Above and beyond all, let us THANK GOD FOR HIS CROSS. It is the most important thing.

I agree to what Mark Dever was saying about the fact that we are not to stop praying in order to be somewhere else or do something else. We are told in Php. 4:4 and in 1 Thes. 5:16 to rejoice always, which is a part of our prayer. In Php. 4:6, we are told to pray with thanksgiving, which is synonomous to rejoicing. We are to pray about everyone and everything and in order to do that I have learned to pray for people at the moment they come into my mind. Thankfully, I pray as I wake up and then with my family in the morning when we come together and pray for all meals, including snacks. I made up favorite numbers and pray when I see them anywhere like on cars, clocks, etc. God leads me to pray when riding in some form of transportation to reach my destiny safely and when going to bed. God leads me to pray as I walk and am lead, by the Spirit, to meditate on the fruit of the Spirit as I am around people. I listen to Christian music, which leads me to praise our great God and Savior. When I am starting to feel bad, sad, or good, I am led to pray and praise God for the occasion, even for the "bad" because the Bible says to do so. God really means for us to continue praying without ceasing. We are even called to pray for our authorities. So with all of this in mind, let us pray for all and remember to do it, THANKFULLY. Amen.

Every area of one's life should be presented to God and ask for discernment to do the Godly thing, ask yourself WHAT WOULD JESUS DO. That is what I do. I give HIM thanks.
