Help My Unbelief
Unexpected Prayers STUDY
They say that I should pray without ceasing. Every minute of every day. Every second of every night. Calling on the name of the Lord asking and expecting his blessings. Always speaking to God, what he has first spoken to us. Living and dying as a child of God, no matter where I am or what I do. In word, in deed, in heart, in body. An ongoing conversation with the Lord, who I am, and ultimately who He is for me.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
But there are times, when the words may stop, and when I can’t hear His voice. There are times when I am unworthy to mouth the words He has given me to say. There are times when my thoughts have wandered far far away.
And there are times, when my heart won’t believe. When I am overtaken by doubt, and I can’t feel a thing. There are times when I have forgotten the words and despised the right deeds. The prayers of hands and my will have been silenced. And I can’t start it back up again.
