“…rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.”
But probably none so crucial as the fact that Jesus was a man of prayer.
Or should I better say: Jesus IS a man of prayer. Sitting at the right hand of the Father and interceding for you and for me.
How can any one of us believe that we can do anything of value without prayer?
Make a plan. Work hard. Reassess. Work. Work. Work.
Jesus certainly didn’t just work, work, work. He sought the will of his Father and through prayer he discerned what to do next. Why wouldn’t we??
Lord, help me to remember that it’s YOUR strength that I need, not mine.
And it’s YOUR sovereign plan, not mine.
And it’s for YOUR glory, not mine.
