Pray Always

Pray when times are difficult. 

Pray when you can’t find any words to say. 

Pray when you feel lost. Pray when you are sad. Pray when you can’t decipher your emotions. Pray when you just want to cry. 

Pray when you’re afraid. Pray when you lose someone. Pray when you find someone.

Pray when you feel like nothing makes sense. Pray when you need direction. Pray when you are hurting. Pray when you see others hurting.

Pray when you need to know that you are not alone. Pray when you mess up. Pray when you fail. 
Pray when it is difficult to talk to God.

Pray when you are grateful. Pray when good things happen. 

Pray when you need to change. Pray when you are afraid of change. Pray constantly. Pray continually. Pray without stopping.

In prayer, we feel God’s presence. He is always with us, and we can call out to him no matter where we are or what is going on in our lives. We can talk to him when we are in any kind of situation. 
We can ask God for anything that we need and know that he will take care of us. We can pray to him when we are feeling any kind of emotion.

Pray continually.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
