Jesus is a ‘Perfect’ example of our we are to living our lives. While on earth He showed us how to get away from all that is taking place around us, distractions, and spend time with the Father. I’m sure that with His notoriety it was a challenge. Yet, He did it and made it a priority in His life.
Mark 1:35 KJV ‘And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed’.
He did not make it a show for everyone to see but He stole Himself away in order to get to God. He designated an area and prayed unto the Father. He did this before day. According to an article entitled, “The Jewish Day”(1), the Jewish day begins and ends at nightfall. All I can say is WOW…He spent a great deal of time praying, while I struggle with 5 minutes or more. 😦
So I must seek the Father even the more and increase my lifestyle of prayer.
