Chapter 2 » 2.32


There is no use trying to conceal how difficult it is to find time for private prayer in the congested schedules under which most modern people live. But at the bottom it is not a question of finding time … [but] of the depth of the sense of need and of the desire. Busy lovers find time to write letters to one another, often … long letters; although what really matters is not the length of the letter any more than it is the length of the prayer. In this life we find the time for what we believe to be important.

Douglas Steere, 1938
