Daily prayer prevents burnout

Our true identity is spiritual; it doesn't wear out. But we need to know this, every day!

After I had answered a telephone call late one night, sleep eluded me. Although it was only four o'clock in the morning, I decided to begin the day as I usually do by praying for myself.

I've found that turning to God immediately when I wake gets my day off to a good start. Acknowledging God to be the only Mind of man, the source of all true thoughts, establishes my day on a spiritual basis. It prevents concerns left over from yesterday or anxieties about what today may bring. I've learned that unless antagonism and worry are quickly brought under control, they can drain our mental and physical energies.
