Repeatedly the Gospels tell us that Jesus would leave his disciples and go off alone to pray in solitude. Solitude requires separation and seclusion from everything and everyone in our life.  The example Jesus set reminds me that I need to get away by myself from time to time to be alone with God.

Solitude is difficult for me and easy for others. Yet in those times of solitude I have found blessings and renewal. If Jesus the Son of God needed solitude for prayer in order to recharge  his spirit how much more do I require the same kind of spiritual recharging.
