Regular and Customary

Today's reading: Luke 22:39-46

With his crucifixion just hours away, Jesus goes to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray and talk with God the Father. The Books of Matthew, Mark and Luke all record details of this occurrence, but Luke's description tells us that going to Gethsemane to pray was something that was routine or a habit for Jesus. The words "as was his custom" in verse 39 conveyed much, because they highlighted for me not only the importance of prayer, but the importance of regularly talking with God at a regular time and in a regular place about every detail of life.

Do you have an established time and place when you talk with God? Why is this important? Do you talk candidly and openly with God? How does regularly talking with God impact your mindset and attitude as you go about your day? Tami

Setting aside a time in the morning to talk to God has been a part of my life. The evening is a time to pray with my husband and share our praise and concerns to the Lord.
How does talking to God impact my mindset and attitude? I am not sure what you are asking here, Tami,but I know that it gives me courage,strength and hope to know that God is in control of my life and I can trust Him completely.

Tami, as Jesus prayed to His Father in the Garden of Gethsemane,He requested that the cup be removed,then He said "not my will, but yours, be done.” I tried to say this in my prayers too.
He was strengthen by an angel,in His agony He prayed more earnestly.

Thank You,Jesus for doing Your Father's will.
