Praying without Ceasing“God’s command to ‘pray without ceasing’ is founded on the necessity we have of his grace to preserve the life of God in the soul, which can no more subsist one moment without it, than the body can without air.”
~From A Plain Account of Christian Perfection, as believed and taught by the Reverend Mr. John Wesley, from the year 1725, to the year 1777.
1) Practice Breath PrayerIn a breath prayer, a simple prayer of only one or two sentences can be said over and over until it becomes a rhythm. One breath prayer that I like to pray is:
Hold your breath and your consciousness of God’s presence…
And then exhale as you whisper or think: “…I shall not want.”
