Prayer is not an Exercise!

The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. The biggest mistake we make is thinking, possibly in biblical days, that it could be done, but never in the twenty-first century. We have hectic lives . How do we make time to pray?

Oswald Chambers wrote that the correct concept is to think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts. Our blood flows and our breathing continues “without ceasing”, we are not even conscious of it, but it never stops. And we are not always conscious of Jesus keeping us in perfect oneness with God, but if we are obeying Him, He always is. Prayer is not an exercise, it is the life of the saint.

Pray without ceasing by maintaining the childlike habit of offering up prayer in your heart to God all of the time. 🙏❤️🙏
