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
