Busyness & Prayer

Sometimes we are so busy that we feel prayer is impossible. The demands on our time are too overwhelming.

“The incarnate Son of God could not meet all the needs around him, so what makes you and I think we’ll be able to meet all the needs around us? The incarnate Son of God had to say no to legitimate requests on his time, so why don’t we? The incarnate Son of God often withdrew to desolate places so that he could pray. Do we?”

Kevin DeYoung, 2010. Reflecting on Mark 1:35-39. Sermon here.
