How Jesus prays.

"Rising very early before dawn, Jesus left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed."  (Mark 1: 35).

Let us consider Jesus habit of Prayer:

Jesus prays:
#1. At a Sacred Time (Probably 5 am).
#2. In a Sacred Place (Deserted Place).
#3. With a Sacred Intention (Conversing with the Father).

The above 3 habits of Sacred Time, Sacred Place and Sacred Intention are the Best Practice in Christian tradition in Prayer. They are 3 habits of the saints.

Don’t allow anybody to deceive you with the falsehood that you are not a morning person. My good friend who is not a "morning person" works for a multinational company that operates 24 hours. He is always ready to jump out of bed any time they call to go to work.  But if it is to get up early for prayer or Church, you are quickly reminded  that he is not a "morning person".

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."  (Romans  12: 2).
