Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
The key phrase of this scripture which I would like to emphasize is “pray continually”. Praying continually is not something that we are naturally motivated to do, but we must strive to do it. Jesus often withdrew from others to pray. There were times when He would pray all night; He also declared that His father’s house is to be a house of prayer.
Consider making a commitment to pray for 10 minutes every day. Decide what you will be praying about and stay focused. For example, you may want to pray for your family for 10 minutes, a friend, your church leaders, pastor or even your neighbour be specific and stay focused. Check the time before you start and go!
