Ongoing Communication



Prayer – “The power of prayer can work wonders, not only in your spiritual life, but also in your physical, practical well-being. Calling out to the Lord can accomplish amazing things.”


Prayer should indeed be an ongoing conversation. As 1 Thessalonians 5:17 encourages us, “Pray without ceasing.”


This verse can seem overwhelming, but it's important to understand that it doesn't imply a formal or structured prayer at all times. Rather, it speaks to maintaining an open dialogue with God, akin to an ongoing conversation that can be picked up at any moment. Just as we might text someone without necessarily saying goodbye, our communication with God remains continuous and accessible, fostering a deeper connection and relationship with Him.


Understanding prayer in this way can make the notion of "never stop praying" less daunting and more of a natural inclination.


Have you ever found yourself repeatedly praying for the same thing, wondering if God will respond?


Consider a situation where you've misplaced something in your home. You know it's there, but despite searching, you haven't found it yet. You persist in looking until eventually, you uncover what you're seeking. The time it takes varies depending on the item.


Similarly, Matthew 7:7 encourages persistence in prayer: “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”

Prayer involves continuous asking, seeking, and knocking until you receive the answer you seek from God.


Prayer serves as our primary mode of communication with God.


His Word emphasizes that He desires to hear from us and indeed answers prayers. It's through prayer that we directly connect with our Creator, and Scripture serves as one channel through which He communicates with us. As we engage in prayer and study His Word, our souls are stirred, and we discover the answers and wisdom we require.


Ephesians 6:18 further underscores the importance of prayer: “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”


Prayer isn't merely about making requests; it's about fostering a relationship with God grounded in faith and trust. While God already knows the desires of our hearts, He delights in hearing from us because it draws us closer to Him, whether we're seeking guidance or offering gratitude.
