“Pray without Ceasing”

I Thessalonians 5:16

 

A few weeks ago, I was driving through a quite busy part of town and saw several people walking in the street ahead of me. As they approached the corner, all but one went off to the side of the road, leaving the one absorbed in her cellphone almost getting hit by a turning vehicle; cellphone use while walking on a busy street can be hazardous to your health!  Yet St. Paul calls us to pray continually, not like being absorbed in a cellphone but in conversation with God.  Prayer is not something we do; it is a lifestyle we live; a lifestyle of 24-hour connection with God. Prayer could be as short or nearly so as, “pray without ceasing.”  “Thank you Jesus!” “Amazing creation, Lord.” “What a blessing, Lord.” Prayer ought not be distracting but rather attracting us to the grace, mercy, joy, hope, and peace of God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  There are times that our ceaseless prayer comes with no words for the moment, times when our lack of ability to speak; Jesus says “for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that very hour what you ought to say.” (Luke 12:12) Our Lord Jesus Christ never stops connecting with you.  May your life be a never-ending connection with God, wallowing in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ now, even to the end of the age.
