This is a well heard sentence, and it is true that we so easily are overwhelmed by our every day life.
Our days are filled of events and it is sometimes difficult to add a few extra minutes to our time schedule, minutes we could have used for our prayer.
But a prayer doesn’t need to be long : it is quality which matters, not quantity. A few instants could be enough.
It seems rather as a question of choice and of priorities in our lives.
