“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV
Nothing distinguishes the children of God so clearly and strongly as prayer. It is the most infallible mark and test of being a Christian. But even the Christian has to cultivate continual prayer. You must be habitual, but it must be much more than just a habit.
It is a duty, one that rises far above the ordinary implications of the term. It is the expression of a relationship with God, a yearning for divine communion.
It is the flow of the soul toward its original fountain. It is a statement of the souls origin, the claiming of Sonship that links man to the eternal.
Almighty God, I want to be distinguished as your child. My soul yearns to come into your presence every day.
Amen and Amen!
