1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18,” rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” Prayer is one of the ways we communicate with God, when we pray to God, we are the ones who benefits most. When we pray to God, we open up and are able to grasp what God has in store for us; what it is God is saying to us. In praying we are to rejoice, always. God swings into action in ways we cannot tell or explain when we rejoice over what we ask of Him while he is yet to do it. The more we thank God, the more God blesses us. As we thank God on purpose, blessings flow. Most times we do not pray as we ought to but the holy spirit of God intercedes for us in groaning that we do not understand. Romans 8:26; “In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are. For we do not know how we ought to pray; the Spirit Himself pleads with God for us in groans that we cannot express.” The Holy Spirit intercedes for us according to the will of God. Praying constantly helps us stay alert because while praying, it is easier for God us receives revelation and directions from God. We are able to overcome the devices of the enemy. In praying we learn to be alert and watch. Colossians 4:2; "Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving."
