Pray Continually

Many Christians have dedicated a special time of day when they pray. But the Bible calls us to pray continually.

Luke 18:1. He also spoke a parable to them that they must always pray, and not give up,

Luke 21:36. Therefore be watchful all the time, praying that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will happen, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Romans 12:12. rejoicing in hope; enduring in troubles; continuing steadfastly in prayer;
