Is it possible to pray all the time?

Too often our day's schedule seems to crowd out prayer. Yet aren't unselfish love and spiritual listening our daily needs?

At a special church workshop meeting, the members were asked to raise their hands if they really loved God with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their mind. The members were utterly silent. Not one hand was raised. It certainly was food for thought.

I remember reading many years ago that we must think about God constantly if we would truly love Him. My first response was "Impossible!" How could one think about God constantly?

But as I continued to puzzle over this question, I felt that perhaps it wasn't so much "thinking about God" constantly that I needed to consider but rather how I could "pray without ceasing." I Thess. 5:17.
