Why Do It?

Jesuit Joe Simmons, found himself busy, so busy that for praying he had no time. At least, he recalled, “I didn’t see how adding prayer to my already busy life could possibly improve it.” His
desire led him to persevere in prayer as well as the rest of living a busy life.

I still ask myself, What does it take to pray well? Or even more simply, that most brutally honest of questions: Given all the pressing business in life, why pray?

He both posed those questions and begins answering them at The Jesuit Post. He offers concrete suggestions.
