Pray Without Ceasing


I Thessalonians 5:17

Pray without Ceasing

I am convinced there is no higher calling than prayer.

Than a life saturated in prayer.

To converse with our Maker at all times.

Above all, pray.

For this is the way to union with God, more than anything else.

How can we pray constantly?

What does that look like?

One way, which has been tried and found true for more than sixteen centuries now, is what some refer to as “Repetitive Prayer” or “Breath Prayer.”

You pray a word or phrase from Scripture over and over, forming a habit and making it part of your very breathing, your very being.

Here are two of the earliest and most common:

“O God, come to my assistance. Make haste to help me.”


“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.”

You can very easily pray these 500 times a day (I’ve done the math-not difficult at all) to start forming and reforming your mind to be one with God.

You’ll be amazed at what praying these from the heart every moment you think of it will do to you and the world around you.

There’s also a great prayer in the new Star Wars movie Rogue One.
