Too Busy to Pray?


Too Busy to Pray?

The Christian form of unceasing prayer may have been preceded by the Psalmist David who wrote, “I have set the Lord always before me” (Ps. 16:8). The Apostle Paul encouraged believers in Thessalonica to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thess. 5:17). Never has this method of prayer been more appropriate than in our fast-lane lifestyles.

Need a model? In church history, the Celtic people believed that God was with them every moment of the day, so they used short prayers to communicate with God as they performed their chores. Celtic writer, Ester de Waal, explained, “They were the prayers of a people who were so busy from dawn to dusk, from dark to dark, that they had little time for long, formal prayers. Instead throughout the day they did whatever had to be done carefully, giving it their full attention, yet at the same time making it the occasion for prayer.” Next time you are too busy to stop for prayer, try this method.
