Teen Tuesday: Take time to Pray

Yes, I’ve been in that situation: someone starts praying and my mouth is full of fries or something else!  I think everyone has forgotten at some point to pray before they eat.  We ought to remember to stop each time we eat and thank the Lord for what He has given us.  However, this should not be the only time that God hears our voice.  He wants us to come to Him for everything.  There are a lot of times where we forget to go to the Lord in prayer.   The Bible says in I Thessalonians 5:17  “Pray without ceasing.”  God desires to talk with us throughout the day.  It is not teaching us that we should stay on our knees all day long.  It is telling us that God wants us to pray at the beginning of our day, and all throughout our day until we go to sleep.  Pray many times a day.  If we will change how often we pray, we probably wouldn’t get caught as many times with our mouth full of fries.  Instead we will catch ourselves in constant contact with the One who gave us everything.
