Unceasing Prayer

     Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matt. 6:21) says the Lord. If we would place all our treasure, that is all that is dear to us and loved by us, in the Lord alone, then without doubt He alone would fill our heart and thoughts and all our spiritual being with Himself. The instruction of the Apostle about unceasing prayer should not be an extremely difficult commandment for us, but should be only the fulfilling of our soul's need and the satisfaction of its yearning - to be always inseparably with the Lord in heart and mind. Unceasing "mental" prayer should be our indefeasible precious possession, a fountain of spiritual sweetness and of spaciousness of the heart.
