Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/25/15

This week’s scripture is from 1 Thessalonians:

Praying Hands2“… pray without ceasing …”     (1 Thess. 5:17)

Jesus prayed and spoke to God day and night. Often He would withdraw to places to pray alone and be with God. His disciples saw His example and came to Him and asked Him to teach them to pray. Prayer is so important that we are told to pray continually in all circumstances. The scriptures say to rejoice and pray, to give thanks to the Lord and pray, to pray when we are happy, to pray when we are troubled, to pray and make our requests to the Lord, to pray when we need forgiveness, to pray when we need healing, to pray when we need to call upon the Lord, to pray when we need to know what to do and to pray when we don’t know what to do. Ideally, praying should be like breathing to those who belong to the Lord. Let us pray.

May the Lord bless you and fill your mouth with prayer and praises.
