The last few days, I’ve started going to a church at lunchtime and having a bit of a pray.
Having been on close personal terms with Jesus for some time, prayer is not a new thing for me. But praying at lunchtime is.
What I want to write about is one of the unexpected outcomes of these little spiritual sojourns.
Namely, a more productive afternoon.
When I return to work after lunchtimes, I find I’m refreshed, refocused and re-energised.
Having taken my eyes off work for a bit, I come back to it with fresh eyes. Which I guess I would if I just went for a walk. But I’m also more motivated. You could even say I’m happier.
So it actually benefits my employer for me to pray at lunchtime. Which makes me wonder if companies should have prayer rooms. Because not everyone has a handy, quiet, open church around the corner.
I’m not sure how you calculate the efficiency of this idea: rise in productivity against cost of an extra room. But it’s a thought.
