If any of us faced a crisis tonight, most of us would pray. What usually drives us to prayer is things such as adversity, desperation and hopelessness.
After Jesus encountered a lot of earthly notoriety in Mark 1, we find that “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).”
Success and recognition drove Jesus to prayer. Let us be wise enough to pray in the good times, not just in turmoil.
