Many who live in such a busy city as ours often find it difficult to have an elaborate or long time to pray in the early hours of the day while rushing off to work. And sometimes, they may struggle to pray after the business of the day as they would be tired. This often makes such believers feel guilty and less powerful in the things of the Spirit. That feeling reduces their faith in themselves and in what they are capable of doing with God. This ought not to be.
Our opening text today gives a powerful pointer to how you can buy time from your busy schedule by using the principle of maximization, which means praying with every opportunity you get.
The difference between thinking and praying is the direction. If you will think your thoughts God-ward, i.e. towards God, then you can convert all your thinking time to prayer time, and that would give you many hours of prayer time every day.
Therefore, while you are seating in the bus or driving to your office, you can spend time to pray under your breath, or during your break time, or even while in the restroom. Discuss your present feeling, emotion, circumstance, objective, targets etc. with God instead of just thinking about it. The goal here is maximizing every single opportunity to talk to God.
