Pray Without Ceasing

Oh boy. I am guilty of this one. I’m a talker. Love to talk. Love to talk via typing. “Gulp!” wrote the blogger.

Matthew 21:22

“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” ~ Matthew 21:22

I do pray and give praise. Often. A parking space~  Praise Jesus! Fruit on sale~ Praise Jesus! All green lights ~ Praise Jesus!

But there is something to be said for silence. For gentle heart murmurings and thanksgiving offered in quiet solitude.

Woman Reading Under a Tree” ~ Annie Gooding Sykes, 1890

This week I am going to try to pray more and talk less.
“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing. in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
