Praying to Keep a Tight Mainspring

"A man once owned an expensive Swiss watch. He discovered that it lost a few seconds every twenty-four hours. He took it to the watchmaker and explained the problem. The watchmaker said, ‘Do you wind the watch regularly?’ The man exclaimed, ‘Why, sir, I wind it the last thing every night, before I retire.’ The watchmaker said, ‘There’s nothing wrong with winding the watch at night but make sure you wind it in the morning. With a tight mainspring it will be able to stand the shocks, bumps, and jarring it’s exposed to during the day’s activities.’ Christians need to pray frequently. They need to have a tight mainspring wound by prayer that will protect them from the shocks, bumps and bruises of everyday life."
