Instant in Prayer

Rejoicing in hope;
 patient in tribulation;
 continuing instant in prayer;...
Romans 12:12 KJV

I've been reading the King James Version lately and basking in the beauty of the wording.  Though it is sometimes difficult to understand the Old English, it is, indeed, beautiful.
My thoughts go to "No prayer in the schools or businesses."

One can pray anywhere and anytime and eyes can remain open."Continuing instant in prayer" implies praying all the time and at a moment's notice.  One can instantly turn to the Lord in prayer in any situation.  Nothing can stop him except Death itself.  We have this gift given to us and many take advantage of it?

Gifts From Above

"The Gift by the Maker," by Sally L. Smith 

But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. (ESV)
But the wisdom that comes from above leads us to be pure, friendly, gentle, sensible, kind, helpful, genuine, and sincere. When peacemakers plant seeds of peace, they will harvest justice. (CEV)
James 3:17-18

In whatever version you choose, it stills make sense.
  If only I displayed more of this wisdom.  
My heart says "yes" but my stubborn will says "no." 
 Come on Heart!!!  Do your work.

Evening Shadows

"The fear of God is the antidote" by Art4TheGlryOfGod by Sharon under Creative Commons License.

The wicked will not prosper, 
for they do not fear God.
 Their days will never grow long
 like the evening shadows.
 Ecclesiastes 8:12-13

I must continue to remember this 
sometimes it is difficult.
