175: Praying Without Ceasing: Action, or Attitude?

In relationships with someone, what are the two key things required to keep the relationship healthy and growing? The answer may be more simple than you think!

This week on the podcast, we’re talking about “praying without ceasing,” and what that actually looks like. And in case you’re wondering, it doesn’t mean walking around with your eyes closed at all times! We’ll look at what it truly means to be constantly communicating with God, and living a life defined by “praying without ceasing.” Plus, we’re celebrating something special this week, so be sure to listen and find out what! All that and more, on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

The May Challenge!

For the month of May, we’re going to be focusing on something very special: something that allows us to have an audience with the “Supreme Commander of the Universe.” It’s something that Jesus even did, as he said in Luke 22:42, “not my will, but thine be done.” We’re talking about prayer, and learning to fellowship with God!

So, here’s our challenge for this month: Set aside at least 10 minutes a day for prayer every day this month!

Our goal this month is once again to avoid thinking about the challenge as something to just “check off,” but to look forward to an appointment of fellowship with God each day, in addition to talking to God “without ceasing” throughout the day (we’ll be discussing that too!). In fact, if you already have a habit of prayer each day, take the challenge to the next level, and increase your normal time of fellowship with God by 10 minutes! We want to be encouraging you to make a habit of setting aside time to go before God’s Throne, interceding for others, and seeking God’s direction and guidance in every step of our lives. Join us on the podcast each week as we dig deeper into what God’s Word has to say about this incredible privilege of communing with our Heavenly Father in prayer!

  1. Great podcast! I’m really enjoying the prayer oriented episodes, because it’s the biggest part of our walk as Christians. If you have a relationship with God then nothing else matters. Thanks for another great episode of the Sharpening Character podcast!
