I Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing.” God always answers prayer. Every prayer. Oswald Chambers said, “God answers prayer in the best way, not sometimes, but every time.” Perhaps the answer is not seen in the way we want, but it is God’s best. We are to pray expecting God to answer, and He always does. Prayer is not a ritual we are expected to follow, prayer is to be our way of life. Yes, we should set aside a special time to pray each day, but we should continually be sending up spontaneous prayers to God – unplanned, spur-of-the-moment prayers. It should become an immediate thought to instantly pray over everything. “Prayer is to dominate or minds as breathing dominates our body” (Oswald Chambers).
Thought for Today: Pray about everything. God will answer.
