23他解散了群众,就独自上山去祷告。到了晚上,他还是独自一人在那里。
23And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
23 Verse 23. He went up into a mountain apart, to pray] He whom

God has employed in a work of mercy had need to return, by prayer,

as speedily, to his Maker, as he can, lest he should be tempted to

value himself on account of that in which he has no merit-for the

good that is done upon earth, the Lord doth it alone. Some make

this part of our Lord's conduct emblematic of the spirit and

practice of prayer, and observe that the proper dispositions and

circumstances for praying well are: 1. Retirement from the world.

2. Elevation of the heart to God. 3. Solitude. 4. The silence

and quiet of the night. It Is certain that in this also Christ

has left us an example that we should follow his steps.

Retirement from the world is often a means of animating,

supporting, and spiritualizing prayer. Other society should be

shut out, when a soul comes to converse with God.
