40 Morning Prayers Before You Start Your Day
Psalm 5:3 “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
As Christians the most important part of our day should be the moment we spend having a deep communion with God through prayers. The prayers are best made very early in the morning before our day-to-day activities start.
As an individual or as a family, it is a great thing to wake up as early as 5 a.m. to talk to God and worship him. Through this communion we gain control over our day. As Ephesians 5:16 pointed out, the days are evil and it is not wise to start our day without first redeeming the time through communication with God.
Having a study plan for reading the scriptures and writing out prayer points to use as prayer focus are both great ways of ensuring that we are consistent in our early morning prayers. We use the study plan to study the scriptures and meditate as soon as we wake up and then we choose prayers from the list of prayer focus we have made.
Early morning prayers will be almost impossible if we aren’t committed to strict discipline and unwavering determination. Sleep early so you can wake up early. Set an alarm and make sure you get up from the bed as soon as the alarm goes off. Never find an excuse for missing your early morning prayers. Finding excuses will encourage you to be lazy and undisciplined.
In a society like ours where we are already burdened with too many activities, getting up very early after a stressful day may be almost impossible, so the matter of discipline and consistency is easier said than done. However the benefits of finding time to pray early in the morning surpass any stress or the sleep we cut short. We should remember these benefits anytime we feel too lazy or busy to remain consistent with our early morning prayers.
9 Benefits of Early Morning Prayers
When you pray early in the morning you:
