Thought of the Day August 2, 2017 Begin with prayer

By 9:54 AM

" Whenever you begin any good work you should first of all make a most pressing appeal to Christ our Lord to bring it to perfection." (St. Benedict) What would happen if we would offer a short prayer to God whenever we begin a project or an activity? Would it sanctify our effort? Would this practice help us to keep Jesus consciously in the forefront of our thoughts and actions throughout our day? On the other hand, what happens when we don't do this? The difference should be obvious. Like anything new, it will take discipline and practice before this will become a healthy part of our life. Why not start now?
