Unlimited: We Must Not Cease To Pray

Continue in prayer (Colossians 4:2, NKJV).

It is interesting to remark how large a portion of the Bible is occupied with the subject of prayer… We scarcely open its pages before we read, “Then began men to call upon the name of the Lord;” and just as we are about to close the volume, the “Amen” of an earnest supplication meets our ear…

Here we find a wrestling Jacob; there a Daniel who prayed three times a day; and a David who with all his heart called upon his God. On the mountain we see Elias; in the dungeon, Paul and Silas. We have multitudes of commands, and myriads of promises. What does this teach us, if not the sacred importance and necessity of prayer?

We must not cease to pray. Until we are in heaven we must not cease to pray…

We may be certain that whatever God has made prominent in his Word, he intended to be conspicuous in our lives. If he has said much about prayer, it is because he knows we have much need of it. So deep are our necessities, that until we are in heaven we must not cease to pray…

A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian. – Charles Spurgeon (adapted)

Reflection: Is there someone close to you whom you know should pray more? Why don’t you encourage them in prayer by offering to pray with that person on a regular basis? What a blessing that will be for you as well!
