1 Thessalonians 5:17
"Pray without ceasing." ESV
How can we pray all the time? We have to do our jobs, do things with our families, and we have to sleep! Prayer is so much more than a few moments of bowing our head and uttering words to God. That is certainly praying and we should be doing that every day. But, continual prayer is a conversation with our constant companion, the Lord Jesus Christ. It may be thoughts, feelings, action, or words. In our hearts we never cease to thank Him, praise Him, seek Him, and need Him. We are in ongoing communion with Him. That put's continual prayer in a different light doesn't it?
Lord, how we thank You that we can come directly to You and talk with You anytime, anywhere. Help us to be aware of our continual prayer of intimacy and fellowship with You. In Your gracious name we pray, Amen.
