God has more. He longs for you to grant Him access to your life through the attainable posture of unceasing prayer (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
And He has some things to say to you to help you see the inestimable value of such a life—to forever change the way you view the privilege of prayer.
#1: I want you, My people, to know that I am waiting for you.
I am more interested in prayer because I am more complete in my love; and if you loved like I love, you would want to talk with Me without ceasing. Know that unceasing prayer is not a command but an invitation!
#2: I want you to know that prayer is not complicated.
It is the heart of humble helplessness that looks to Me—not to yourselves—which is faith. Your greatest requirement to pray without ceasing is helplessness. The more helpless you are, the more qualified you are to pray. I am knocking at the door, desiring entrance. I am longing for you to open the door and grant Me access to your greatest areas of helplessness, all day long.
#3: I want you to learn the art of retiring into Me.
Learn how to stop and listen and be silent throughout the day. It is silence that makes My voice clear and distinct. I want you to know how to quiet your soul in the midst of anything … to abide in Me. Some of this is external—resisting the noise of the world. Some is internal—practicing the presence of God. Retreating. Consciously listening … for I am there, and I am not silent.
#4: I want you, My children, to ask more of Me in prayer, so your joy will be full.
Ask, and you will receive, so your joy may be full. And the world will see Me. I want to use you to show the world—and I want to use My church to show the world—that I answer the prayers of My people … that I am there constantly, waiting for you to pray.
#5: I want you to know that I love you.
I am more interested in 24/7 communion than you are, because I have the benefit of loving perfectly. Therefore, I long for you perfectly. And I long for you to long for Me. I do not want to be shut out, to be ignored, to not be consulted, for I know that there is so much more, if you will pray without ceasing.
