Mark 1:35-38

35In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.

36Simon and his companions searched for Him;

37they found Him, and said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.”

38He said to them, “Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby, so that I may preach there also; for that is what I came for.”

Luke 4:42-44
42When day came, Jesus left and went to a secluded place; and the crowds were searching for Him, and came to Him and tried to keep Him from going away from them.

43But He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.”

44So He kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.
