Topic: Go to the Prayer Mountain

Mark 6:46 (KJV) “And when he had sent them away he departed into a mountain to pray”.

Second text: Luke 6:12 – And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.

Before Jesus walked on the Sea of Galilee, He climbed a mountain to be alone with His father in prayer. He left the demands of crowd at sunset; prayed until dawn, then came down the mountain in the power of God’s Spirit and stilled a raging storm.

Prayer is a mountain you have to climb. “Peter and John went up together at the hour of prayer” (Acts 3:1). If you wait until you feel like it, you will not pray. As a good Christian, you should be hungry to dialogue with God. To effectively communicate with God, you must shun distractions.

Jesus knew the importance of eliminating distraction when He walked away from life’s demands and the crowd. The result of effective prayer was that He was able to still the storm that threatened His disciples. Before you are chocked up with your busy schedules, go to the mountain of prayer and dialogue with the creator.

Prayer is a place of stability in an uncertain world, a place where the view is unobstructed and the frantic pace of life is left behind.

How often do you go to the mountain?

Prayer Point: My Father, my Father, give me the grace to pray more in Jesus Name. Amen.
