Let it be [the inner beauty of] the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, [one that is calm and self-controlled, not overanxious, but serene and spiritually mature] which is very precious in the sight of God. 1 Peter 3:4 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I cannot begin my day without prayer. No matter what other matters are pressing down on me, I do not do anything before my morning prayer (unless the house is on fire of course). It is my special time with my Beloved and is precious beyond all others to me. Once or twice I foolishly did go without morning prayer and it was as if an important part of me was missing. Never again do I want to go through that.
Every night before bed I spend time in prayer with my Beloved. The reward is always a beautiful nights sleep. I cannot close my eyes without it. It is oh so very precious to me. So precious in fact that I cannot get to sleep without having that conversation.
Once a week I spend a day in prayer with my Beloved. It is oh so very precious to me. We talk of the previous weeks events and of our love for each other.
You know the value of prayer: it is precious beyond all price. Never, never neglect it Sir Thomas Buxton

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Pryyand (God is my friend) for blessing me with the opportunity to spend as much valuable time with You. Thank you that You are always there and are always willing to both listen and to speak so freely with this adoring child of Yours. I adore You in the name of my big brother in whom I deeply cherish Jesus Christ. Amen
May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
