“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. ” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Pray without ceasing. This may seem like a daunting task. Yet we are continuously called to prayer. To pray for each other. To pray for ourselves. To pray for the world in which we live. To pray alone. To pray in silence. To pray in song. To pray together.
In these times of social distancing, praying together can feel like another thing that we have lost. So during this time of Lent, let us gather together in prayer, even if we do so in a virtual way.
