What better way to begin one’s day than in communion with God? I know that mornings can be among the busiest parts of the day, especially if you do what I do too often – keep hitting the snooze button until I end up in a mad scramble to get out of the house on time. But I have learned that on those mornings when I get up early (having made a commitment the night before to go to bed at a decent hour), and spend some time with God, my day goes so much better.
David seems to have figured this out long before I did. He said, “My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up” (Psalm 5:3). In morning prayer you can find strength for today’s challenges and forgiveness for yesterday’s sins, because His mercies are “new every morning” (Lam. 3:22-23).
Will God hear your voice tomorrow morning?
