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
Jesus was in the middle of his ministry, He had just come back from forty days being tempted in the desert, He had called his first disciples, He drove out an impure spirit, He was healing people left, right and centre. Jesus was busy. Amidst this busyness, Jesus woke up early and spent time to pray.
As the summer winds down and the busyness of Fall sets up, we are reminded of the importance to spend quality time with God. In our ministry at Toronto City Mission, we are called to serve God first and through him, we can serve others.
Prioritize your days so that God and prayer is on the top of the list.
