Shortest Bible verse?

After being stuck on my last verse at Bible Memory for at least two weeks (I definitely needed to learn it! It's the little words--can vs should--that get me stuck), I think I should be able to master this one:

Pray continually 1 Thessalonians 5:17

I think I'll even be able to get the address :) I thought "Jesus wept" was the shortest verse; I guess this does have more letters.

But even though it's short, it still has power. I've been praying a lot for Kim and Callie (and Dave and Noah), and for my friend Jen too. But I need to pray more about what comes out of my mouth (or fingers) too.

Lord, help me filter my life through You, everything I say or do.

Thanks for the prayers Ann...and the reminder to do so continuously...right now it's easy to fall into the doctor mode and forget that God is the ultimate doctor and we need to keep turning to him.

Yes, thanks for the prayers. It seems easier to be on the offering side of prayer than the receiving end...until I think, like you, about all my words being potential prayers
