Pray without ceasing

Today I thought it would be interesting to know how many times God talks about praying without ceasing in the Bible.  There are many more verses than I thought.  It’s pretty interesting.  When the Bible tells you something repeatedly, it’s probably a good thing to listen to.

My dad should be getting out of the hospital today.  I haven’t talked to my mom in a couple of days, but I’ve talked to my dad everyday.  Yesterday he said he was coming home today.  He said that the 2 chemo treatments have broken down the cancer ahead of time.  I kind of figured that with as many problems he had with bleeding after the first chemo treatment.  The doctor wants to wait an extra week before giving the next chemo treatment so that his body with get stronger.  It shouldn’t matter because when I got my chemo it was suppose to be every 3 weeks, but it was every 4 weeks.  The doctor told me it didn’t matter.  I know I enjoyed my extra week because it was the only week I felt good.

A friend of mine told me that she writes down a verse she wants to memorize and she quotes that verse before she prays everyday until she has it solidly memorized, then she goes to the next verse.  She keeps the verses on flash cards and carries them around with her on a key chain everywhere she goes.  Today I have 3 verses I want to share because they go together.  These are important for me because it will remind me how to pray and get the most out of my prayers.

Philippians 4:6-7, 19 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
