Don't give up... keep looking? 10/6/14 by Kari Bitz

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and here He prayed.
And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him.  When they found Him, they said to Him, "Everyone is looking for You."
  Mark 1:35-36
 
It's okay to hide away for a while to pray.  It's okay to make the time to pray and allow others to wait or search.  It's okay to prioritize the time with the Father in the still hours of the night and morning.
 
We must prioritize prayer and persist; it rises as incense to the Father in heaven.  He still hears and answers!  He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow-- unchanging.
 
Pray on.  Don't be discouraged… or busy.  Rather, be committed to the discipline that the Son of God committed Himself to.  For fruit comes through it.  
 
Let's pray for boldness and courage to do what is right in our region and nation… and to raise the banner of Jesus high!
 
Pray, fast and obey God… and we will accomplish more by far than without!
Don't give up. We accomplish much when we start on our knees, committed in prayer!
 

In Christ's love,
