Pocket Sized Thoughts – Prayer – Part 3

Pray without ceasing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

At first, this may seem like a discouragement to prayer as who among us prays 24/7? However, this is not an instruction to pray consciously all the time. Instead, it is an exhortation to pray, to keep on praying and not give up. Neither does it mean to endlessly repeat words, or formulas; the heathen (unbelievers) do that, Jesus said (Matthew 6:7). It means that we are to ever conscious that there is a God who hears, loves and cares. We can continually, without ceasing, lift our hearts to Him, knowing that He will never grow weary of our dependency upon Him.

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you that we can always come to you & you never turn us away.”
