Pray without Ceasing

I’ve been meditating on 1 Thess. 5:17 lately: “Pray without ceasing.” Try as I might to maintain a continual attitude of prayer, I get distracted by the million other things that vie for my attention. Consequently, I often lose sight of that goal.

Yet my days are sprinkled with enough mindless tasks that it’s easy to pick up the conversation with God wherever I left off, provided I make a point to do so. Some of my favorite multi-tasking opportunities include praying while:

  • folding laundry
  • climbing stairs
  • washing dishes
  • nursing babies
  • riding bikes
  • taking showers
  • falling asleep

When and where do you squeeze in extra prayer time? Please share. I’m eager to add to my list!
