Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV)
Don't Stop Praying!
I sat and listened quite attentively to the first lady of the church that I attend during a presentation last night. When she heads up one of our weekly prayer meetings, she ensures that she brings a teaching just before we pray, which I believe should encourage us to keep on praying.
One of her first questions to us in the audience was, "What does it mean to pray without ceasing?" The question WOWED me and caused me to think, "WHAT IF WE JUST KEEP ON PRAYING? - IMAGINE HOW OUR GOD WOULD MOVE!"
The Apostle Paul in writing to the church at Thessonalica, gives a powerful piece of advice that we can cling to today. In his God inspired encouragement, he says PRAY WITHOUT CEASING! This means that we are to always be in an attitude of prayer and thanksgiving. We should always be exalting and acknowledging the awesomeness and powerfulness of God Almighty.
Just imagine how much more productive your day will be if you keep up a conversation with your maker ALL-THE-TIME. When things go well throughout the day, you won't forget to thank him. When people upset and offend you, you won't forget to ask him for patience. When you need help, he will be right there to help because you are constantly talking to him.
You will have access to POWER. It'll be right at your fingertips. It will give you a new sense of hope. It will relax and relieve your burdens and stresses. Only Prayer to the Master can do that.
As you go forward, pledge that you will participate in CONSTANT PRAYER as you trust him as Lord and Saviour of your life.
Oh.......what a difference you'll see in your life!
