Pick a time and place everyday when you can get prayerful. For me it happens to be my morning commute on the New York subway.
Prayer is a habit. It’s a little like running, like going to bed at a reasonable hour, like eating decently, like remembering to write a thank you note, like saying something kind when that wasn’t really your first thought.
It’s funny, when we talk about habit-forming stuff, we usually mention the bad things—bad habits like cigarette-smoking, driving too fast, chewing with your mouth open, interrupting people, swearing. But the easiest way for me to get rid of one of those is to inculcate a good habit. Like prayer.
