And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed
- Mark 1:35

The reason why many fail in battle is because they wait until the hour of battle. The reason why others succeed is because they have gained their victory on their knees long before the battle came,” wrote R. A. Torrey. Prayer is the most spiritual exercise in this life! It is the means by which a person may ascend into the supernatural realm, tap into the Almighty power - God by faith and achieve humanly impossible feats. 

Numerous testimonies in Bible attest to this fact (James 5:17-18; I Chronicles 4:10; II Samuel 15:31; Luke 18:1-5) The preeminence of prayer requires that it be accorded top priority in the life of every wise person. Care should therefore be taken to plan for prayer as the most important activity of our everyday life. Like Jesus Christ, we must plan to avoid distractions – physical, or mental – during prayer. Identifying the most serene environment, mapping out the scripture to study and determination to keep focused despite all odds, are some of the components of an effective prayer plan. 

Challenge: Failing to plan is planning to fail.
Prayer: O Lord, help me to plan well for prayer.
Quote: Like Jesus Christ, we must plan to avoid distractions
