Finding Time for Christian Prayer at Work
Part of the Christian Prayer For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Incorporating a habit of Christian prayer at work can be difficult if you work full-time. You add prayer time to your workday, however, by following these tips:
Pick a dedicated prayer time that avoids the rush of the day. If your schedule permits, get up early and regularly spend time in prayer before going to work.
Whether you go by car, bus, or subway, praying during commute time can be an ideal way to transform what is usually dead time into quality moments with the Lord.
After you eat, spend the rest of your lunchtime in prayer.
When praying at work, close your office door or take a walk around the building.
If you don't pray at work, then don't turn on the television, DVD player, or computer at home until after you're finished with prayer time that evening.
Don't let work or any other activity become more important than being still with God.
Don't wimp out on prayer on weekends. Set up a different weekend schedule for prayer that works on days that you aren't in the office.
