“He Was There Alone”
Sometimes, O God, we really need to be with other people if we are to be who we are and if we are to be doing what you need us to be doing.
But sometimes, O God, we really need to be alone with no one else around except you.
Give us discernment to know which approach is best for the particular time or season of life in which we find ourselves.
Then help us act on the realization to which our discernment leads us.
“And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone…” (Matthew 14:23)
