“One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.” (NIV)
“During those days He went out to the mountain to pray and spent all night in prayer to God.” (HCSB)
Jesus had an important decision to make, which twelve of His disciples would He call to be apostles (v. 6:13).
And how did Jesus prepare for this important decision? He prayed. He prayed all night to God the father.
How do you prepare for important decisions? Do you give your hopes, dreams and ambitions over to God and pray to Him for guidance when you come to a point of making a choice?
I don’t think I have ever spent a whole night in prayer. Maybe I should! How many decisions have I rushed into in my life? Oh boy, way too many!
Let’s practice giving God all of our decisions and praying to Him for guidance. We must still take action based on all of our other faculties, but we must also go before God and ask for His will and His blessing.
Heavenly Father, thank you for Jesus Christ, our High Priest, who intercedes on our behalf. Because of Him we can be assured that you hear our prayers. Lord, help me to put prayer into greater practice as I make important decisions in my life. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray – Amen.
