Principles:

  1. When you live out of a heart to know and apply God’s word, you are, in a sense, praying at all times in the spirit.
  2. Remain (abide) with Jesus.
  3. In addition to being on your knees prayerfully, you’re also to be walking on your feet prayerfully every day.
  4. You don’t need to be in the activity of prayer 24/7, but when awake each day, live a life fully devoted to Jesus, always yielding to the Spirit and in humble submission to and dependence on the Lord.
