"And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples." Luke 11:1
In having a conversation with people about prayer, one of the things you hear most is-- I don't get to pray. What do you mean by- you don't get to pray? They mean they don't get time to pray because they are too busy, have too many other demands on their life and time, they just aren't able to pray. Newsflash: it isn't about "getting to pray", it is about "making time to pray". Another newsflash: the enemy of your soul will make sure you don't get to pray. He will send every distraction and every excuse as to why you can't pray.
When you say that you don't get to pray, it sounds like you are helpless to do anything about it. It sounds like you have no control over the situations that hinder your prayer life and prayer time. This isn't true. You have to make the time. You make time for everything else, why is prayer (your communion with God) any different? If you want to go somewhere, you schedule everything else around it. If you need to leave earlier than usual, you set your clock for an earlier time. If you want to stay up and watch a movie you force yourself to stay awake. If you want to go to an event out of town, you will make the hour or two drive.
We do the things we really want to do and we don't let anything stand in the way. You made time to read this. You made time to go to your job. You made time to go on a trip. You made time to go to the grocery store. You made time for a hobby. Why can't we make time for prayer? It is because it is not a priority in our lives!! If it were, we would do it. We would make sure we "get to pray". We wouldn't let anything stop us. We would reschedule whatever we had to do to include it. We would get up earlier if need be. We would do whatever it took to make sure we got the time.
Have a great day. If you aren't "getting to pray" it may be because it isn't a priority in your life.
