Jesus loved to go up on the mountain to engage in Prayer such as this.

Nine references from the Gospels paint this picture.
  • Jesus went by Himself to 'deserted places', 'solitary places', 'up on mountains', 'the wilderness', to pray - sometimes 'all night'.
  • Sometimes He called others to join Him, 'on mountains', to 'deserted places to rest', or 'to be alone' with them.
  • Sometimes they joined Him while He was praying.
