more than prayer

People have been taught and heard that prayer is the most important thing and essential for the life of the Christian, as it expresses dependence upon God, and is sometimes overstated as being as important as breathing.. so we need to pray, we must pray, we need to pray often, we have to pray about everything.. but is it fair to say that all of life is about prayer? There are other obviously essential elements of life such as eating, sleeping, and working. The spiritual life is not isolated and separate from the whole of life, but in fact should and must permeate every aspect of life. All of life is spiritual. So how much prayer is enough? Prayer measured in time is probably never enough. But prayer as a lifestyle, I’d like to suggest, is being mindful and heartful of God’s presence whereever and whenever we are, and thinking and feeling as God would think and feel in whatever scenario or situation we are in life.
