A Surprisingly Easy Way to Pray Without Ceasing

“How can I pray without ceasing, like Paul says?” asked a She Blossoms reader on 5 Ways to Talk to God When You Can’t Pray. “I’m a single mom and I have to go to work, walk the dog, feed my kids and do the housework.

I couldn’t decide if I should call this Blossom Tip “How to Stop Wasting Your Life Doing Meaningless Things” or “How I Wasted a Day With the Devil.” As you can see, “meaningless things” won!
