"O satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days," Psalm 90:14.
There's something significant about meeting God in the morning. The Bible speaks of countless times where many rose early in the morning to be alone with God. As a result, many battles were won, God was heard audibly and in private, purposes and visions were revealed and instruction was given and carried out. The morning represents a fresh perspective and a new start. It's the perfect time to get alone with God - to hear Him, speak to Him. There's no better feeling than walking with God in the cool of the day. My prayer:
You are high and exalted, Lord. You are sovereign, merciful and just. There is no limit to Your word, no limit to Your love. You are abundant and faithful. Father, align our hearts with you today. Open us up and fill us with more of You. Dance with us in the cool of the day. We desire to be intimate with you, to love you and befriend you. We want to make You known with who we are and with what we do. Father, I ask that you purify us. We want to experience your presence. Come, Lord. Give us a new hunger and a new thirst for You. Awaken our hearts, eyes and ears to the things You're speaking about. And that fire that burns within us - may it be unquenchable. God, you know what's in our hearts and what concerns us, Father, carry any burdens we try to hold ourselves. Give us peace and free us from heaviness. Be the center of our worship and the meaning of our cause and affect. Tear down all our fears. Bring us into your light. Father, helps us to glorify you by being selfless and open to all you have for us. Give us a renewed purpose. Amen.
