Apologies, may have something to howl about since now anticipating Logos 4.5 Beta 1 in a couple weeks => 

F5 alternative is fsd shortcut (perhaps next to close all shortcut):

Seems clicking fsd opens one resource at a time.  After several resources open, could click close all, and start over (tail wag is optional).

Hitting FSD several times opened a Discipleship Journal article => logosres:sc-dj047;art=dj047.10

A ministry workaholic discovers a secret that transforms burnout to joy.



Inexperienced in the classic spiritual disciplines but not in the gift of gab, I chose to write out my prayers for that hour each day. Writing kept me focused and helped me concentrate on my conversation with the Lord, much like eye contact intensifies verbal communication.

I decided that my hours of prayer must come in the earliest part of my day, or else I was inevitably interrupted or distracted by phone calls, laundry, or family wanting something to eat. That meant, among other things, no more sleeping in. Since I had an appointment to keep, I had to plan for it on my calendar. Had this appointment been with anyone else —Friend, student, potential donor—I’d be there. So I kept this same frame of mind in planning my appointments with God. And on those inevitable days when things just didn’t go by the book, my decision kept me accountable—I either stayed up-late or holed away during midday. I was determined!

Results surfaced immediately. This hour of prayer transformed my days and produced such positive differences in my character and lifestyle that even my family noticed—and they’re usually the last to see your good side. Not only did I crack the dawn, but I could hold my temper in check, especially with my toddler. And there were the undeniable answers to specific requests and dreams that concerted prayer produces. Prayer was no longer a discipline that I considered boring or for the elderly. It was an attainable, addicting spiritual discipline I had never taken time to pursue.

But the most surprising manifestations of my hour in prayer were the personality flaws it uncovered in me, flaws that had been swept under the rug or shoved aside, weaknesses that had remained untouched by correction or conviction. What once seemed too painful or personal to deal with was now approachable. And when I exposed them to a loving Father and disposed of them with His help, my friendships blossomed, my unhealthy inclination to compete and compare diminished, and my self-image vastly improved.
