Time to pray...


Have you ever said, “If only I had more time to pray...”? And yet, why is it that those who are doing the most for the growth of God’s kingdom seem to be able to spend plenty of time in prayer? The answer is pretty simple: it has to be made part of a daily routine.

We rarely hear ourselves say, “If only I had more time to eat...” or “if only I had more time to watch television...” We find the time to do those things that either we must do, or that we want to do. They become part of our routine, and we plan our day around those “constant” factors. Prayer should be one of those unchangeable elements of daily life around which all other things are arranged. We might be amazed at the effect it would have!
