For the past several months I have been taking the city bus to work about once or twice a week. It’s a 20 minutes ride and when I first started to ride the bus I would pull out my phone and start surfing, texting, emailing etc. to pass the time along. After a while it occurred to me, “Why don’t I pray?” It seemed like such a simple thing. So I kept the phone in my pocket and started to spend the time praying. What a difference. In my morning devotions I never have enough time to pray for all the people I want to. This gave me an opportunity to pray for extra people and situations and to specifically worship. The drone of the bus was perfect to focus on the Lord and pray through the scriptures I had read earlier.
So the next time you find yourself with some “time to kill” why not pray? The rewards will be excellent!
