Withdraw and Pray

Luke 5 vs 16

“But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”

I am so thankful for this example that Jesus sets for us in how we are to live our lives. He intentionally withdrew to places where He could be alone so that He could pray. He intentionally withdrew OFTEN to lonely places so that He could pray.

It is easy to let the busyness of the world remain my excuse for less time spent in prayer but then I think back on to the Psalmist who wrote

Psalm 119 vs 164

“Seven times a day I praise you.”

What a challenge to find seven intentional moments in my day to praise Him, to withdraw and pray.
