Luke: All too often we take so much for granted. The night before he chose his 12 Apostles (read missionaries). Jesus spent in prayer – all night. Arthur Rod has had a few of these evenings of prayer with few in attendance (if that’s a measure of “success”). His efforts are heroic and should serve to remind us just how important prayer is. As stated above, Jesus applied Himself to it all night. The next time we see Jesus as devout in prayer is the night before He died.
