“Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.” – Psalm 5:3 (NLT)
Do you meet with God in the morning before the busyness of the day? My journal time used to be in the evenings, but I now include my prayer time in the morning. Why? As the day goes on my mind becomes more “cluttered” with the busyness of the day and I find it more difficult to focus on my time with the Lord. Mark 1:35 tells us “Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray.” (NLT) How can we do any less?
Thank You for this special time of day when You and I can meet together to share before the day begins. Thank You for bending down to listen to me as I talk with You. You are such a loving Father and I am blessed to know that You are with me now and throughout my day. I ask for Your guidance and direction as I go through this day, and that Your creativity flows through me. May my to do list become Yours, and may I be a help to those who cross my path today for I’ll know that You have sent them my way. I praise You, Lord, for Who You are and I thank You for the blessings that You have sent to me. May Your will be done in my life today.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
