"My voice shalt thou hear in the
morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto
thee, and will look up." Psalm 5:3
Rise and Pray To
Start Your Day Before your hectic day begins with its noise and
numerous distractions, there is usually a calm that is
uncommon to any other time of the day. There's a peaceful
prerequisite for entering into the prayer closet with Christ.
Christ, Himself, set this example for us when He rose up early and
Morning is the first step to the list of
"things to do" planned out the night before. Morning is a
wonderfully private time where intimate conversation and
gentle responses can take place between you and God. This is a
time to listen to the very heart of God.
Some of you, like
myself, work at night and so our morning is actually in the
evening. However, this is our morning, our wake-up call to prayer
to begin our new day also. When we begin our day talking with
God intimately, we will go out into the world and face our
daily tasks more easily. For a prayer of faith, sent up from
the heart, will surely be heard, and the Lord will be with us
throughout our day.
Oswald Chambers said, "Get an inner
chamber in which to pray where no one knows you are praying,
shut the door, and talk to God in secret. Have no other motive
than to know your Father in heaven. It is impossible to conduct
your life as a disciple without definite times of secret
prayer." Allow Prayer to Start Your Day ~ EVERY DAY!
