Daily Bible Nugget #826, Colossians 4:2

The Nugget:

Col 4:2  Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;

My Comment:

There is much to learn from the Bible about prayer. We are thankful to God for His answers to prayer. Sometimes we are puzzled, frustrated, or discouraged from what seem to be our unanswered prayers. I posted articles here on the reasons given in the Bible for unanswered prayers. To those reasons I must add what the Bible teaches about the Silence of God. Colossians 4:2 still stands as an encouragement to “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.” It is the directly stated will of God that we “Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (1 Thessalonians 5:17, 18).
