Bible Verse of the Week: Draw Nearer to God...

"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

This verse is a constant reminder to me of the vitality of praying daily. Jesus, tired as He may have been from the previous day, rose early in the morning to begin His day praying privately. That is the model of how faithful we should be concerning prayer. It is unbelievable easy it is to have too many activities occurring to remember to have a time with God. However, God does not ask for us to spend extended periods of time with Him. In fact, throughout the Bible, God never set a length that we are to pray. Even in our busy schedules, we can spare a few minutes to talk to God. I challenge you to set aside a time alone each day during which you seek the Lord. "Draw nearer to God, and He will draw nearer to you." ~Jesselyn
