WITHDRAWING TO PRAY

IT is recorded in the Bible that Christ Jesus sometimes withdrew to a mountain or to some other solitary place in order to commune with God. In Luke we read (6: 12), "It came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God." And in Mark we are told (1:35), "In the morning, rising up a great while before day. he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed."

These periods of aloneness with God and apart from the pressing demands of the people were followed by wonderful healing works or the making of some decision requiring great wisdom and judgment.
