During this month’s Catholic Academy we got a very memorable picture of just how easy it is to give just a few minutes each day to the Lord in prayer.
There are 24 hours in each day and 60 minutes in each hour so we started with 24 bags, each containing 60 balls.
Eight of those hours (480 minutes) are typically spent sleeping.
You’ll spend about an hour eating, and another 8 hours at work or school.
And finally, we spend the remaining hours playing and doing all the other things we need to do each day.
When we look at all of those 1440 minutes that the Lord gives us each and every day, giving 5 of them back to Him in prayer seems like the least we can do!
