Pray Without Ceasing

"praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints." (Ephesians 6:18 NKJV) We ought to pray in all circumstances, all situations, no matter what is going on...bad OR good. We also need to stay alert as there are people and things all around us that could distract us from concentrating on serving God the way we should. God wants us to stay focused on Him, and not the ways of the world. Prayer is a way of communicating with God, and He wants us to constantly be in contact with Him so He can help us and lead us. Prayer can even be a way of expressing our thanksgiving and praise to God, and for things. God loves us and wants us to share with Him what's going on in our world and how we feel about it. He also wants us to be mindful of one another, and praying for one another's needs and wants. I don't know about you, but I can never have enough prayers! Prayer is a powerful force, and it DOES change things for the better. Everywhere we look around us there are people and things we can pray about and for, so "pray without ceasing." Love, Beau
