In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. - Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
Recently I read a report claiming that getting up an hour early, taking things slowly, and having a good breakfast is the best way to begin the day. Starting the day in a rush can cause stress levels to rise.
I find that spending time with God in the morning...
Time spent with God is time well spent.
Those who feel rushed in the morning
Respond by posting a prayer.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
