In those days he departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named apostles.
Jesus often communed with God in silent prayer. The Son of God apparently prayed in very human ways…by being in the quiet Presence of the One He called “Abba.” Before making a big decision…like picking the apostles…Jesus went to the mountain by Himself and “spent the night in prayer to God.” How often do I set aside time to be in the silent Presence of God to listen to the quiet inner voice of our loving Creator? That voice will always have your best interest at heart. It will always treat you as “the beloved.” The God who knitted you in your mother’s womb…wants a close, intimate relationship with you! May we all set aside some silent time to listen for God’s tender voice.
