This video by Daily Effective Prayer addresses the issue of praying first thing in the morning. This video will effectively guide you through the process of daily prayer as a way to get your day started off properly, focused on God. The Bible explains that it’s important for believers to begin their day in this manner. As it states in Mark 1:35, “And rising very early in the morning, while it is still dark, He departed and went out to a desolate place, and there He prayed.”
In the scripture mentioned above, the “He” mentioned is none other than Jesus. Consequently, through this verse, we learn that even Jesus sought God’s guidance in prayer first thing in the morning. With the prayer linked above, you can daily walk through your morning prayer with guidance, ensuring your morning is committed to prayer and seeking God.
Admittedly, there is no rule that you must read your Bible, pray or complete a devotion first thing in the morning. Some people just aren’t morning people and do better praying and reading their Bible later in the day. However, in general, since life has the tendency to get busy, it’s best to do your prayer and devotional time first thing in morning, so you don’t end up getting too busy to fit it into your day.
Praying early will also help you set your day on the right path and remind you of your commitment to follow God and His commandments throughout your day, no matter what you may face.
