Help me pray (Luke 5:16)

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

God, we see time and time again that Jesus withdrew from crowds to pray.

He knew he needed to turn to you
                For refreshment
                For help
                For patience
                For grace

Help me to long to withdraw and pray
                To not be so busy that there is no time to withdraw
                To not fear solitude with you, and the thoughts that it brings.

Help me to withdraw and pray
                For mercy
                For grace
                For sustenance
                For patience
                For help
                For refreshment
                To seek you, fully and wholeheartedly
                To praise you
                To worship you

Amen
