Praying daily brings freedom

Years ago, I was going about my activities one day when it occurred to me that I hadn’t prayed in a while. Prayer had generally been a daily activity for me, although not necessarily at a certain time or about something specific. I had usually taken moments each day to think about God and His goodness or just to give thanks.

At first, I dismissed the thought. But a few days later, the same thought came again, and I felt impelled to resume my daily prayer. Sometimes I prayed to see progress and healing regarding a specific world issue or something in my own life, and sometimes I prayed to understand more about everyone’s spiritual nature as God’s creation.

Several weeks later, I was out running errands in my car when my eyes suddenly became clouded and itchy. To my right was a familiar parking lot, and I was able to turn in safely and park the car.
