Don't Stop

today's reading.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18    Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

We looked at prayer last week--specifically why God may not answer our prayers--and this week we're staying on the topic of prayer only with a focus on attitudes that make prayer work.

Paul says point blank in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to "pray without ceasing." Three little words, but boy, do they pack a punch.

So take a few minutes today and think about Paul's instruction to "pray without ceasing." What does it tell you about prayer? What does it reveal about our attitude and approach to prayer? What does it show you about God's desire to be in relationship with you? Tami W.
