Hopefully, by now, you are in the 'habit', of taking time in the day for a 'devotion' stop. Hopefully, you now do this because you know the value of doing so. Meeting at the beginning of any day with the Lord, is TRUE WISDOM. Remember:
Proverbs 3:13-18 - Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man [that] getteth understanding. [Read More...audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html] THEREFORE:
First for this morning and on-going, my 'continuing prayer', for this series and more, is found in Ephesians 3:14-21, to wit: [audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
'14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.'
Now, [Selected from 'Morning and Evening Devotions, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1855']

“Continue in prayer.”
Colossians 4:2 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'It is interesting to remark how large a portion of Sacred Writ is occupied with the subject of prayer, either in furnishing examples, enforcing precepts, or pronouncing promises. We scarcely open the Bible before we read, “Then began men to call upon the name of the Lord;” [Genesis 4:26]; and just as we are about to close the volume, the “Amen” of an earnest supplication meets our ear. [Revelation 22:20-21]
Instances are plentiful. Here we find a wrestling Jacob, Genesis 28:18-22—there a Daniel who prayed three times a day, Daniel 6:10—and a David who with all his heart called upon his God. Psalm 118.5. On the mountain we see Elias; 1 Kings 18:30-46; in the dungeon Paul and Silas, Acts 16:16.
We have multitudes of commands, and myriads of promises. What does this teach us, but the sacred importance and necessity of prayer? We may be certain that whatever God has made prominent in his Word, he intended to be conspicuous in our lives. If he has said much about prayer, it is because he knows we have much need of it. So deep are our necessities, that until we are in heaven we must not cease to pray. Dost thou want nothing? Then, I fear thou dost not know thy poverty. Hast thou no mercy to ask of God? Then, may the Lord’s mercy show thee thy misery! A prayerless soul is a Christless soul.'
'Prayer is the lisping of the believing infant, the shout of the fighting believer, the requiem of the dying saint falling asleep in Jesus. It is the breath, the watchword, the comfort, the strength, the honour of a Christian. If thou be a child of God, thou wilt seek thy Father’s face, and live in thy Father’s love.
Pray that this year thou mayst be holy, humble, zealous, and patient; have closer communion with Christ, and enter oftener into the banqueting-house of his love. Pray that thou mayst be an example and a blessing unto others, and that thou mayst live more to the glory of thy Master. The motto for this year must be, “Continue in prayer.” Amen. Amen.'
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
