So I asked her to guest blog for me and talk about something we all know we should do, but sometimes wonder how.
Glean from Marnie as she talks about how you and I can pray continually (and leave a comment below and you could win a copy of one of my books.)
The Bible says, “Pray without ceasing.” If you’re like me, that seemed an impossible command.
I want to share with you the dolphin analogy that God used to help me adopt the habit of praying without ceasing. I hope it will be as helpful to you as it has been to me in unraveling this puzzle.
Simply stated, God created dolphins to be water dwellers, but air breathers. He created us to be earth dwellers, but prayer breathers.
Ephesians 2:6 uses the present tense when it describes our ability to be spiritually in the presence of God even while being stuck here on earth. “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.”
Dolphins can breathe air while living in the water. They can survive about five minutes before surfacing, but not much more. We can survive just about as long without going up to God for prayer.
