Discipleship Matters – Deepening Your Walk with God/Intimacy with God

I KNOW HOW TO SPEND A DAY WITH THE LORD

A STORY:
When I was in the Navy, the local Navigator invited me to go and spend a day with God. I said in my heart, “Wow, that is a long time. What am I going to do for an hour?” He shared with me that as Jesus was busy in ministry and caring for people, he would get away to have special time with God.

DIGGING INTO THE BIBLE:
Mark 1:35

A great while before the day, Jesus went out into the mountain to pray…

What did he do during this time?

DISCUSSION AND DISCOVERY:
1. What does it mean a great while before day?
2. What was the reason for going to the mountain?
3. What are some examples of prayers of Jesus from the Scripture?

NOTE: The Navigators have a tool called How to Spend Extended time in Prayer? You can click the link or look it up directly on the internet or go to the http://www.navigators.org website and look under “Resources”. Then download it and be prepared to discuss with a Coach.
