Never Stop Praying!

In I Thessalonians 5:17 (NLT) we are encouraged to, “Never stop praying”! The problem many of us have is that we mistakenly stop praying after God gave us what we asked for.

Prayer is as important to life as oxygen. If we depend on oxygen to live naturally, we should equally depend on prayer to live spiritually. Our spiritually dependence in prayer should permeate in everything we do! So, even when we are not speaking consciously to God, we should possess a deep, abiding dependence on Him that is woven into the very fabric of our faith.

In short, God has called us to be people of prayer, and regular communication creates intimate fellowship with our Savior. Through our time with Him, we discover His goodness, faithfulness, mercy, grace, and wonderful direction for our lives. We also find the strength and wisdom for every turn on our paths so we can experience all He has created us for.

When we develop a prayerful outlook, eventually our communication with the Lord becomes our first instinct in every situation — not only when we face a challenge or encounter a difficulty. And in time, it will never occur to us not to pray.
