Paul commands, “Pray continuously.” He sees prayer as an ongoing relationship. Sometimes this takes the form of a quick plea for help or offer of praise. Sometimes it takes the form of an extended prayer like when Jesus went up the mountainside to pray. I, too often, see prayer as a discipline. Oswald Chambers encourages us to think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood in our veins. Both are continuously exchanged and when we are healthy, we are not even conscious of it. Prayer could be an unconscious part of my life with God.
