“In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”
This is the fittest time to be with God. While the dew is on the grass, let grace drop upon the soul. Let us give to God the mornings of our days and the morning of our lives. Early morning is the fittest time for devotion, you being then fresh in your spirits, and freest from distractions.
The morning is a proper time for prayer, both to return thanks to God for refreshing sleep and rest, for preservation from dangers by fire, by thieves and murderers, and for renewed mercies in the morning; as also to pray to God to keep from evil and dangers the day following; to give daily food, and to succeed in business and the employments of life; and for a continuation of every mercy, temporal and spiritual. God should be served and sought in the first place
Who knows what a day may bring forth? Who knows what temptations may await? Who can protect himself /herself from the dangers which may encompass? Who can enable us to discharge the duties which are incumbent on us every day? Feeble, helpless, sinful, prone to err, in a world of temptation, and surrounded by dangers alike when we see them and when we do not, there is an obvious fitness in looking to God each morning for his guidance and protection…..
So remember the scripture says “In the Morning”……means regularly every morning every day…….Each Day\\……..It is not some days , one day ……..It says In the Morning…..So this means Praying in morning should be the First thing……Start your day with God.
“So not alone I will pray and lay my requests, but I also expect an answer from my Lord.”
Going well……. “I will look out,’ I will look out for the answer; after I have prayed, I will expect that the blessing shall come.”
It is a word that is used in another place in the Bible where we read of those who watched for the morning. So will I watch for thine answer, O my Lord! I will spread out my prayer like the victim on the altar, and I will look up, and expect to receive the answer by fire from heaven to consume the sacrifice.
How can we expect the Lord to open the windows of his grace, and pour us out a blessing, if we do not open the windows of expectation and look up for the promised favor.
By praying you seem to depend on God; by not expecting, you again renounce your confidence.
We should pray in faith, we should expect God to do something.So spend the first part in praying and lifting up requests to God — and then watch and see what God does in response.
Your prayer time every day is not just a “religious deed”, but the expression of the personal relationship you have with God — just like David’s. This is the root problem of a lot of people’s prayer time. They aren’t praying, because they really don’t have a relationship with God.
Take just a moment to pray, and ask God to help you make whatever commitments to Him that you need to make regarding prayer … especially that you would seek Him “in the morning.”
In His Glory…
