Find a quiet place and read from Proverbial Thought.

But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Luke 5:16

25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”

26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.

28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

29 He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.[a]” [“by prayer and fasting”]
Mark 9:25-29

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Matthew 6:6

lonely places

 

we often ask for more
we seek the power of Christ
but are we seeking from the floor
do we find lonely places

we want our God to be proud
we want to serve our King
but are we always somewhere loud
do we go to the lonely places

the disciples could not cast out
demons did not move at the name of Jesus
they asked what that was about
they did not often find lonely places

Jesus was close to the Father
He often went somewhere to pray
why did He always have the power
He often would go to lonely places

how can we have the power of Christ
and move in His Holy Spirit
we need to have a lot of prayer time
and go off to lonely places
