Before Jesus began his ministry he took time out and went away to pray on his own and the Bible tells me that at that time the devil came three times to tempt him.  Matthew says Christ took a trip to the desert to be tempted – I believe he took a trip to pray for the ministry that was about to begin.

In the early stages of discipleship the 12 came to their Master with a special request ‘…….teach us how to pray…’  If prayer was not that useful, Christ would have said to the twelve ‘don’t bother about praying’.

Before Jesus was crucified he went away and prayed, not just alone but he took three out of the twelve, which means that we as Christians have a part to pray for our brethren as the disciples had a duty to take part in prayer for their Master who was about to reach the end of his mission on earth.

Have you prayed today?
