When should I pray?

“Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.”  Psalm 55:17.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 2 Samuel 19-20, Psalm 55, and Matthew 28.

Without ceasing!

If I am not seeking God, then I am seeking something godless.  Satan will gladly fill in any non-God moments with his plans.

A common failure among believers is not realizing how dependent on God we need to be to rightly represent Him.

We cannot expect to represent someone we only have a casual acquaintance with.  God is not mocked.

Consider the things we know best.  Why do we know them so well?  Concentrated time and energy.

The more I read the Bible the more I am aware that God expects me to concentrate on Him.  He doesn’t tell me to separate from Him.  To be independent.

God admits to being jealous.  He wants my full attention. When I drift off, He is offended. Why? I claim to love Him more than anything/anyone else.

“Help me, Father, to love You as You deserve.  Forgive me for my wandering eyes.  For being drawn to counterfeits.  They are terminal.  You are eternal.  Prick my conscience when I start to drift away from You.  Deliver me, I beg, from evil. Thank You for Your Word.  I love You, Lord.”

Be mindful of God without ceasing.
