Pray without ceasing. —1 Thessalonians 5:17
Prayer is our communication link with God. Open, constant communication with Him keeps us within calling distance. When we neglect our prayer life, we experience a major breakdown in communication from headquarters. Then we can’t receive orders from our Commander-in-Chief.
When that line of communication is down, our spirit man cannot receive direction from God. We become vulnerable to the enemy and are subsequently motivated by our flesh instead of our spirit. Our ears become deafened to the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit, and the whispered lies from the enemy begin to sound believable.
When you pray, you have access into the spirit realm where God is; and He will reveal to you the root cause of any battle you are facing.
Prayer in private equals power in public. Battles are won in your prayer closet on your face before God interceding in prayer, seeking His wisdom and receiving His direction.
Teach me, Lord, how to pray without ceasing in both
my private and public moments. Help me to keep my
mind and heart continually communicating
with You. Amen.
