Tony Smith continues the series on Prayer by giving the background to, and explaining the significance of, 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28. Setting Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians, the Thessalonian church and Paul's gospel-centred mission in their context, Tony concentrates on verses 16-18. What does it mean to pray without ceasing? Why do "rejoice always" and "give thanks in all circumstances" surround this encouragement? Tony explains that "pray continuously" is not a legalistic command, but is instead an encouragement to the Church. He explains how prayer should look in our personal lives and in our lifestyle, as well as how the Church community and Church culture are affected.
