Pray Continually

Wow! It was exciting to see God move yesterday (Sunday) in our service. I know I was deeply moved, and I believe
many of you were as well. Remember, though, that prayer is not a one time, one day event. The Bible
commands us to “pray continually” (1 Thess. 5:17). Prayer is not limited to a service, a church, or even a day of
the week. God wants to connect with us every moment of every day.

Setting aside a time each day to pray is a fantastic practice. Jesus did this. “Very early in the morning, while it
was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed,” (Mark 1:35). If
you don’t have a regular appointment to meet with God, I would encourage you to do so. Yet, even if you do
have a regular time to pray, our prayers should not be limited to one time. God desires us to be in continual
communion with Him. Imagine Jesus walking with you through your day because He actually is! When we live
with that constant sense of God’s presence, communicating with him becomes second nature. God desires us to
pray continually. Will you commit to doing so this week?
