Can You Handle 5 Minutes of Prayer a Day? Me Either!

images-3Can You Handle 5 Minutes of Prayer a Day?

I hope not! Why? Well, lets think of it this way…if I only prayed 5 minutes a day, I wouldn't be able to even scratch the surface of all my needs and the needs of other people I want to pray for.

And 5 minutes a day with the most important being in my life?

Nope!

I need more time with God! There's no way I can tell him everything that's on my heart in just 5 minutes.

  • No way I can let him speak to me and tell me what I need to know for my day in 5 minutes.
  • No way I can unload all of my cares on him in 5 min.
  • No way I can thank him for everything I'm grateful for in 5 minutes.
  • No way I can kick back and enjoy his presence in just 5 minutes.

I need more time with Him!

The Simple Solution:

Pray continually throughout the day. It's really not as hard as you might think. Just make it an ongoing conversation.

1 Thes 5:16-18 MSG

…pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

Just include God in everything you’re doing. Like he's your constant companion, always by your side. Glued to you and attached to your hip. Where you go, he goes. What you're involved in, he's involved in.

Makes sense then, that you'd talk to him about the things you are doing each day and night right?

So, can you handle 5 minutes of prayer a day? Yes…and more!!!
