Prayerlessness is deprivation to the soul

I wanted to know if prolonged failure to update my blog would give me hemorrhoids or temporary insanity, or, worst, a pimple in my nose so huge it looks like a ripened tomato. No. It doesn't.

However, experience tells me that a prolonged failure to have a daily, quiet prayer time with the Lord makes me terribly pained. It is a feeling that something is wrong--that something could go wrong. After all, not being able to pray is not being able to rush to the comforting arms of my Savior and be comforted by His timeless promises amidst the conflicting anxieties of my soul. It is to deprive the soul with the very air that nourishes it.

Do we take time to pray? Do we immerse ourselves in intimate conversation with God rather than talk about the latest gossip in town?

Prayer is to the soul as blueberry cheesecake is to the body.

Rice makes the analogy correct, too.

We need prayer to spur us, to jumpstart us, to energize us in our walk in the Highway of Holiness.

I was going to say,

"I don't quite agree with your analogy. Those saturated fats can clog up anybody's arteries. Eeeurgh."


Please tell me the specific times you're going online, so we can talk on YM.

I miss you and everyone sorely. :-(

Hehehe, Jef. Good point.

There was something wrong with my blog's comment mechanism, but I eventually fixed it. Good thing. :)
