Pray without Ceasing
In 1st Thessalonians 5:17 Paul tells us to pray without ceasing. How is this possible? As we have looked at this and studied so far it would seem that prayer is more than just an act. It is a lifestyle. It is being in constant communication with our heavenly Father. It is walking in the spirit all day, filled with the Holy Spirit, equipped with the Word of God with our ears tuned in waiting for that still small voice no matter what were doing, whether at work or at play our minds are ready in line with the Lord to pray whether we need something or just giving thanks.
Prayer isn't just words it's also singing praising the Lord. This is something we can do all the time, not necessarily out loud. Have you all of the sudden for no reason at all thought of someone and wondered why would I be thinking of them right now? Is not the Holy Spirit prompting you to pray for them. Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with a burden to pray for someone! I know these are things I've experienced and I'm sure you have too. For myself not having any doctoral foundation for any of this just coming at it from a personal perspective, this is what I believe the apostle Paul meant. I think we are very capable of doing two things at one time. I think it is quite possible to sing songs of praise while working or grocery shopping etc. you know that expression, I can't get that song out of my head. Well what we put in our heads comes out of our mouths. For where our heart is there are also lies our treasure (Luke 12:34) if our hearts and minds are set on the things above then we will be in tune with the Holy Spirit and thus we will be praying without ceasing without realizing it. Without it being a job or a duty rather a pleasure!
