In the months of March and April, our church did a prayer emphasis we called "60/60/60." The idea behind 60/60 was to pray for 60 seconds every 60 minutes for 60 days - not too hard or complicated. We even encouraged our members to place alerts or chimes on their cell phones so that at the top of every hour they would have some type of reminder to pause during their day and pray.
The purpose of this emphasis was not to perform some type of ritualistic exercise in order to win God's favor. The true purpose behind it was to help our members learn how to connect with God through prayer on a regular basis throughout their day.
Any strong relationship whether it's your children, parents, spouse, friends, or God is dependent on open lines of communication. We must regularly "check-in" to see how things are going between us and them. The interesting thing that I discovered during the emphasis is that I found myself praying in between the regularly scheduled prayer times. This emphasis helped me spread out my prayer time throughout the day instead of a concentrated, one-time event after reading my Bible. Our walk with God is a continuous relationship, not a one-stop shopping experience.
