If you are a morning person, then I’m just a bit jealous of you. I try to be a morning person. Seriously, I do. But I don’t like to talk to anyone in the mornings for at least 45 minutes after I wake up. I’m guessing that makes me not so much a morning person. My husband is good with it; we’re perfectly happy not talking to each other for the first 45 minutes or so of the day.
But there’s one thing that changes my perspective each day- prayer. There is nothing like a morning prayer to get your heart in line with what God has for you for the day. I often fall asleep praying and I think it helps me to wake up praying- even though I’m not a morning person.
So on this Whimsical Wednesday, I’m sharing a morning prayer with you. Use it as your own, print it as a reminder, or save it on your phone. Whatever you do, pray a morning prayer- and see the difference it makes in your day.
I praise you for the gift of another day-
For your mercies new each morning.
My eyes are open and my heart is beating;
Each of those mean you have a plan for me.
This minute. This hour. This day.
I don’t know every step of your plan for today
But I know it will be for my good.
And I’m confident it will be for your glory.
Will you lead me, Jesus? I need you.
Will you order my steps, each one?
May your love flow through me
And may I embrace every opportunity
To share your love with others.
