I was recently reminded of the good idea to pray for people as they come to your mind. After that I had several people coming to my mind one day as I was driving. It seemed that as soon as I would begin praying for one, another person would come to mind. That prayer would lead to another thought, and another prayer, and so it went. I clearly remember thinking and saying to God, "If I really pray for every person that comes to mind, when am I going to have time for my own thoughts? All of my head-time would be spent talking to You!" Hmmm ... could that be God's purpose or His plan?
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 - NIV)
