“And He went a little farther, and fell on His face and prayed.”
How do we pray?
Is it with outstretched hands in the city square much like the Pharisees for all to see? Or our are prayers brought to God in great humbleness when no one can see us?
We must strive to turn our communal worship into a oneon one experience with our creator. While it is importance to enjoy the fruits of community we need not forget the great importance of being alone with out savior.
Spurgeon wrote, “He withdrew even from his three favored disciples. Believer, be much in solitary prayer, especially in times of trial. Family prayer, social prayer, prayer in the Church, will not suffice, these are very precious, but the best beaten spice will smoke in your censer in your private devotions, where no ear hears but God’s”
Remain spiritually tenacious
