Praying without Ceasing

For me, to pray without ceasing means to constantly have a dialogue with God. Like a long list of movie credits scrolling across the silver screen are the words that light up the tablet of my heart. For me, praying constantly is almost like praying obsessively.

But there are two parts to prayer that we sometimes miss. The first is our side of the conversation. The second is God's. For me, to pray without ceasing also means to pray while listening.

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."
-1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
