Pray Without Ceasing

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
      1 THESSALONIANS 5:17,18

      AS Thou, Lord, an immortal soul
      Hast breathed into me,
      So let my soul be breathing forth
      Immortal thanks to Thee.

      LET us not be content to pray morning and evening, but let us live in prayer all day long. Let this prayer, this life of love, which means death to self, spread out from our seasons of prayer, as from a centre, over all that we have to do. All should become prayer, that is, a loving consciousness of God's presence, whether it be social intercourse or business. Such a course as this will ensure you a profound peace.

      How are we to fulfil our Lord's injunction, "that men ought always to pray, and not to faint"? By the heart's prayer, which consists in a constant habitual love of God, trusting, Him, submitting in all things to His will; and by giving a never failing heed to His voice, as heard within the conscience.
