But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Have you withdrawn to a lonely place to pray lately? A place where it is just you and God? Our verse tells us that Jesus withdrew often to this quiet place. When I think of the word withdrew, I get an understanding that Jesus was connected with people all the time, therefore, it was noticeable by his disciples when he withdrew. If praying often and being alone to pray was that important to Jesus, then it should be as important to us. If you haven’t withdrawn and prayed in a while, gotten alone with God, make a commitment today to do so! Consider staying in that lonely, quiet, place and praying for awhile. Could you pray for one solid hour? http://www.prayerforyouth.com/JL/Praying_often_25.html
