Read Mark 1:21-35
Mark 1:35 - "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."
What about you? Does your schedule determine your prayer life, or does your prayer life determine your schedule? Do you sometimes think you're too busy to pray - or too busy not to pray? Who sets your priorities? Jesus depended completely on the Father for direction (see John 5:19-20,30). On whom do you depend? If he, the sinless Son of God, found it necessary to be diligent in prayer, how much more should you and I? Make communion with your Father in heaven the first thing you do each day.
PRAYER: "Jesus, sometimes I am pulled this way and that, from daylight to dusk. There are so many voices asking, inviting, demanding and pleading for my attention. Clear my mind, focus my thoughts and order the priorities, for the sake of Your kingdom. Amen."
