Round-the-clock prayer movements have surged in the last few years, and we can understand why. If God responds to prayers of faith, and if prayer and worship are always appropriate, it only makes sense that the human heart would long to connect with him at all hours. We want a maximum-depth relationship with the one who never sleeps.
This is nothing new, of course. David, the king described as a man after God’s own heart, instituted round-the-clock worship when he brought the tabernacle to Jerusalem. Paul urged believers to pray without ceasing. Monastic orders have sought isolation for the sake of unbroken devotion. The Moravians began a prayer vigil that lasted 100 years. No one person can fulfill these impulses, but a community can. And history has proven God’s generous response to those who seek him so constantly.
Cultivate that desire for constancy. It’s normal. Don’t exhaust yourself trying to live up to a false standard; no one can spend every moment in focused worship and prayer. But whenever your heart has the impulse to bring God into the margins of your day—through prayer, worship music, celebration and gratitude—honor the impulse. That’s the Spirit drawing closer and seeking the same fellowship you desire. Individually, our spiritual activity can’t go 24/7, but our love certainly can. At any moment—at every moment—the Spirit invites a deeper fellowship.
