Praying without ceasing means living each moment in the presence of Christ. It’s not a place or for any specific reason—it’s an attitude of prayer.

Jesus knew His followers would struggle as they attempted to talk with God. So, in the Lord's Prayer, Jesus gave us an illustration of how to pray.

Our Lord's example can help us put into words what our hearts long to say to God.
