“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” – Proverbs 3:5-6.
“And he [David] said, The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; the God of my rock; in Him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; Thou savest me from violence.” – 2 Samuel 22:2-3.
“Pray without ceasing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17
As I prayerfully pondered the question of what it means to “pray without ceasing”, I received the following answer:
Every time you start something new, no matter how small or mundane, pray – whether you are getting out of bed, making a drink, preparing a meal, brushing your teeth or attempting something far more challenging. Ask after My will, for guidance and direction, and for strength to accomplish the task. Ask for My blessing upon the labour of your hands..
