News about Jesus kept spreading. Large crowds came to listen to him teach and to be healed of their diseases. But Jesus would often go to some place where he could be alone and pray.  Luke 5:15-16

 

Notice this:

what is important?

ministry, healing people, deliverance, people set free, the gospel preached, lives transformed and changed….

yes…

important.  necessary.  required.

BUT Jesus would leave the crowds of people with desperate need and go and be alone and PRAY.

He would leave the ministry and demonstrations of the power of God and go and spend time in prayer alone with God.

PRAYER is not an optional extra, a last resort but a vital connection and relationship and communion with God Almighty!

PRAYER is important.

Jesus would go and pray.

Our personal devotion time, our personal prayer time, our personal time with God is IMPORTANT – NECCESSARY – VITAL – REQUIRED!

Jesus MADE time to pray.  So should we!

That Jesus made time to go and pray, that he stopped ministering and spent time alone iwth God gives PRAYER MIGHTY VALUE.

Do you value your prayer time like Jesus did?
