Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV); Pray without ceasing.
Prayer was never designed to be an occasional experience.
While it is important to have moments specifically set aside for God, He meant it when He said, pray without ceasing.
Does praying without ceasing mean you speak in tongues the whole day or lock yourself up in a closet for twenty four hours? Of course not. How will you serve men if you turn yourself into a Pentecostal hermit?
Many people’s closets are physical and as such, their experience of the presence of God ends once they leave their rooms or whichever places they use for private prayer.
The closet need not be merely physical; it is a consciousness of God’s presence in any place and at any time.
A Christian who prays without ceasing is one who by experience has learnt to discern the presence of God. Even when God finds him in the busiest environment, He will know that the Spirit is in a place and requires Him to speak in tongues or tune in to what He desires to say.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The closet need not be merely physical; it is a consciousness of God’s presence in any place and at any time.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for launching me into a deeper life of prayer and communion. I consistently abide in You because I understand what it means to be connected and attuned to You at all times. My spirit is exercised to sense Your presence in any place and at any time, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
