Being with God at all times can be challenging to think about, but in practice it is deeply fruitful! St. Paul was clear when he spoke to the early Church about how to conduct their lives:
“We urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, cheer the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient with all. See that no one returns evil for evil; rather, always seek what is good [both] for each other and for all. Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 5:14-17
Far from mentally reciting the Rosary at every moment of the day, the practice of praying at all times is more about being aware of God's presence wherever you go and whatever you do. Bringing God into the center of our daily life not only gives us strength throughout the day (particularly during lent when we fast) but it also gives us peace. Check out the video below for some helpful tips at keeping God present with you throughout each day.
