If You Pray Unceasingly, You Really Glutt on God.

“Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a man to cease from prayer.” ~ John Bunyan

Strong words. Beautiful tension. True to every person.

These words primarily targets the battlefield of prayer that continuously is being encountered by Christians. The simple truth is this: the more that we pray, the more we can stay away from sin; the more that we sin, the more we stay away from prayer.

Or to put it in another way: the more we would like to stay away from then the more that we pray; and the more we would like to stay on sinning, then the more we avoid prayer.

This is the real Christian Life. Our new identity in Christ desires that we draw to God in holiness, but the flesh, still being alive in a Christian (in varying degrees respective to every Christian individual), desires to sin and to stay from holy living.

The battle of every believer.
