Solitary Prayer and Doing (Prayer Summer)

"Prayer was a central dimension of Jesus' life. All four Gospels portray our Lord as a person of prayer. The centrality of prayer for Jesus is evident in the amount of time that he spent alone in prayer... Jesus' ministry oscillated between engagement and disengagement. He was alternately with the people, teaching and healing, and alone with his heavenly Father for times of prayer."
- Stanley Grenz, Prayer: The Cry for the Kingdom, 15
