Day 39 – Pray to be in constant Prayer
Give thanks in everything,
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 tells us to rejoice and pray constantly.
Now how in the world can we do that? We have to work, go to school, go to church, eat and sleep. How can I skip those things to be in prayer you say?
Well you don’t skip them. The idea is to constantly be asking God for guidance in all that we do. When I go to work or work is there someone He needs me to talk to? Do I give thanks when I eat? When I decide to go for a walk or watch TV, what does God want us to do in those situations?
I don’t think Paul intended us to do nothing but pray, but to pray in all things we do.
My Prayer for Today
Lord help me to be reminded constantly that You provide all I do and all I have. Help me to remember to first listen to your guidance before I act today. In the name of Jesus I pray.
