"There are so many cracks in the day that can be filled with prayer. These might be prayers of intercession. We can carry a sick or dying friend with us through the day, gently letting the prayer lie just below the surface of our consciousness, ready to emerge in the 'empty' moments. Our daily prayer in the cracks might be triggered by the morning news report of conflict, catastrophe, and suffering. The big story this morning is a plane crash. I will let those people be with me today — the travelers who died, the few who survived, their families who are flying to the scene, the rescue teams sifting through the wreckage. They will fill the cracks today."
