“Pray without ceasing.”
~ I Thessalonians 5:17
Every minute, every hour is a chance to pray. Our whole day can be a day of constant prayer.
We can turn every chore into a time of prayer…
As we wash dishes, we can pray for each child that ate off of that plate or drank out of that cup. As we fold laundry we can utter prayer for the person who owns the shirt we’re folding.
Every time we have a thought of someone, we can pray for them. Every time we pass someone at church, we can whisper in our heart a blessing of prayer for them.
Every worry can be turned into a prayer.
Every stressful situation can be tackled with a fresh load of prayers.
Pray without ceasing!
Challenge yourself to see how many times you can pray each day. Find new ways to use your minute at hand to pray.
Habits are established by continual effort. When we pray constantly, we create a very close relationship with our Heavenly Father
…. after all, we’re chatting with Him all day long!
Consider the words written by Fanny J. Crosby in “Savior, More than Life to Me”…
Every day, every hour,
Let me feel Thy cleansing pow’r;
May Thy tender love to me
Bind me closer, closer, Lord to Thee.]]>
