Watchman’s Daily Devotional: Pray at All Times (Luke 18:1). Paul Commands Us to “Pray Without Ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17).

In Philippians 1:9–11, it is evident that this section is a prayer. Usually, Paul's prayers showed his desire for his readers to grow spiritually. It is essential to rely on prayer for spiritual growth, as it connects Us to the power of the Holy Spirit.


Prayer is incredibly important, as Jesus directed His followers to pray constantly (Luke 18:1). Paul instructs us to maintain a constant attitude of prayer (1 Thess. 5:17). Peter emphasized the importance of maintaining a clear mind and focused attitude when praying (1 Pet. 4:7).

Many other commands are given in scripture to pray, but what truly reflects your faith is your inner drive to pray, not just following commands. As a believer, you live in a spiritual realm where prayer is as essential as breathing in the physical realm. Similar to how atmospheric pressure affects your lungs, prompting you to breathe, your faith surroundings urge you to pray. Resisting can lead to severe consequences.

Seeing life from a divine perspective increases your motivation to pray. Your prayers reflect the development of your faith. Paul prayed fervently day and night due to his deep care for God's people and their spiritual growth.

Reflect on your personal prayers. Do you pray because you feel obligated, or do you pray willingly? Do you pray seldom or for short periods? Are your prayers focused on your personal needs or the needs of others? Do you ask for the growth of others in their faith? These significant inquiries reflect your spiritual growth and provide direction for adjusting your prayer routine if necessary.

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
