praying always

Thoughts for the Day: "pray without ceasing" (1 Thessalonians 5: 17)

"praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints_" (Ephesians 6: 18)

"Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart." (Luke 18: 1)

Jesus said in every circumstance we are to pray and not become discouraged because answers do not come immediately.

"And I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you." (Luke 11: 9)

"rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly (persevere) in prayer." (Romans 12: 12)

"continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant (make it a priority) in it, with thanksgiving;" (Colossians 4: 2)

Prayer: Dear Lord, I pray you will abide with all who earnestly seek your healing touch. May your guiding hand be upon the doctors and surgeons as they engage in procedures that just thinking about makes us cringe. Keep us mindful of your presence at all times. Keep us focused on you and not on what may or may not happen. You are all knowing, all wisdom is yours alone. We will know only when you determine the right time is for us to know. In the interim, I pray you will envelop us with your love, protect us from the harm that comes when we settle on thinking "what if" thoughts. Keep us ever in your word, reminding us that "with God all things are possible." In your precious name I pray. Amen.
