Daily [Photo Hunt]


When I went to the doctor recently, he reminded me to drink more water daily. I have been trying to do it, I told the doctor, but I always forget---and I need to make it a habit. Like most people, it takes a lot of effort for me to establish daily habits like exercise, drink more water, or write a "to do" list.

It's no different with prayer. Prayer, like most things in life, needs to become a habit to work for us. It took me a long time to develop the habit of praying. I am not religious and I don't actually pray the "usual" prayer, but I do "talk" to God on a regular basis--every night before I go to sleep, every morning before I drive to work, and a few times during the day---"grappling with life in Jesus' name". It gives me daily comfort.

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.

I know what you mean about establishing new routines, I really need to make a huge effort to change even small things

Someone says it takes 30 days of daily practice before the habit (good or bad) sticks and it becomes second nature :D

Water does miracles....heed it! :D IMHO, praying should not be just praying, it's a way of life as is what you believe/religion. Happy weekend Luna...I love this pic, so serene as if stretching one's view to eternity...

i am guilty of the same. :(

its hard if you need to do it every day and you're not used to the routine...it's hard at first but eventually we do it.

happy weekend! :)

Beautiful shot! I used to be better about drinking a lot of water daily.

This is a thought-provoking post. Thanks!

I think having a daily conversation with God is better than just praying. =)

My doctor said the same thing to me....I need to drink more water. It was not an easy task for me to do until I found a pleasant way to put more water in my system - I add a fair amount of alcohol in my drinking water.
My next meeting at Alcohol Anomynous is next Tuesday LOL.
