Prayer: it's not that Sunday morning thing!
Abstract: Imagine... that I would ask one of you about what is important in his life. Then, when he is talking, constantly yawn, ask if he is almost done, if he can speak quicker so I can be done, ... Finally, ask him if he can give me $100 and quick, I need to go!
Do you think this is very rude? Very often, our relationship with God tend to look like that. If this is rude to my fellow human, how dare we behave that way toward God! We need to learn to listen to Him, to enjoy spending time with God, to have "quality time" in prayer.
We can not imagine that rushing through our prayer, rushing through our Bible reading are any kind of pleasing to God. In doing so, we break the first, fourth and second of the ten commandments (Ex 20)! It basically means that God is not our priority!
