Sometimes the devil will discourage you from praying; whispering to you that you have already had family prayer, you are tired and sleepy, you are late for an activity, you will pray later etc. You are encouraged to continue steadfastly in prayer (v.2). You can even pray silently as you walk down
the street or in your office as Nehemiah did (Neh. 2:4). Remember any
time with God is invested time!
Meditate on verse 2. How are you going to apply it to your life?
Ever loving Father in Heaven, in the name of Jesus Christ, help me to
continue steadfastly in prayer, and to remain watchful as I give thanks
to You. Amen.
