While it was still dark prayer

4.18 am

Mark 1:35”In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.”

Did you observe the words, ‘while it was still dark?’  Shooting out a one-minute prayer before leaving for work is not morning prayer, this kind of prayer demands sacrifice, is anybody listening? Have you experienced this kind of prayer which is powerful?

I set the alarm for 4.20 am which would give me enough time to get ready and sit for my morning prayers at 4.30 am.  Before going to bed the previous night, I checked my alarm  and then drifted off to sleep, the next day morning I suddenly woke up even before the alarm could ring.  I checked the time it was 4.18 am!  God woke me up two minutes earlier! I could feel how anxious and cautious He was for me to get up and pray!  Oh my! His punctuality is spellbinding! The fact that He is awake while I slept like a log is so comforting! Actually, with many projects, decisions and events aligned for me in the coming months, I did have a lot to pray for! A holy fear came over me, and I started praying seriously, I write this piece of article in the afternoon. I’m charged with anointing, after spending lot of time in His presence and Word.  His ways are pristine, perfect, powerful and prevailing!

Unaware and ignorant of God’s desire for His people to pray, many Christians do not know how to communicate with their Savior.  Sad scenario!  Let us learn to pray. Let us set aside time in the morning and night to pray.  Let us be committed in our personal communion with God, how would we know His plans for us, if we do not set aside time to speak with Jesus? Tell me. Gold medalists and mountain climbers commit suicide because they are not able to meet pressures of daily life. Caveat! How else would you confront this daunting, opaque, imposing world if not through powerful prayer?????
