“Pray constantly.”

I Thessalonians 5:17 HCSB

Years ago I learned the concept of “Pray until you are all prayed up,” meaning to pray until there is nothing left to pray. Yesterday morning I knew something was not right with a person I hold dear. I knew the way we just know deep in our core. My knees hit the ground, and I cried out to God. This was not a pretty, eloquent prayer like Priscilla Shirer prays in movies. This was my own heart-wrenching yelling out to the God I know hears me no matter if I say it all perfectly. Whether I pray specific scriptures over a person or simply call out “help,’ my Creator who formed my inmost being knows every hurt and sees every tear.

I prayed until i was all prayed up…and then I prayed some more. The reward? Peace. Peace like a river washed over me. That deep abiding peace that passes all understanding assured me He would remain with me through whatever is ahead.

Whatever the difficulty you are facing, pray without ceasing. Pray until you are all prayed up… and then pray some more!🚦
