“Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night.”
Luke 6:9 (NLT)
Have you ever wondered what Jesus prayed about all night? Most of us struggle to pray for short amounts of time before our mind wanders off or we don’t know what to say anymore. But for Jesus it was about a relationship. Have you ever stayed up all night with a good friend? Jesus was spending time with His Father. We see this kind of prayer in John 17. Jesus is praying for all those that would follow Him. It was a deeply moving and passionate prayer. It was an intimate conversation with His Father. And Jesus prayed that we would have the same kind of relationship with God the Father that He did. He prayed, “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.” Jesus asked the Father to make it so we would have the same kind of relationship that they had with each other. God has given us the ability to love Him, know Him, converse with Him and listen to Him, just like Jesus did. Isn’t it time that we started to spend more time with God? Why not start today?
Father, I want a deeper relationship with You. I want to know You more, love You more, share with You more and hear more of what You want me to know. Help me do this through the power of Your Holy Spirit I pray.
