Pray without ceasing… 1 Thessalonians 5:17 NASB

Why We Don’t

For thus says the high and exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy. “I dwell on a high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly of spirit in order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.” Isaiah 57:15 NASB

And they took offense at Him.  But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household.” And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief. Matthew 13:57 & 58 NASB

And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 NASB
