The next day Luke 9:37
Story: Once Jesus took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus.
The next day, when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met him. A man in the crowd called out, “Teacher, I beg you to look at my son, for he is severely demon possessed. I begged your disciples to drive it out, but they could not. But Jesus rebuked the impure spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father.
Lesson: Jesus used to spend time in pray in solitary places. We go for vacations, do we take a break from busy life and go to a place just to pray. Dedicated pray brings down the glory of God. One day Jesus and 3 disciples went into the mountain they only came back next day, so whole day took a break from busy ministry just to prayer. In the book of Mark it clearly states rest of the disciples who were down could not drive out the demon due to lack of prayer. How is our prayer life?
Prayer: Father Lord; help us to take break from our busy schedule and go to places to pray. Help us to be disciplined to have a consistent and regular prayer life. Amen.
