Day 18: Pray Without Ceasing
September 27, 2018
“Prayer is not an exercise, it is the life.” – Oswald Chambers
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16–18
Do we really believe that prayer changes things? Do we really believe that God intervenes in the affairs of men? If so, then why not pray without ceasing? If prayer is so important to us and to the rest of the world, then why don’t we take every opportunity to pray, to pray empowered by the Holy Spirit at all times?
Progress, not perfection, is what we are looking for. Let’s start by looking at normal, everyday opportunities to pray and then how to build a life of continual prayer from there.
