This short verse in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 is one that we may want to argue with… but I’m busy, I have work to do, I can’t pray ALL the time!
It’s easier to understand when we think in terms of relationship, of communication. It’s like not turning off your prayer “cell phone”, keeping an open link to God at all times. John 15:7 tells us to abide in Him. Don’t ever get so far from God that there is “no service”.
Prayer: Lord, help me to keep the communication line with you open at all times, to talk to You about everything and to hear what You want to say to me.
