In All Things Pray

Matthew 6:25

“25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink,or about your body, what you will wear.”

1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

“16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Followers of Christ were told by Christ not to worry.  Then, Paul told the Christians in Thessalonica to always rejoice and give thanks in all circumstances.  

How are we to do this?  This seems humanly impossible.  

The answer lies in chapter 5 verse 17 of Paul’s letter.  In order to live in such a way, we are to give our lives over to prayer; we are to pray continuously.  In other words, we are to live in constant awareness of God’s presence, His love, His grace, and His mercy.

Rejoice in everything, worry about nothing.  But in all things pray.

May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier
