When Adam Burpee’s high school football teammates rush to nearby water coolers in the afternoon heat, he watches and waits. On a normal day, in a normal month of his senior season, the 17-year-old would take the opportunity to hydrate, but with the Muslim holy month of fasting underway, he won’t have any food or drink until after sundown — at least two hours after the end of his practices. It’s not easy, he said, especially with August and September temperatures that have often crept up to triple-digit levels.

Christian and Jewish faithful will begin to observe their respective holy days, with observances of Lent, Purim and Passover taking place all over the world. What does the Bible teach us about entering these holy days with a sense of prayer?   Pray first, then take action. Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, advised: “Go first to God, then to man as God directs.” The advice is simple: Pray first, before you do anything in the outer. The pattern of praying first before acting can be found in the Bible.

Four days ago, I woke up and imagined I was having the most glorious of breakfasts - eggs, beautifully crafted pancakes and waffles, fresh whipped cream, hash browns and all the butter and toast I could eat without getting sick. Except I wasn't. Instead, I washed and chopped celery, kale, spinach, two Granny Smith apples, half a lemon along with ginger and shoved them all down a juicer that most likely hadn't seen the light of day since 1999. The noise of the juicer, a vibrating racket that sounded like a raccoon stuck inside a heavy-duty lawn mower, echoed throughout the house and into the neighbor's yard.
