It’s GOD @ WORK WEEK here on GUWG, where we’re taking an in-depth look at what the Bible says about the wonderful world of work.
Here’s today’s verse . . .
(1 Thessalonians 5:17)
If you take this verse literally, it seems ridiculous. But maybe God means exactly what he says.
Basically, praying is staying connected to God. If we aren’t connected to God in this world, we’re as good as dead. So . . .
Pray when you wake up. Pray while you shower. Pray when you can’t find your hairbrush. Pray when you’re stuck in traffic. Pray for your boss. Pray for that annoying co-worker who keeps stealing your stapler. Pray before you hit “send” on that e-mail with all the capital letters and exclamation points. Pray for that big project you haven’t started yet that’s due Friday. Pray before you call the help desk to complain about your computer losing that document you worked on all afternoon but forgot to save. Pray while you drive home. Pray before you eat. Pray while you eat. Pray after you eat. Pray while you watch TV. Pray before you go to bed. Pray while you’re lying there freaking out about everything you forgot to do today and everything you have to do tomorrow. Pray, pray, pray, pray. And then pray some more.
God wants to be with us every single moment of our lives. We should want the same.
