        (06/30/2000) pray without ceasing
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: pray without ceasing

[1 Thessalonians 5:17]
Pray without ceasing.

How can we pray without ceasing?

Don't we need to eat, to drink, to work and how can we
pray at the same time? Sometimes I come before God and
I "try" to build up His presence by praying, praising,
etc and making myself spiritual. But I need to be
conscious that whatever I do, His presence is there. I
can't run from Him and there is no where to hide.

[John 14:16-17]
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter,that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth
him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and
shall be in you.

When I leap out of bed in the morning, when I brush my
hair, when I drive, when I work, the Holy Spirit is
there with me. I can either be conscious of His
presence and communicate with Him in everything, when
I am alone or when I'm with my friends and with
clients, or I can ignore Him. If I am always conscious
of His presence and if I can visualize Him standing or
sitting next to me, I can then understand the concept
of praying without ceasing and practice what Paul
exhorted the Thessalonians to do.

2. New prayer requests:
i. Daughter joins cult -- myharley
Please say a prayer for your 19 year old daughter who
joined a cult. We pray for her safety and that the
good lord will shine upon her and she will someday see
what has happened. She has disowned her family,
friends, and neighbors. Only wishes to be with her
boyfriend and his sister who is in this cult. We miss
her a great deal.

ii. My husband's brother passed away Saturday -- lynne
Please pray for the family. Thank you. Lynne

iii. We're moving -- d_korie
We are moving to a little town in South Texas called
Rockport and I am scared to death. My mom says that we
will get closer or farther apart. Both of my parents
aren't Christians and I am really spiritual. I love
them and I have tried to ask them if they would even
think about accepting Jesus, but they have no reply.
What should I do to make this move easier and how am I
going to help my parents? Thanks a bunch for caring
about me!

iv. Prayer for me!! -- guest
Hello, My name is Amanda Smith, I have been working on
my job for 3 years! In the three years, I have not had
a pay rate increase!! I am a very hard worker,
diligent, sufficient!!! Every time a increase is
brought up, I get all types of excuses!! My patience
has become very short. And I know that God will meet
my needs according to his riches,However I desperately
need the Holy Spirit to intercede on my behalf as it
relates to my job. Someone's heart will be touched and
moved to see that I am a single parent raising two
lovely boys. But sometimes it's so hard!! God has been
my strength through this! I also ask that you pray
that God will bring me up to level of rightousness
that meets his standards!!! Sometimes I get depressed
about this situation. The bible says, The prayers of
the righteous availeth much. I trust that when you
receive this E-mail, you will offer a prayer for me to
God!! Thank You
