Time of Prayer
Bible Reading: Mark 1:29-39
Monday, March 10, 2014
But there was one other important thing that Jesus did. He always took time to pray. Verse 35 tells us, “The next morning Jesus woke up very early. He left the house while it was still dark and went to a place where he could be alone and pray.”
It is fine to pray when other people are around, but sometimes it is good to just be alone with God. That’s what Jesus did.
If you don’t have a special quiet place, you might want to find one. It can be in your bedroom, outside in your yard or in a park. Find a place where you can be alone and share a time of prayer with God. — DJH*
“But when you pray, you should go into your room and close the door. Then pray to your Father. He is there in that private place. He can see what is done in private, and he will reward you.” Matthew 6:6
PRAYER: God, thank You for Jesus’ example about prayer. In His name. Amen.
