Jesus said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.”
– Mark 6:31.
In our culture, it is tempting to think certain quiet activities are a “waste of time.” But Jesus teaches us there is a time for prayer, a time for rest, a time for getting away from the busyness of ministry and work. Do you see prayer as a “waste of time”? If so, go ahead: give yourself permission to “waste time with God.”
Prayer: God, help me to remember that prayer is about my relationship with you. help me to remember it’s okay to take a deep breath and pray at any time.
