I’ve been praying the rosary for the better part of two years at this point, excluding a few short periods of lack of discipline. I gradually began praying the Divine Office, and I am currently praying all of the hours.
However, I find that I’m spending almost all of my prayer time meditating on the mysteries and scripture, and almost no time interceding for my protestant family’s or atheist best friend’s conversions. Not to mention all the other things in our lives that require prayer, the dignity of the unborn, and world and church leaders. Then right down to the simple things such as the growth of relationships and safe travel.
How does one balance all of these important aspects of prayer? Is there a way that people have found to incorporate these into the Liturgy of the Hours perhaps, or is the answer trying to find even MORE time to set aside?
I feel like the Lord is stirring up in my heart to pray for too many things at once. How can I deal with that and find time to pray for everything? I fear that it’s only going to get worse as I enter my last year of a difficult engineering degree this August, and my non-religious commitments swell.
