Why Pray Without Ceasing?

Holy hole in the doughnut, Batman! I think I’ve got it!

I would try to incorporate the word epiphany here, but that may be going a little overboard. Not by much though.

One of the many passages of Scripture that seemingly escapes my ability to rationalize is the command to ever be in prayer. Let me explain. I believe the Bible presents our God as sovereign, One whose arm can’t be twisted to submit to the will of men. Yet, Paul declares that men should pray without ceasing. Why? For what gain?

If you’re doubting my take on this topic, or maybe would argue that we gain some merit in our persistent prayer, I would ask you to travel to a site I frequently visit.

Brian, the author at Summathetes, offers his thoughts in a recent post titled, Why Pray Without Ceasing? Many of you are aware of my appreciation for all his work, but this jewel will no doubt find a hammock at Possum’s place.

So hurry! To the Bat Cave! No, not the Bat Cave… to Summathetes.

  4. hahaha Love this post especially the batman and robin picture. You are so right about how we should pray without ceasing. Prayer keeps us in His presence and it also helps to meditate in order to sharpen our discernment. 🙂
