Prayer doesn’t have to be long

Some softwares and WP themes provide reading time estimates for the posts, based, one supposes, on some average figure of words per minute. They do this, apparently, so you’ll know ahead of time how long of a read it will be.

In today’s Believing Prayer, I set a one-minute reading time when linking to it on my Hubzilla spot, the more to encourage people to click and read and pray. (OK, so maybe it’ll take two minutes to read.)

Years ago, a book was published called One-Minute Manager. It purported to help managers act decisively. Though one’s spiritual life cannot be contained in one-minute prayers, neither are they inappropriate.

Prayer doesn’t have to be long. It does have to be sustained.
