In the November issue of Simple Grace, on-sale now, popular blogger and author Ann Voskamp shares some of her hard-won prayer wisdom. Here's a sneak peek!
“One of my favorite Scripture passages is 1 Thessalonians 5:16–17: Rejoice always; pray without ceasing. But trying to fit prayer into my busy life brought me to a painful realization,” admits Ann. “The only thing stopping me from praying was me. Something else always seemed to be more important. So now I set my alarm for my private prayer times at 9 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. It sounds like a lot, but I try to just make those hard stops for a few minutes of prayer—but sometimes, when things are really hectic, it’s more like a rolling stop!”
