Today during my quiet time with the Lord I had several scriptures that were addressing prayer. And the verse that came to mind that I wanted to share about today is one I read a few days ago and God put on my heart to blog about, but I never got around to it that day. So today I am being obedient and blogging about it. 🙂 The constant reminder to pray during my reading this morning brought me back to one of the very first scriptures that I ever memorized as an adult.

I will share the passage that the Lord gave to me earlier this week, and put the particular verse that I memorized in italics.
1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 Rejoice always pray without ceasing give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
We are currently going through a crisis with our oldest daughter’s health, and earlier this week when I read these verses I had wanted to blog about how we are finding in a very real way that these verses bring comfort in even very trying times.
