January Visitor Asks, Like Prayer?

Story by Visitor Staff
Published 1/7/14

Like prayer? The answer may be very simple, however, finding time to fit it into our daily lives may be difficult. In the January Visitor, our reporter Tamyra Horst, who has written several books about “praying like crazy,” explores how we can pray more.
She writes: “Using Survey Monkey for an unscientific poll, I asked more than 50 pastors, teachers and administrators across the Columbia Union how they manage to include daily prayer in their busy lives. Thirty-one percent reported praying less than 20 minutes a day! … But, they all said they want more. One respondent wrote, “[I] always begin and end each day with prayer. I also pray in between but still don’t think I pray nearly enough.” This desire to make prayer a consistent part of the day is more challenging than it seems. We head into our day with good intentions, but the urgent demands, interruptions and never ending to-do lists often keep us from remembering to ‘pray without ceasing.’ So, some of us have built reminders into our lives to send us back to prayer.”
