I recently went to visit a family that is going through a tough time. As I turned to leave, I assured the grandmother that I would keep them in my prayers. She asked, “Could you pray now?”
Her response made me do an abrupt turnaround. Of course I could pray now! So I did, and she was very thankful that I talked to God on her behalf…right then.
This reminded me of a simple truth. When it comes to prayer, there’s no time like the present. You can’t pray in the past. The future isn’t here yet. The only time we can really pray is now.
“Pray continually.”—1 Thessalonians 5:17.
