Mark 1:35 says, “Jesus went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.” This dialogue must have been common among His friends:
“Has anyone seen Jesus?”
“Oh, you know. He’s up to the same thing.”
“Yep. He’s been gone since sunrise.”
Jesus would even disappear for an entire night of prayer. Prayer for most of us isn’t a matter of a month-long retreat or even an hour of meditation. It’s a conversation with God while driving to work or waiting for an appointment.
God will teach you to pray. We speak, He listens. He speaks, we listen. This is prayer in its purest form. God changes His people through such moments. May I challenge you? Every day for four weeks, pray four minutes. Then, get ready to connect with God like never before!
