Pray without ceasing!

"Ransomed men need no longer pause in fear to enter the Holy of Holies. God wills that we should push on into His Presence and live our whole life there. This is to be known to us in conscious experience. It is more than a doctrine to be held, it is a life to be enjoyed every moment of every day." A.W.Tozer

Prayer is life in Christ. 1 John 5:12
Prayer is being God-conscious - a life lived in the reality of God's presence. Heb. 11:1,6
Prayer is remaining - a life that abides in the enveloping experience of Jesus. John 15:4
Prayer is participating - a life that feeds on the Bread of heaven and is filled with Him. John 6:57
Prayer is communing - a life entwined in dialogue with God. Matthew 17:5
Prayer is reflecting - a life unveiled in the face of God and echoing His glory. 2 Cor. 3:18

Through our faith in Christ, we are reconciled to God. We, therefore, not only have access to God, but are called to live our lives in God's presence all the time. To pray continually is to live in Christ, to be aware of Him, to remain in Him, to draw from Him, to interact with Him and to reflect His very being as we are filled with Him. Prayer is not an occasional spiritual discipline but a continuing spiritual necessity for life. Let us live our lives in Christ. Let us pray!

Pray without ceasing! 1 Thess. 5:17
