In the Scriptures, Jesus always listens before He acts. We always encounter Jesus at prayer before He acts on the Father’s will.

Those who seek to understand Jesus must imitate Him first. Do I pray before I act? Do I assess my deeds in light of what God would have me do?

O God, may I be patient with myself today. May I stop and pray before I act. I want to know Jesus; may I imitate Him today.
