How to Easily Squeeze An Extra 973 Hours of Prayer Into Your Life

I Tie My ShoesI know what you are thinking, “How can you possibly “EASILY” squeeze in nearly 1000 hours of prayer/”  The answer…pray every time you tie your shoes.  Believe it or not, I just read in the April issue of Success Magazine that we spend 973 hours tying our shoes in our lifetime.
So, if you want to give God almost 1000 extra hours of prayer, just pray every time you shod those beautiful feet of yours.  I have always been a proponent of linking prayer to daily tasks, but never realized the cumulative effect. Imagine the thousands of hours you could give God, if you prayed while doing several common tasks:  brushing your teeth, taking a shower, etc.
I met a pastor who imagined he was putting on the whole armor of God as he dressed.  What a creative simple way to mentally and spiritually plug into God at the beginning of the day.
This puts a whole new spin on being clothed in Christ, doesn’t it.
Blessings to you as you interject a bit of holy into the mundane,
