OBEY GOD IN PRAYER Just before Jesus chose His twelve apprentices, "Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and He prayed to God all night" [Lk 6:12 NL]. Normally to communicate Jesus' worldview, we share Jesus' words but His actions such as praying "all night", also communicate His worldview. Yes, Jesus encourages us to "KEEP ON ASKING" [Mt 7:7 NL] or to persist but this situation appears to be that Jesus spent a long time in prayer before a major decision. Jesus tells us "I DO EXACTLY WHAT THE FATHER TOLD ME TO DO" [Jn 14:31 IC]. We can speculate, why Jesus prayed all night, but we can be certain, He was being obedient to God. Do you obey God?
