Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

what is prayer?

Prayer is much more than the words of our lips; it is the desires of our hearts, and our hearts are constantly 'desiring' before Him. - (Warren Wiersbe)

Truly, our hearts need to be in a constant state of prayer. We need to "pray without ceasing" as it tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Does that mean that we are to be bowed to Him in prayer 24 hours a day?  On our faces in prayer every minute of every hour? No, it means that we need to be in the posture of prayer at all times. Always aware of our God's presence and always aware of our deep need for Him. It is about our hearts being in tune with our LORD and Savior and in constant and loving communion with the Father. Praying without ceasing is about having holy desires in our hearts at all times. 

Even if our mouths never speak a word out loud, our hearts can be uttering praise and thanksgiving and confession and repentance and petition to a very worthy and very Holy and very good God!

"Our Father, which art in heaven, hallowed by thy Name"
(Matthew 6:9)
