Without Ceasing_Prayer Post 1

Spiritual Snapshot

Are you awake? We are officially two and a half weeks removed from the end of the House of Prayer Challenge here at Lazybrook. We’ve  already seen so much fruit from the time spent in prayer and fasting in the lives of the people who took up the challenge, and God continues to bless us for it.  Still, the further away we move from the last night, the harder it becomes to remain focused and “awake” to God’s presence.  Don’t stop. Keep praying and seeking after God’s will. Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Meditate on this verse this week and remember that the only true place of joy is in the presence of God.
