Prayer Bursts

As you go about your day, offer quick bursts of prayer–a quick word of blessing, a short petition, a confession.  When you see the news pray, “Thy kingdom come” at the screen.  When you pass a person on the street pray, “Lord, bless her today.”  When you think some disparaging thought of someone else say, “Lord, have mercy.”  Keep your prayers short and let them mediate your interactions with the world around you.  Find one hour early in the day to really focus and practice prayer bursts and then try to continue the practice through the rest of the day.
