Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father right now and pray.

Here’s today’s prayer suggestion. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you pray through it and make it your own.


Save us from being
self-centered in our prayers,
and teach us
to remember to pray for others.
May we be so bound up in love
with those for whom we pray
that we may feel their needs
as acutely as our own
and intercede for them
with sensitivity
with understanding
and with imagination.

With that in mind, Lord, today I pray for:

We ask these things in Christ’s name.


(Adapted from a prayer by John Calvin)
