“Solitary Places for Fervent Prayer are Essential for Leadership Decisions”

“And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also He called apostles.…”
