Daily Practice: Solitude & Silence

Invite God to be with you as you and bless your time together.

At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowds were looking for him; and when they reached him, they wanted to prevent him from leaving them. - Luke 4:42

But now more than ever the word about Jesus spread abroad; many crowds would gather to hear him and to be cured of their diseases. But he would withdraw to deserted places and pray. - Luke 5:15-16

Reflect on the following questions. Feel free to share your answers or just ponder them in your heart.

  1. Why do think Jesus would regularly slip away to "lonely places?" 
  2. What role do you think the regular practice of silence and solitude played in Jesus’ emotional health and spiritual life?
  3. What challenges would Jesus have faced to carve out time to be alone with himself and God? Do you face any similar challenges?
