"Come apart by yourselves into a desert place, and rest awhile." Mark 6:31 "Escape to Pray " is a book that gives insight into the prayer life of Jesus. His prayer life influenced thousands As Jesus dialogued faithfully with the Father, the sick were healed; the bound set free; the dead regained life and those who were lost, believed. This is a phenomenal testimony and model for all believers today.As we live in a fast paced society, we are constantly bombarded with 'issues of life' that distracts our attention. We must therefore press our way into a prayer life that is pleasing to God. This often requires us to escape from our busy, hectic schedules to a quiet, isolated place just to dialogue with our Savior. Prayer then will rejuvenate us, revive and strengthen us as well as influence the lives of others for whom we pray. As Jesus prayer life produced powerful results, the same will happen for us.
