Tuesday, January 20th

But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. Luke 5:16 NIV

When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get. But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:5-6

Our Scriptures for today clearly point out our need for solitude in the daily practice of prayer. God says to us in Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God." It is in being still before God that we know and experience him in meaningful and helpful ways. It is our need for stillness before God that lies behind the emphasis on solitude in the pursuit of getting prayer right. Most certainly it is in quiet solitude that we can best be still. Being still helps us to be with God and being with God helps us to be still. It is a settling down before God. The more we settle down before God the more we experience his presence and the more we experience his presence the more we settle down before God. We said last week that prayer is how our relationship with God happens. However, without the stillness that comes in the midst of solitude, we will find it quite difficult to get very far in the pursuit of practicing genuine prayer on a daily basis.

Lord, help me find the time and place for solitude that will be mosting fitting for me. Teach me more about being still before you and show me in clear, specific terms what I need to do to overcome those things that interfere with my being still before you. Grant me a time in prayer today that greatly contributes to my becoming one who gets prayer right in terms of solitude and stillnes.
