In my attempt to finish papers after papers in the fastest way I think possible, there were times when I would find it hard to pray. And whenever the Holy Spirit reminds me to pray, my mind would wander left and right about the pile of essays that I need to do.

God won’t ask us about the number of worldly championships we have won. He won’t even ask us about the sport we play or which university we represented during college. We won’t be able to boast our identity of being a student-athlete to Him.
