A Realistic Perspective

We won’t live here, on earth, forever. Remember that as you pray.

Remind God: “Remember how short my time is (Psalm 89:47).”

Ask: “O Lord, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am (Psalm 39:4).”

A proper perspective on time makes pain more bearable and influence more intentional.

24 hours in the life of Jesus

One Sabbath day, Jesus went to the temple. He taught with authority and ordered an evil spirit to leave a man. Then He visited Simon’s house, where He healed Simon’s mother-in-law, who then prepared a meal. After sunset, many sick and demon-possessed where brought to Jesus. The whole town watched as He healed them. Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went to an isolated place to pray (form Mark 1:21-35).

Those who serve others need time to be alone with God.
