Holy Retirement

I found the following prayer on one of the morning Bible apps I use. I absolutely love the line “holy retirement”. I think I’m going to use that. Since I no longer work due to health issues, there is no reason why I can’t focus on my spiritual studies.

He who lives without prayer – he who lives with little prayer – he who seldom reads the Word – he who seldom looks up to heaven for a fresh influence from on high – he will be the man whose heart will become dry and barren; but he who calls in secret oh his God – who spends much time in holy retirement – who delights to meditate on the words of the Most High – whose soul is given up to Christ – such a man must have an overflowing heart; and as his heart is, such will his life be.
