The Bible says: “Pray without ceasing.” This verse has confused many people. It does not mean that you are to be praying always but that there should be an atmosphere of prayer around you; that is, you are ever ready to pray. Ephesians 3:20 speaks of two levels you can operate in as far as your prayer life is concerned: “Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” a) Vocalizing prayers and b) Thinking or imagining prayers.
The Holy Spirit introduces prayer thoughts into your mind. And do you know what? You find it easier to think bigger miracles than to ask for it. Some call it day-dreaming but I call it Scripture-dreaming. When you read the book of Psalms, you will get the idea that a continuous conversation that affects the earth is always going on between the Father and the Son, and David heard glimpses of such conversations. We refer to them as prophesies but David actually overheard a conversation going on in heaven.
The Holy Ghost maintains such a consciousness of prayer in you (if you allow Him) such that it will be possible for God at any time to drop prayer thoughts into your mind and you will deal with it. There have been days that I woke up with thoughts of someone on my spirit and I immediately began to pray for the person. I always make sure that the bulk of my prayer is in tongues and I speak in tongues almost at any place and anytime. You can get your spirit into such a prayer mood that there will be an atmosphere of prayer around you!
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, please take hold together with me in the place of prayer in Jesus’ name. Amen!
