Reflect: As we are reading the gospels,we’d notice Jesus withdrew from people from time to time so he would have time in solitude and to pray.  If the Son of God needs that time to have one-on-one time with God the Father,what about us? How are you doing with that one-on-one time with God?
Prayer: Ask God to help us commit an one-on-one time with God everyday.
