Pray. Even if you don’t feel like praying, just pray. Even if things are going well in your life, just pray. When things are going difficult in your life, just pray. When there’s nothing to feel good or bad or worried or anxious about, just pray.
Because prayer is the one thing you would spiritually need. Everyone needs something to worship and pray. Even pagans too idolize and worship something – be it their job, their passions and desires, their careers, their children, their wealth, their money, their fame. And they too put effort into it – hard work, dedication, sacrifices, tenacity, struggle.
So if them pagans can do it – why not you, who have a heavenly father also make that time to do something for God? Find the time to pray. Turn off that email, close your laptop, disconnect from the internet, mute the radio, tune off your family, tune off your dog, switch off your feelings, pause that joy, settle down that anxiety, fear and doubt – and take 15 minutes to pray. Struggle at it, make the effort at it, drag your feet to it and take 15 minutes to pray.
Be still, and know that I am God – Psalm 46:10
