Those of us married in a church may remember words from our wedding vow that went “till death do us part”. The statement reflects the idea of being ever faithful unless one party adulterates the relationship unwilling to change.

Our Lord God has made such a vow to each of us sealed on the cross to be ever faithful to us not just for this life but for all eternity. That bond can only be broken if we through the free will He allows us decide to deny Him and His Word.

Pastor E. M. Bounds once said that such an ever faithful God needs to be engaged and absorbed because of how He enriches and empowers our life. One manner of doing this is through the Pauline prayer method which stated in Colossions 1:3 is simply to “pray always”. This is also pointed out in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

As we grow in righteousness through the process of sanctification ever more desiring to grow in His image we will want to be in prayer more often. Not just the prayers we say out of habit at mealtime, church or bedtime. We need to be about really communicating with God letting all that is in our heart speak and not just our mind.

There are many general requirements Scripture puts before us for our prayer life as I spoke about earlier in a related blog but suffice it to say that one of the primary keys to unlock the door that allows for an unbelievable relationship is to be EVER FAITHFUL.
