One thing I've noticed over the last year since I got involved with the Community of Solitude that has changed. I have been praying the Office steadily for years now, and over the last year something has happened. I am no longer alone in there, in my private place inside where I pray. Jesus said that we should go into our secret places and pray. Now that secret place isn't all that private any more. It seems to be very populated with people - I pray, and all those people that I'm praying for come in with me.
That begs the question - what happens to all those people if I don't have enough time in my secret inner prayer place?
