21,600 Prayers a Day

The Bible says: “pray without ceasing.” That imperative in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 is a tall order!

So, how’s that working for ya?!

Well, my suggestion is simply 21,600 prayers a day. Yep, that should do it.

What?

The Creator has made us for prayer & constant contact with our Creator. Genesis tells us that God breathed life into human beings. The breath within you is the very breath of God, the presence of God.

Also, consider this: what is God’s most personal name? “God” and “Lord” are titles, used in reverence (and appropriately so), but these are not personal names. God’s casino online most personal name in the Old Testament is Yahweh. Hebrew has no vowels & ancient Hebrew is most difficult to approximate exactly the “sound” or pronunciation of the most Holy Name, especially since Jews have always preferred forms of “El-“ for titles (Lord, Lord Almighty, etc) so that the most Holy Name may not be uttered too frequently, if at all.

It has been long understood that YHWH (transliteration) or Yahweh is simply the sound of our breath, inhale & exhale (try it).

So, here’s my thought: every breath is a prayer. Every time you breathe you whisper God’s most Holy Name! Yahweh.

And how often are we breathing? Without ceasing.

That’s about 21,600 prayers a day. If the average person breathes about 15 times a minute, then you can do the math as well as I can.

21,600 breath-prayers daily. You are – right now – praying without ceasing. Every part of your person – body-mind-Spirit – praises the Lord!

Let everything that has breath, Praise the Lord!
