“It is our wisdom and duty to begin every day with God. In the morning we are most free from company and business, so we should give him fresh thanksgivings and fresh meditations on his beauties. In the morning as we prepare for the work of the day, let us commit it all to God.”—A Method for Prayer by Matthew Henry

In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. (Mark 1:35 NASB)

In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice;
In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch. (Psalm 5:3 NASB)

But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength;
Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning,
For You have been my stronghold
And a refuge in the day of my distress. (Psalm 59:16 NASB)

But I, O Lord, have cried out to You for help,
And in the morning my prayer comes before You. (Psalm 88:13 NASB)

O satisfy us in the morning with Your lovingkindness,
That we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. (Psalm 90:14 NASB)

Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning;
For I trust in You;
Teach me the way in which I should walk;
For to You I lift up my soul. (Psalm 143:8 NASB)

I rise before dawn and cry for help;
I wait for Your words.
My eyes anticipate the night watches,
That I may meditate on Your word. (Psalm 119:147-148 NASB)

The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23 NASB)

Pray Now or LaterI know from experience that if I don’t begin my day with prayer, it probably won’t get done. I ask myself, “How important is my relationship with God, really? What I am revealing about myself when other things take priority over spending time with Him?”

It is a good thing to let prayer be the first business of the morning and the last at night. Guard yourself carefully against those false, deluding ideas which tell you, ‘Wait a little while. I will pray in an hour; first I must attend to this or that.’ Such thoughts get you away from prayer into other affairs which so hold your attention and involve you that nothing comes of prayer for that day.” A Simple Way to Pray (1535 AD) – Martin Luther

I can either send God a message that communion with Him is my highest priority or that it’s not all that important. Either way, a message gets sent. It’s my choice!

“You would have suffered eternal death, had he not been born in time. Never would you have been freed from sinful flesh, had he not taken on himself the likeness of sinful flesh.
