
- Take Jesus’ attitude of regular communion with the Father.
- Reflect on the priorities Jesus had for His life.
- Determine to pray on a more regular basis, not just in times of crisis.
2 Corinthians 10:4 – 5
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Jesus often withdrew to quiet, solitary places to pray. Many things clamor for our attention, and we often run ourselves ragged attending to them. Like Jesus, however, we should take time to withdraw to a quiet and deserted place to pray.
Strength comes from God, and we can only be strengthened by spending time with Him.
How can we pray for you?
