Prayer Alone

“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed.”—Mark 1:35.

You might question why Jesus needed to get away from everyone to pray.  Surely He was able to pray while ministering to others.  Surely He prayed “on the go.”  Jesus wanted time alone with His Father.  He used that time to praise, worship and listen to His Father as well as interceded for the ministry and people ahead for His day.  John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist denomination learned that principle.  The busier his day was going to be, the earlier he got up to spend even more time in prayer.  Prayer alone with the Father is where we fill up with His Holy Spirit.  Prayer with the Father is where we can freely express our love for Him and receive His love for us.  Prayer with the Father is when we can be quiet, bask in His Presence and hear what He has to say to us.  Keep praying on the go but be sure to take time every day to draw apart, alone with the Father, to share and experience Him.
