Separate 2 Pray

"Those of Israelite descent separated themselves from all foreigners, and they stood and confessed their sins and guilt of their fathers."
Nehemiah 9:2 (HCSB)
For the Israelites to finally get serious, and repent, before God, they had to separate. They had to separate from the foreigners, those who were not of God. They had to separate from the junk of humanity that filled their lives.
Are you prayers getting through to God? Do you desire a closer walk with Him? Maybe you need separation in your life. Separation from people that drag you (and your relationship with Christ) down, separation from the activities that are not God honoring, separation from the busyness of life, separation from distractions.
Sometimes we just need to separate to pray. Separate from everything, so that there is only me and Him.
