PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NKJV) 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Yesterday, we looked at two small words that have so much power: “Rejoice Always.”  Today, we are going to look at three words with a lot of power also, and they are: “Pray Without Ceasing.” You might ask, “How can I do this?  How can I have a life of continuous prayer?”

Well, the first thing that we need to get into our minds is that prayer is not just when we are on our knees.  We can pray while we are walking or driving or cooking or hunting.  Prayer is talking with our Heavenly Father.  We can do that anywhere, because God is a Spirit.

John 4:24 says it like this: “God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”  So if God is ever present, then we can talk to Him at any time and in any place.  We can share with Him our victories, and also our tears.

God, like any good earthly father, wants to spend time with us.  The same way we listen to some of the wildest stories from our children, I believe that God our Father wants to share and enjoy us telling Him some of our stories.

So today, take some time to talk to God when you do not usually talk to Him, and see how a fellowship of intimacy will build in your life.

Confession: I declare today that my Heavenly Father enjoys spending time with me, and I enjoy talking with Him.  I am going to pray at times that I did not pray before, and learn how to pray without ceasing.
