Matthew 14:22-23

Jesus does something amazing. He feeds 5,000 people from just a negligible amount of food. Then he sends his helpers away, and all of the 5,000 people and goes off by himself to pray. How incredible is that?
Every time that God uses me to do something, I don't immediately go to pray. No, I'd rather sit and think about it, share the news with lots of people, and glory in how I'm suddenly effective. But Jesus wasn't like that. He went off to pray. By himself. The more I study the life and ministry of Jesus, the more I realize how pathetic my prayer life is. JM
