Pray Constantly…but when?

There’s no question that daily life can get hectic.  The more quiet time you have with God, the better, but quality is more important than quantity.  Try these tips:

Write it on the calendar.  Have a reminder come up on your PDA or computer, or write it on your appointment calendar, “Appointment with God.”

Find a prayer partner.  Is there someone at work or in your neighborhood with whom you can spend time each day in prayer?  How about your spouse?  Having to answer to a partner will make it more likely that you will take the time. 

Pray the wait.  Stuck in traffic or waiting for an elevator is just the right amount of time for a “Glory Be,” or the Jesus prayer (“Jesus, son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.”)

Pocket your prayer.  String ten beads, ten paper clips or ten of anything that will fit into your pocket.  Pull it out when you have a moment and say ten quick prayers.  The weight in your pocket will be a good reminder, too.
