Sweet Hour Of Prayer.

Key Verse

“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.” Mark 1:35

Text — Mark 1:35-42


Prayer is the means by which friends of Jesus talk to God and have fellowship with Him. From our text, we saw that Jesus spends quality time very early in the morning to pray.

Prayer should be part of your daily life anywhere you find yourself. John Bryan was a boy that loves prayer and makes it a duty to wake up very early in the morning daily to pray for hours. He became so addicted to prayer that his mother nicknamed him “the praying John.” His life was a perfect example for other children to follow, no wonder he excelled in every area of his life.

The question is, are you like the praying John? Or you are the type that loves to sleep a lot and will not wake up in the morning to pray. Prayer is the master key and without prayer, you cannot get victory in life. If you have not been spending time to pray, develop the habit from today and begin to experience God’s wonder in your life.
