Very early in the morning, before daylight, Jesus went off to a lonely place where he prayed...Then Jesus answered, "Let us go to the nearby villages so that I may preach there too; for this is why I came"
Jesus shows us the way: prayer first then action. When we pray it clarifies our priority to do just as Jesus did: to preach the kingdom of God. So we need to pray more to save more.
