“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed” Mark 1:35
Prayer is communion with God. Prayer is that act of going into God’s presence to be with the Lord. Prayer is bringing God and His resources into our earthly realities. Prayer is drawing upon divine resources to influence human reality. Prayer is breathing the breath of heaven. Prayer is the master key to everything we have been called to do. Without it our activities are empty, human and lack the breath of heaven. It is temporal and will never last.
In looking at the life of Jesus, I see a man that prays. If there is an aspect of His life that seems so conspicuous to me, it is His prayer life. It was his habitual practice to wake up early in the morning before day to go to a quiet place to pray. Often, he will depart from the people he was ministering to, and go to a quiet place to pray. Many times he spent all the night in prayer. What is this thing called prayer that Jesus loved to do it so often? What is in prayer that is so important that Jesus, the son of God, spent a large portion of his life doing and encouraging his disciples to do? If Jesus being whom He was, needed to spend so much time in prayer, do we not need to spend even much more time than Jesus in prayer?
