The Necessity of Prayer
(an excerpt from “Faith Sprinkles: Adult Coloring Bible Study- lesson one”)
1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 (NKJV) 17 pray without ceasing, 18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
The author of this verse, the apostle Paul, spent much of his life as a “missionary.” To both enable him to convert as many people as possible and temporarily avoid his Jewish enemies, Paul usually did not stay in any one place for very long. Such is the case when he visited Thessalonica. The apostle typically stayed in an area long enough to preach the good news and then he usually moved on. After he left an area, he would typically write letters to keep in touch with the new converts he left behind. I and 2 Thessalonians are such letters.
