“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances……”
I Thessalonians 5: 16 – 18a
Ok, so we all know how difficult this is to do! There’s not one of us that hasn’t struggled with rejoicing always. And yet God has given us a recipe of sorts on how to accomplish this – by praying continually!
Alright, so does God want us to forget about doing the laundry or going to our jobs, and pray instead? No, what this means is – as we go about our day we can pray here and there as we run into circumstances that are difficult.
And what exactly is a prayer? It is simply words from our hearts, spoken or silently lifted up. You can even pray with your eyes open! I’m serious! It could be as simple as, “Lord I need some help down here!”
Lord God, please help us to pray continually so that we can walk in an attitude of praising you, and rejoicing always! Amen, and hallelujah!
