Prayer Is Power

“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” – Mark 1:35

Jesus displayed to us the power and importance of prayer. It is easy to be so caught up with ministry and life that you neglect times of solitude, individual worship, and prayer. Perhaps you need to redesign your schedule to find time for earnest prayer.

It is vitally important to:

  1. Seek the Lord before your busy schedule takes over your thoughts.
  2. Withdraw from noise and demands so you can focus on God.
  3. Take Jesus’ attitude of regular communion with the Father.
  4. Reflect on the priorities Jesus had for His life.
  5. Determine to pray on a more regular basis, not just in times of crisis.

2 Corinthians 10:4 – 5

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

Jesus often withdrew to quiet, solitary places to pray. Many things clamor for our attention, and we often run ourselves ragged attending to them. Like Jesus, however, we should take time to withdraw to a quiet and deserted place to pray.

Strength comes from God, and we can only be strengthened by spending time with Him.
