Take a D E E P Breath Of Prayer–Live Upside Down

God’s at it again–flipping everything on its head.  He’s asking us to stop being reliant on ourselves and rely on Him for EVERYTHING!  To pray without ceasing–just like breathing.

. . . think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts.  Our blood flows and our breathing continues “without ceasing”; we are not even conscious of it, but it never stops. And we are not always conscious of Jesus keeping us in perfect oneness with God . . .prayer is not an exercise, it is the life of the saint.  —Oswald Chambers

Prayer Tree

Prayer Tree

When I think of breathing I think of lungs–when I see lungs I think of an upside down tree–I think of life.  Thus, prayer, is the breath/tree of our life in Christ.

Pray without ceasing . . . about everything!
