jesus-and-prayerYet Jesus himself frequently withdrew to the wilderness and prayed. – Luke 5:16

Here is the Son of God, God himself in human form—and he would frequently withdraw to the wilderness to pray.

In prayer, He was communing with His Father. Jesus knew how to hear His Father’s voice and to have two-way communication. That is what prayer is supposed to be. If a person does not know how to hear God’s voice then the conversation will be very one sided. Communion involves two people dialoging.

Jesus was teaching us all. He was our example. Learn to listen to the Father’s voice. Learn to ask Him questions, expect answers, and listen to what He tells you. You can’t help but make it a frequent part of your life once you learn to COMMUNE WITH THE FATHER.

What would it take to get you to withdraw to a quiet place and pray? Do you need it less than Jesus did? Do you value it less than He did?
