And now your priest says that you must pray.
But not all prayer has to be hour long stints (as good as that might be) or on your knees (as helpful as that might be) or in a quiet room (as conducive as that might be) or very formal (as much as that might be an aid.) Intense and meaningful prayer can be a few simple sincere words. So, yes...we should pray every day and with great fervor.
When you are in love, it is absolutely great to have the evening or the day to spend with the person of your dreams. But when that is impossible how reassuring it is – how much it makes your day to receive a text, “Just thinking of you.” “Love you.” “Can’t wait to see you.” Don't you think God would be satisfied with a "tweet" rather than nothing at all? Of course He wants to hear from you. If you cannot say a rosary or an akathist, send a hello.
We always seem to be too busy for God but God is never too busy for us. On the contrary, He always makes time for us, and is available for us 24/7, 365 days a year. We shouldn't look to God only in times o0f difficulty and trouble. We should turn to Him every day. A glance in His direction with a smile goes a long way in letting Him know that we love Him, are thinking about Him, and are happy He is a part of our lives.
