QTVOTD: If Jesus Needed Quiet Places to Pray, Don’t We?

And when daybreak came, He left [Peter’s house] and went into an isolated [desert] place. And the people looked for Him until they came up to Him and tried to prevent Him from leaving them.  Luke 4:42[AMP]

Lately I have been stealing away from work or the hustle bustle of home life to pray. Most of the time it is over my PrayerMate list, sometimes it’s on my own need for God’s mercy and grace, others it on whatever God lays on my heart.

Luke doesn’t tell us that the Lord went into an isolated place to pray but we know that He was likely praying because this same recollection is recorded by Mark and he wrote that Christ did this to pray.

Jesus does this many times during His ministry and it is important to see that the removal of distractions for Jesus was super necessary. Doing this 1 or 2 times per day has helped me immensely in connecting with God on this important level.
