Pray without ceasing
1 Thessalonians 5:17 ESV
The people used by God the most, are true born-again men and women whose lives are marked by prayer.
Let us imitate our Lord's prayer life. Jesus was constantly communing with the Father during His earthly ministry. Since we are to follow the footsteps of our Master, we must ask ourselves: am I continually praying like the Christ?
If the sinless and perfect Son of God passed an entire night in prayer to make an important decision (Luke 6:12-13), how much more shall we? If the only God-man, that walked this earth, scheduled in prayer regardless of circumstances (Mark 1:35), how much more shall we? We must not think we are wiser or stronger than Jesus Christ by living prayerless lives or lives of little prayer.
Let us renew our prayer life. Let us pray for strength to pray.
Let us pray without ceasing.
