Today’s reading: Colossians 4:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Paul was certainly a prayer warrior. He understood and had experienced firsthand the power of prayer. So as he comes to the close of his letter to the church in Colossae, he instructs them to:

“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving” (vs. 2).

He delivered a similar instruction in a letter to the church in Thessalonica:

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18).

Nothing has changed over the centuries. Prayer is a vital part of our relationship with God, who wants to talk with us. What an incredible privilege it is to be able to openly converse with our Maker anytime and anywhere.

How often do you talk with God? What hinders you from praying, or praying more often? What are some of the benefits of praying regularly and frequently (praying without ceasing)? Tami
