Pray always

Image result for where can you pray?

Last June, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against student-initiated, student-conducted prayer at public high school football games, it seemed like yet another setback for Christian believers.
In one sense, it is quite discouraging, although some have wondered whether a football game is an appropriate place for something as sacred as prayer. But a [Campus Journal] devotional is not the place to discuss issues of constitutional law. Instead, let's focus on all the places we can pray, rather than complain about the situations where we can't.

When we start to develop that list, we see that we have lots of opportunities to pray - in school (e.g., before that chemistry final), at home, at church, outside, inside, with friends, alone. The Supreme Court did take away that 30 seconds of prayer before a football game, but that still leaves a lot of time.
