(By Patrick Mabilog) The Bible encourages us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). And a lifestyle of non-stop prayer starts in the morning. There’s something about praying in the morning that aligns us better. In a spiritual, mental and even physiological sense we seem more focused and clear with our day when we start it off with prayer. When it comes to praying in the morning, there’s no example better than Jesus. Mark 1:35 tells us, “And rising very early in the morning,

while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.” If Jesus made it a point to pray early in the morning, there’s no reason for us not to strive for us to do the same. Praying in the morning is a means of inviting God into our day even before it begins and allowing Him to go before us. Here are four things you can pray for in the morning as you approach God and offer your day to Him. CONTINUE
