Prayer: How Often is “Without Ceasing”?

Is it possible for you to ever think of yourself as a person of prayer?

When we hear the description “a person of prayer,” we often picture some admirably pious person. We think of those spiritual giants who teach Sunday School, serve as deacons, lead church committees, witness to people at bus stops, etc.

But, if you are a follower of Jesus, did you know that Jesus already considers you a person of prayer? Sure, you may not think much of your own prayer life. You may even be so intimidated by the concept of prayer that it has become almost absent from your life. This, however, is not the result of your ability to pray, but rather of the detrimental effects of worldly concerns and Satan’s lies at work in your life.

On this week’s episode of The DBC Podcast, I sat down with some people I consider spiritual giants (even if they would never call themselves such a thing) – Senior Pastor Allen Jackson and Student Pastor Mark Paul – to talk about what it looks like for a Christian to be a person of prayer. How should we think about the role of prayer in our lives? What specific practices can we incorporate into our daily lives to strengthen our ability and desire to pray.

I hope you enjoy this week’s conversation. As always, I would love to hear from you. What are your feelings on prayer? How do you go about it in your day-to-day life? What struggles to you face when it comes to this essential discipline of Jesus-followers? Share your thoughts in the Comments Section below.
