This is a quote from Reverend Susan LaMar, pastor of a church near us:
My priorities are sleep first, meditation and prayer second, and everything else follows. If my day seems too busy to pray, I double the time I spend in prayer . . . and all else follows. And goes better. It is the tender offering that I give to that which I call God.
Do I dare try this? Would I even succeed at trying to double the time I spend in prayer instead of removing it from the schedule when I can't find space on the calendar for all of the other things? Can I handle what God might show me, say to me and ask of me if I do this?
