H143 - PRAY WITHOUT CEASING - 1 THESSALONIANS 5:17
"Pray continually." - 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Our joy, prayers and thankfulnessæshould not fluctuate with our circumstances or feelings. Obeying these three commands- be joyful, pray continually, and give thanks - often goes against our natural inclinations. When we make a conscious decision to do what God says, however, we will begin to see peopleæin a new perspective. When we do God's will, we will find it easier to be joyful and thankful.
