Praying Always

Heed the sound of my cry for help, my King and my God, for to You I pray.—PSALM 5:2 NASB

The apostle Paul told us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17 NASB, emphasis added). But often we get so busy and bogged down with everything that needs to be done, it’s hard to even think about prayer. Good luck finding special moments of uninterrupted fellowship with God!

But let’s remember that the work we do in caring for others is a not only a ministry but a fellowship with God—in many ways, a prayer on legs. Whatever we do for the Lord gives Him praise and glory and can be considered a type of prayer. As we work through the day, we may at times cry out to the Lord—but that’s not an interruption, just a continuation, of our day of prayer.

What a joy to live our prayers all day long, praising and glorifying our God with the work we do. What a comfort to know that the Lord is right beside us every step of the way. He’s just waiting for our requests, many times answering before we even think to ask.

As we care for others, we can truly “pray without ceasing.”

Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your hand on my life. Thank You for giving me a ministry that is a constant prayer throughout my day. Help me to remember that You are with me always—without ceasing.
