Squeezing the budget

Do you find time to pray? Do you make time to pray? What if the first thing you put in your schedule was time to pray?

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?
