1 Thessalonians 5:17

Starting with Prayer

 

Read:

“Pray without ceasing.” I Thessalonians 5:17

 

Reflect:

I have been walking with God most of my life, and I am still learning the importance of not doing anything without praying about it first. The Bible says we are to pray without ceasing. This doesn’t mean we sit around all day, doing nothing except praying. It simply means that we include prayer in everything we do. It is good to remember to pray your way through the day.

Praying is probably the most important part of life preparation. It has been said that every failure happens because of a failure to pray! I suggest you don’t do anything without first praying.

The Bible says that we should acknowledge God in all our ways and He will direct our steps and make them sure (Proverbs 3:6). It’s encouraging to know that we can call on God and He will provide daily guidance and strength.

You become closer to God when you go to Him in prayer all throughout the day. It allows you to fellowship with God, and it opens the door for Him to work in your life, your situation, and the lives of your loved ones.

 

Respond:

God will enable you to do things that will frequently surprise you, if you take Him as your partner in life. But it all begins with prayer. Have you taken God as your partner?
