Real peace is permanent

My daily prayers start each morning at 3:00 a.m. When I am praying for peace, these words of Jesus provide the mainspring of my day: "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" (John 14:27).

One of the defenses I have cultivated against fear is spiritual understanding. And gaining this understanding has come about through my setting aside enough time for Bible study and prayer. During these times, I quietly and unhurriedly think through ideas from the Bible and from Mary Baker Eddy's writings, especially Science and Health. This study provides the solid spiritual foundation I need for my day.
