Prayerful Start: In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice.

Prayerful Start

Today’s Scripture: “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning, I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”

– Psalm 5:3 (NIV)

Opening Prayer:

Heavenly Father, as we begin this new day, we turn our hearts and minds to you. May the words of Psalm 5:3 guide our morning prayer. We lay our hopes and concerns before you, trusting in your wisdom and grace. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Reflection:

Mornings offer a sacred opportunity to start our day in communion with God. Psalm 5:3 beautifully reminds us of the importance of beginning our day in prayer, with hearts open to God’s guidance and provision.

  1. Morning Prayer: Begin your day by setting aside a few moments for prayer. Find a quiet space where you can focus your thoughts on God. Imagine His loving presence with you.
  2. Laying Your Requests: Reflect on the hopes and concerns you carry in your heart today. These may be personal or for the well-being of others. Lay them before the Lord, articulating your thoughts and feelings. Be honest and sincere in your prayers.
  3. Waiting Expectantly: As you conclude your morning prayer, wait expectantly. Trust that God hears your voice and is attentive to your requests. Have faith that His guidance and provision will unfold throughout the day.

Journaling Prompt:

Write in your journal or notebook:

  • List the specific hopes and concerns you brought before the Lord in your morning prayer.
  • Reflect on how this practice of morning prayer makes you feel. Does it bring you peace, hope, or clarity?

Help us carry the peace of this morning’s prayer with us throughout the day, knowing that you walk beside us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Final Thoughts:

Starting the day in prayer sets a positive tone for the hours ahead. May the words of Psalm 5:3 remind us of the power and beauty of morning prayer. As you go about your day, carry with you the assurance that God hears your voice and is with you, guiding you in all that you do.
