One little thing nobody wants to be locked out without is a key. Cars, vaults, computer programs, etc, all need keys, whether metallic, or electronic. There are also keys to help you achieve greater efficiency at work.
Regardless of your creed, they will definitely change your life! Over the ages, they have been produced the highest levels of efficiency in those who diligently practiced them. They have also proven to be quite pivotal to the success of any enterprise. Let's discuss just one of them Prayer.
It was Alexis Carrel who said, “As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer.”
While some claim, “I don't mix religion with business”, they long for the supernatural when the expected becomes impossible. Note what some who have achieved notable things in life have to say:
- A man without prayer is like a tree without roots. Pope Pius xii (1876-1958)
- All men, Socrates, who have any degree of right feeling at the beginning of every enterprise, whether small or great, always call upon God. Plato (c. 428-348 b.c.)
- Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.
Fyodor Mikhaylovich Dostoyevski (1821-1881)
Through prayer, deadlocked board meetings will open up. Guidance will be revealed beyond what the well-presented CVs show. If you are having trouble with achieving your marketing target, or getting your unit to perform, or desire to remain steps ahead of your competitors, then do not neglect the efficacy of prayer!
The act of prayer is not difficult if you consider the results you require and desire. It simply means asking. Just ask God. I cannot fathom why anyone would rule out God in the name of secular workplace practice.
If you care to read Daniel 2:12-19, you will notice that the issue at hand was not a religious one. It was purely a matter of State. But for prayer, Daniel and his colleagues would have been decapitated like the other Babylonian wise men but for prayer. You simply cannot weather the storms of industry, politics or government and come out on top without the practice of prayer.
God bless you richly.
