“Pray continually”. – 1 Thessalonians 5:17
It is difficult to create a pattern of prayer in your life. It is even more difficult to cultivate a sustained prayer life.
The motive behind sustained prayer is to listen to God and to be sensitive to His guidance through the Holy Spirit. In the quiet of your deepest being you will feel His presence and experience His omnipotence. Regardless of where you may find yourself, or what you may busy yourself with, you can lift your heart to God, even for a single moment and in a fleeting thought, and in doing so, experience the reality of His presence.
Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayers of supplication and thanksgiving, and that You bless those who wait on you in prayer. Help me to maintain a childlike trust in You – now and forever. Amen.
