Pray and Watch
“O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.” Psalm 5:3
The two words, “O LORD”, communicate a desperate need for God. If we do not recognize our need for God then our prayers become more mechanical and originating from the mind instead of the heart. Twice in this short verse, King David, says he calls out to God in the morning. The morning is a good time to set aside to worship, read His Word, and call upon His name. Nothing is too big or too small to bring before God. What are the unexpected circumstances that have crept into your life? Lift them before the Lord. What are your specific needs today? Bring them to Jesus. After you have prayed watch for God to work, open doors, and make provisions. He is faithful.
- Heavenly Father, how wonderful it is that You invite me into Your presence every morning. Strengthen me to set aside adequate time to seek You and the faith to watch how You lead in love and wisdom.
