Friday’s Fav Scripture – "Pray Without Ceasing"

“Seven days without prayer makes one weak.” Author unknown

“Pray Without Ceasing” (I Thess. 5:17). It’s a short verse with powerful words that we often neglect. How easy it is to disregard our need to pray continually.

If you’re dealing with stepfamily struggles that seem to have no answers, I suggest you “pray without ceasing.” When we’re in an attitude of prayer, we find peace in the midst of our trial.

As we guide two of our children through the murky waters of young adulthood, I was reminded of our need to pray for them constantly. The words of a Proverbs 31 ministry devotion by Susanne Scheppmann resonated with me:  “Sometimes, no matter how great the parenting, some children flounder in adulthood. They wander into uncharted territory to test their independence. What’s a parent to do then? If the child is of legal age, the best thing a parent can do is to pray.”

A good reminder. Do you agree?
