Last night I talked with a group of young adult Catholics about prayer — ways to pray in the midst of daily life with all of the activities, pressures, and responsibilities that any given day might hold. We talked about how prayer is not about those moments that we set aside to be with God, but it is a habit of being with God, that is, making one’s whole life a prayer. How do we do this, especially when life can get kind of hectic?

What are some practical ways that you try to cultivate this sense of making your life a prayer? How do you practice Saint Paul’s invitation to “pray without ceasing”?
