Rush hour or prayer hour?

Do you, like me, drive to work on a congested freeway? Is “rush hour” merely a time for sitting in traffic? It can be tempting to feel anxious about getting to our destination on time. In the city where I commute, I listen to the morning traffic report to time my trip so I don’t have to sit in traffic for extended periods, but I have come to realize that even during rush hour, the commute can be a prayer-filled and stress-free time.

One morning, sitting in especially heavy traffic, I began to ponder how Christ Jesus was always praying. I’ve found this to be a seriously wonderful jumping-off point for my prayers. Many of the healings Jesus performed occurred as he prayed while he was moving along from place to place, even when he was thronged with crowds vying for his attention.  

We'd love to hear from you!
