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 (NIV)
We all need time alone with God, yet the busyness of life can so often keep us from spending quality time with God. Jesus went off to a solitary place, not because he was anti-social, but because he knew that in the solitary place there would be less distractions.
Have you been making a conscious effort to be alone with God? Where is your solitary place? Discovering that solitary place can encourage you to pray and to keep in touch with God.
