We are told in scripture to pray without ceasing.

How is that possible?” you ask.

Well, when I think about it, I believe it means we are to talk to God using words at various times and talk to Him in thought throughout each minute of the day every day. The scripture commands us to:

“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV)

We are commanded here to make prayers to God continuously. The Greek word translated “without ceasing” is used only 4 times in the Greek concordance of the King James Version. It literally means incessantly, assiduously and without intermission. This is non-stop prayer; no breaks!

Look at what Psalm 1:1-2 (KJV) says:

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night."

This man described in the Psalm above takes so much pleasure in the law of the LORD that he meditates in it day and night. This word 'meditate' derives from the Hebrew word HAGAH, which refers to moaning, groaning, uttering, musing, muttering, meditating and imagining. The Psalmist is saying that the man does all these things with the Word of God day and night. Now if this man can do that literally with the Word then we can surely do that with the Word as well! This meditation or reciting the Word is exactly like praying continuously!

Look at what Psalm 63:5-6 (KJV) says:

"My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches."

According to the Hebrew context the Psalmist is saying that his soul is filled and enriched abundantly with the best and most excellent of everything BECAUSE his mouth praises God with joyful speech when he remembers God upon his bed and meditates on Him at night. Here we have that same word 'meditate'. It is because of the meditating or constant repeating of God's Word all the time why the Psalmist's soul is completely satiated or satisfied with excellence.

I believe we are to pray continuously in our minds and in our spirit all day, every day and forever just like the Psalmist meditates. This is in addition to our standard secret prayer and the Holy Spirit secret prayer. Also remember that prayer is like breathing; breathe in by listening to the still small voice of God and breathe out by talking to God in different ways!

I pray God's Abundant Blessings for you!
