Do householder devotees need to attend the temple morning program daily to be surrendered?

From Avatari Chaitanya P:

Whenever I think of 18.66, the only worry I have is whether Krishna actually considers me surrendered. Devotional service is a vast unlimited ocean and because of so many limitations and conditionings, I am only able to go so far. I have to draw the line somewhere regarding how much I can do. In addition, I am visibly short on several counts expected of me. Srila Prabhupada expected his followers to attend mangala arotika at Bhramha Muhurta every day. That is far from feasible for me. SP expected us to attend Srimad Bhagavatam classes every day. Again a far cry for me. At the time of Srila Prabhupada, most of ISKCON was a fully engaged community family. As a person who has a full time job, I often get the question of how Krishna (and Srila Prabhupada who is non-different from his in intentions) must be thinking of me. Prabhu, it will be great if you address some of these doubts in some future articles.
