Appointments to pray

“Don’t pray when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees.” Corrie ten Boom

If you are not familiar with Corrie ten Boom, she was a dutch girl who was taken into the Nazi death camps during WWII.  She survived however her dear sister did not.  The legacy of her life was a living message of forgiveness, and of prayer.  While she could have stayed angry, unforgiving, and have chosen to have a seared counscience, she chose the greather thing, to forgive those who treated her horribly, and to show the world a living example of Jesus and his love. 

She offers great advice… if we don;t schedule time for prayer we will not be likely to do it.  So pencil in time… perhaps only 10-15 minutes, but spend that time praying.
