Contemplative Prayer

Luke 5:15-16
The report about him spread all the more, and great crowds assembled to listen to him and to be cured of their ailments, but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.

Jesus modeled how to live our lives. He took loving action with compassion for those in need…but he also took time to “withdraw to deserted places to pray.” He needed this balance between action and contemplation. He needed to cultivate an interior stillness before He could be effective in the chaos of the world. Jesus regularly set aside time to be with God in a quiet, peaceful place. Do you?
