Pray without Ceasing

Our success in the Christian life relates to our constant communication with the Lord in prayer. Paul exhorted the Thessalonians, “Pray without ceasing” (I Thess. 5:18). The command to pray comes with an emphasis on continuation. As you go through your day, pray regularly. We should pray every day as part of time of our devotion time with the Lord. Based on the instruction Jesus gave in Matthew 6, the principles of the Model Prayer should be our guide. But as you move through the day, continue to pray. Let me give you a couple of instances: you can pray regarding your circumstances, and you can pray regarding any temptations.

In terms of your circumstances, include the Lord in what you go through. If you are coming into an important or even a difficult situation, ask the Lord for wisdom, strength, and grace. When the Lord brings you through, be sure to thank and praise Him. This is praying without ceasing.

In terms of temptations, pray for the Lord’s grace to help you resist the temptation. Some of our temptations come from traits or patterns in our lives that need corrected. These old ways can be extremely difficult for us and deep-rooted. Ask the Lord for help, and then think on related Scripture verses. Praying will help you gain victory in the time of temptation.
