Because of this, since the day we heard about you, we haven’t stopped praying for you and asking for you to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will, with all wisdom and spiritual understanding. We’re praying this so that you can live lives that are worthy of the Lord and pleasing to him in every way: by producing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God; by being strengthened through his glorious might so that you endure everything and have patience; and by giving thanks with joy to the Father. He made it so you could take part in the inheritance, in light granted to God’s holy people. He rescued us from the control of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. He set us free through the Son and forgave our sins. (Colossians 1:9-14, CEB)

How often do you pray?

In the opening of this letter to the Colossians, the author states that they and their travel companions have not stopped praying for the members of the gathering there.

Paul told us we should pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). But what does this mean? That we pray all the time?

Yes, that is what Paul means. We are to always be in prayer. Prayer is not something we do with our hands folded and eyes closed, it can be, but it is ultimately conversation with God. We should always be talking to God.

Never stop praying for those around you. That is how we love God and love People.

Loving People. Loving God.
