“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
Some of God’s children are just too busy. Even if you are extremely busy in the service of the Lord but are not supported by the power of faithful prayer while you work, you run the risk of a complete breakdown and burnout of your spiritual life. You cannot fulfill your spiritual duty without prayer.
Prayer is the encouragement and inspiration for Christian service. It gives sincerity to everything that you embark on in the Master’s name and gives you a deep satisfaction that you cannot get from any other source.
Father, through your favour, may I experience more comfort in times of adversity, more sorrow over sin, more joy in my labours. May I be inspired by prayer and pursue your example diligently. Amen.
