Read: Philippians 4:4-9
When we think about prayer, we face a real temptation to only pray when we have a great need. There is absolutely nothing wrong with praying when in need. In fact, that is exactly what we are supposed to do. But what about the other moments in life when we are not being stared down by a need that seems impossible? What about those mundane moments of your week? Or even the mundane moments of each day? 1 Thessalonians 5:17 could not be any more simple, while also being challenging for us. We are called, in every moment, to pray without ceasing. This does not mean we walk around eyes closed and running into walls as we pray. Rather, this means that in every situation and circumstance, we are dependent on the Lord. Throughout your day, in what may usually be the most “normal” times, see these as opportunities to give thanks, or ask the Lord for help, or seek His wisdom on a decision. Commit today to do nothing apart from Him as you pray without ceasing.
