Paul says we should pray without ceasing. But sometimes I find myself not ceasing from life that I forget about God. Call it practical atheism if you will.
Now this doesn’t happen as much as it used to. But it still happens.
I used to think of prayer as a DISCIPLINE that HAD to be worked at.
But really it’s just like the conversational aspect of any relationship. Yes, sometimes I have to work on listening to my wife and communicating. But I don’t WORK on it like it’s a discipline. I don’t need to. I love her and I know she loves me. So why does my prayer life stall occasionally?
Specifically prayer is the conversational part of the most important love relationship in our lives, our love relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
What can your prayer life tell you about your love relationship with God?
