Andrew Murray on Praying Without Ceasing

“Who can do this? How can one do it who is surrounded by the cares of daily life? How can a mother love her child without ceasing? How can the eyelid without ceasing hold itself ready to protect the eye? How can I breathe and feel and hear without ceasing? Because all these are the functions of a healthy, natural life. And so, if the spiritual life be healthy, under the full power of the Holy Spirit, praying without ceasing will be natural.” Andrew Murray

    My prayer life has changed a lot in the past few years. I still set aside time for meditation, and a time of more concentrated prayer but more and more I find myself praying what my friend calls, breath prayers. In those prayers, I don’t request or inquire or beseech. I simply bring the individual before the Lord. Period. He knows the need. I’m trying (not always successfully) to do that every time someone comes to mind and especially when and I’m inclined to worry or fix or feel badly. I look forward to your series. Thanks for encouraging me to pray without ceasing.

    Prayer is just an ongoing conversation — with full attention on your partner — who is the Lord, your God and Savior, Healer and Coming King. He deserves and demands your listening ear, not just your talking mouth. 😀

      Perfectly said Carley. Thanks. Our Church, for the month of August, is placing an enhanced emphasis on prayer. I thought I would spend a few minutes each day reading from some of the great heroes of our faith, and their position on prayer. You’ll probably see posts from me that reflect my convictions in their writings most of this week. God Bless
