    Janet,

    Maybe we sometimes “forget” to pray because we are so focused on ourselves, instead of our Creator and Savior, who gives us the breath we breathe…. We forget that God is all around us and knows our every thought and feeling…. He even knows our future…. Oh how we need to keep Him in remembrance throughout every day…. Thank you for this post.

    I know people have different views on what it means to “pray without ceasing,” but I think this is one of the ways we obey Him in this. I think this kind of prayer also makes us more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading.

    And yes…I’m just reading this post now. (grin)

      Stephanie, I need to go back and more carefully read the links to background on the Jesus Prayer and learn more, but I remember reading that in one of them–about it being a good lead-in to praying without ceasing. Anything that makes us more sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading is good to me!
