Prayer is the substance

Everything I do in life is ultimately not enough. I'm always left aching. Career, home, photography, design, writing.... they're sugar snacks; they give you a hit, but it soon wears off. Prayer is the substance, the real deal. It always leaves me calm, satisfied and at peace. What a gift it is. Now when I get some free time I look at all my usual options and increasingly choose prayer. Its just a more profitable use of my time. "Pray without ceasing" the apostle wrote (1Thess 5:17). Yes indeed.
