Ephesians 6:18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints
Prayer, communion with God. Actually talking to God but also allowing God to talk to me. Prayer isnt achieving my agenda in this life but understanding the will of God. The description of being "watchful" is right on. Prayer opens up our awareness of what God is doing. Its through prayer, His will is illuminated and we see what He is going to do. Then He brings it to pass, and joy fills our lives. Pray always! Never break that line of communication. God loves revealing what He is doing to His own.
