Morning Coffee - Knits, Prayers and Purls

January 19
Streams in the Desert
By Mrs. Chas. E. Cowman

Rubenstein, the great musician, once said, "If I omit practice one day, I notice it; if two days, my friends notice it; if three days, the public notice it." It is the old doctrine, "Practice makes perfect." We must continue believing, continue praying, continue doing His will. Suppose along any line of art, one should cease practicing, we know what the result would be. If we would only use the same quality of common sense in our religion that we use in our everyday life, we should go on to perfection.”
I thought this morning’s devotion was very apropos in light of my sock knitting project. It makes me wonder:  Do I put as much energy into my prayer life as I do into my knitting life? Do I seek the same level of perfection in my worship as I seek in my knits and purls?   This will be some good food for thought while enjoying a second cup of coffee.

"Men ought always to pray and not to faint."
Luke 18:1
