It is work!
"Prayer, genuine and victorious, is continually offered without the least physical effort or disturbance. It is often in the deepest stillness of soul and body that it wins its longest way. But there is another side of the matter. Prayer is never meant to be indolently easy, however simple and reliant it may be. It is meant to be an infinitely important transaction between man and God. And therefore, very often…it has to be viewed as a work involving labour, persistence, conflict, if it would be prayer indeed." - C.F.D. Moule
Did you notice that? Prayer = work.
So, when I am praying (on my six days of rest), I am actually working :)
Take care and have a blessed day. Don't miss the significance of prayer being a discipline and something that may require effort.
