Pray Without Ceasing

I think of prayer as living in continual God-consciousness, in which everything we see and experience becomes a kind of prayer, lived in deep awareness of and surrender to our heavenly Father. Whatever happens, there is a Godward response. To obey this exhortation means that when we are tempted, we bring the temptation before God and ask for His help. When we experience something good and beautiful, we immediately thank the Lord for it. When we see evil around us, we ask God to make it right and to allow us to help remedy the evil, if such involvement is according to His will. When we meet people who do not know Christ, we pray for God to draw them to Himself and to use us as faithful witnesses. When we encounter trouble, we turn to God as our Deliverer. ”

-Lord, Teach Me to Pray, by John MacArthur
