A Day Without Prayer
© 2006
by

Stephen A. Peterson


While on tour at Clowes Hall on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana, world renowned violinist Isaac Stern was asked by music students from the Indiana University School of Music how it is that he is one of the premier violinists in the world. Mr. Stern paused for a few seconds then responded: ďI have to practice each and every day. If I donít practice for a day, I know my performance the next day is not my best. If I donít practice for two days, my children can tell. If I donít practice for three days, my public and critics know it.Ē

In an interesting and reflective way, I believe this writerís presence with the other students to listen to Mr. Sternís reflections apply to my prayer habits. If I go a day without praying and reading the Bible, I feel as though I hear the voice of God wanting to talk to me but I do not reply in a friendly manner. Are we not supposed to have a relationship? Relationships are not truly relationships unless there in interaction between the parties. I also feel as though something is missing and not right even if I miss one day. If I go two days, people close to me and clients notice a negative change in me. And if go a third day without prayer and reading of the Bible, there are bound to be people I meet who will find me less warm and responsive than I would want to be.

Have you and your noticed in you what a day without prayer and Scripture in your day is life? What are you going to do about it? Prayer and Scriptural reading is a habitóthe best habit you can establish!!!!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
