Article Excerpt:

[Kyria; May, 2010]

 

“Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances” (I Thess 5:17)

 

Have you ever wondered what St. Paul was talking about? How can a person pray constantly? Yet this wasn’t the only time St. Paul urged his hearers to constant prayer.

 

“Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer” ( Romans 12:12).

 

“Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance” (Eph 6:18).

 

“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving”  Col 4:2.

 

If he took the trouble to say this to four different communities, he must have thought it was important. And he must have thought it was possible. He wouldn’t have kept urging his hearers to do something that was completely beyond their capability.
