Praying Without Ceasing
3/9/2011 10:54:34 AM

My church cringed when they heard youth would travel on our bus. That green monster – notorious for breaking down – had seen better days. Those of us who traveled that bus accepted the fact we would go kaput at least once. Then came Charman. She believed in “praying without ceasing.”
10 Keys to Praying Without Ceasing will reap a windfall if implemented. They are:

• Prepare Your Bodies Physically – Quality rest physically prepares us to pray. Exhaustion robs us of energy and willingness to engage God in conversation.
• Prepare Your Minds Mentally – Think on Godly things. Use personal pronouns and pray the Psalms.
• Prepare Your Hearts Emotionally – Visualize the depth of God’s love. See Ephesians Chapter 1 and meditate on how God has blessed us; Pray prayers with emotion – recognizing that genuine emotions in our prayers come the more we practice at their delivery.
• Prepare Your Soul Spiritually – Remove any trace of sin through confession. Sin will kill, not only attempts at praying without ceasing but praying period.
• Begin Slowly – Start you day by praying every four hours for a week. Move to on the hour for two weeks. Go to every thirty minutes for three weeks; 15 minutes for four weeks.
• Think Spontaneously – Say your prayer while you are walking (with eyes open of course); while you’re driving; while at the doctor’s office, etc.
• Act Courageously – Praying bold prayers yield bold results. Those results motivate us in continuing this prayer journey.
• Request Specifically – Same as acting courageously. Specific prayer request results in specific answers – encouraging to pray more.
• Thank God Profusely – A thankful heart yields more reasons to pray.
• Forgive Slip-Ups – Function under grace by recognizing you will fail. Don’t brow beat yourself but pick yourself up and continue on your journey.
