I'm reminded of this because the football season in the U.S. ended yesterday. People who lament not having time for prayer or Bible study (among them many football fans) should be able to find a little more room in their schedule on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights. The same is true for fans when the soccer, basketball and hockey seasons are over.
Of course, it's not just sports fans who have trouble finding time for prayer. Parents with children, people taking care of the sick and the elderly, those working two or three jobs - all have the challenge of time for prayer. And God deserves quality time, not just a moment here and there on the fly.
For reflection: Let's take a look at our schedules. Is there anything that can be re-arranged or set aside? God is ready. Where and when can we meet him?
Let us pray. "O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways" (Psalm 139:1-2).
