Scripture: “Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly]; Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].” – 1Thessalonians 5:17-18 (AMPC).
Meditate: The above Scripture is God’s call for us all to be “unceasing in prayer” and God is not someone who would command us to do something if it isn’t important and beneficial for us. To be unceasing in prayer means to pray constantly, to pray continually, basically to never stop praying! It means no matter whatever the situation we are in, good or bad, happy or sad, WE HAVE TO KEEP ON PRAYING!!!
And what should our prayer include and focus on? “Thank [God] in everything” It means, in the midst of everything, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in, we are to give thanks to God, but why? Because by doing so it reveals we trust Him and it sends a firm message to the enemy that our faith in God will not be shaken. Also, “this is the will of God” for all true Christians (disciples, followers and worshippers of Jesus Christ).
One may ask “Will of God? Why?” Ah… what I’m about to say is so very important to grasp – Only by praying unceasingly can we make and remain in proper contact with the Spirit of God, when this is in place it helps us in hearing Jesus’ voice clearly, Who is “the Revealer and Mediator of that will”!!! In short it means, no matter whatever the circumstance we may find ourselves in, when we pray unceasingly, we get to hear Jesus reveal not only why that situation and the purpose for it, but also what we stand to benefit from it – and may I repeat that this is possible only when we pray “UNCEASINGLY!!!”
Pray you are now able to see how important it is to live a prayerful life – Make your life a prayer by praying unceasingly! Always be cheerful no matter what, and keep giving thanks to God knowing He’s got this, that He’s always in control. This is His perfect plan for us in Christ Jesus. This is the way God wants us who belong to Christ Jesus to live – praying unceasingly! I sincerely pray that from now on you will always remember why it’s so important to “Pray without ceasing!!!” Amen!
When you’re scared – Pray! When you’re anxious – Pray! When you’re confused – Pray!
When you’ re sad – Pray! When you’re lonely – Pray! When you’re happy – Pray!
When you’re overjoyed – Pray! When you’re witnessing – Pray! When you're... pray, pray, pray...
Yes, go on… add your own... but make sure you are doing so.
Also remember, Jesus prayed often – habitually, and He said, “Follow Me” So what are you waiting for – PRAY UNCEASINGLY!!!
