Importance of prayer in our lives

In Matthew 17:1-13 (also Mark 9:2-13 and Luke 9:28-36) Jesus and the disciples went up on the mountain to pray. At that moment Jesus was transformed before the eyes of the disciples and was accompanied by Moses and Elijah. Jesus had not long before this shared with his disciples that he would soon have to die. The important thing to remember is that, before the transfiguration took place, Jesus made it a point to get away from the crowds and pray. We cannot begin to know how God is working in our life if we are not consistently praying. Even Jesus looked to His heavenly Father for guidance and encouragement. Shouldn’t we do the same?
