Pray continually

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances, for this God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

(1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18)

We are living in challenging days. In such times, there are days when we know that we need to pray. Those are days when we find it hard to pray – days when we cannot find the words to pray – days when we find it hard to rejoice or give thanks – days when we learn what it means to feel a burden to pray continually. Today is such a day.

Today we are all praying. It is a day when it is difficult to pray. Difficult to find the words. 

The days when we don’t know how to pray are the days when we need to be praying together. Today is such a day.
