Prayer IS a priority. Luke 5


Luke 5
Jesus begins selecting His disciples and continues to heal the people.

Luke 5.16   "But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray."

Jesus knew He needed time alone with God, His Father, to continue His earthly ministry.  He neither needed a prayer closet/room or a set time of day.  To me, the words 'slip away' mean He escaped the busy-ness of His life to spend time with God.

I need to 'escape' my busy life and put God first.  I know in my heart that the more I am with God, the more I am rested and refreshed for what my day / life brings.

Father... Thank you for this reminder that even Your Son, Jesus, slipped away from His hectic schedule to spend time with You.  Nudge me throughout the day to come into Your presence and rest.  Amen
