Having structured daily prayer and reflection habits are extremely important on this spiritual pilgrimage. For centuries desert mothers and fathers have set aside specific times and places to pray and reflect. Jesus often went away to pray. He knew that he needed to do that to stay connected with the Lord God, and to be renewed in his spirit and physical body.
Some of us may try and fool ourselves into believing that having a specific prayer time and place isn’t important. In our fast-paced and very noisy society one may wonder how one can take time out of a busy day for prayer, but like anything else in our lives we will find time to do the things that are really important for us. I wish you well in setting aside a time and place to spiritually stay connected with the Lord God! Vernon T.
