Praying for a Less Busy Heart

“If you are not praying, then you are quietly confident that time, money and talent are all you need in life.  You’ll always be a little too tired, a little too busy.  But if, like Jesus, you realize you can’t do life on your own, then no matter how busy, no matter how tired you are, you will find the time to pray.” 

“Learning to pray doesn’t offer us a less busy life; it offers us a less busy heart.”  (from A Praying Life, by Paul Miller)
