Pray Without Ceasing

"Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NASB)."

Pray without ceasing? What does this mean?

The adverb translated "without ceasing" was used in the original Greek text to refer to a hacking cough. A hacking cough is not something that consistently occurs all the time. But it does keep coming back.

Thus, the idea is not to be praying 100% of the time, but rather to return to prayer, repeatedly, during the day despite the interruptions of daily life.

Get into the habit of returning to prayer, from time to time, during the day—especially when you are experiencing spiritual warfare.

You will have more success, in terms of spiritual warfare, if you develop this habit.
