This post from my wife was so awesome I had to steal it from her today:
How often do we withdraw from the busyness of life so that we can take time to pray? I find it’s more convenient to pray when I first wake up, and before I go to bed. I have to be more intentional, however, if I pray during the day. At times, life just gets so busy.
I read this book recently and came across this quote: “If you are too busy to pray, then you have even more reason to stop what you are doing and give yourself over to prayer.” It was a serious ouch moment for me. There is no such thing as praying enough. The Bible tells us that we are supposed to pray all the time. I’m one who utters sentence prayers throughout the day. If a person crosses my mind, I try to pray for them right that instant.
