The Bible in the Morning

The Bible is a book that tells a story. The story the Bible tells is God’s story. So the Bible is not written by God as a theology book, it is written to tell a wonderful story. So in the Morning enjoy reading God’s story. So enjoy this animation about morning prayer and Bible reading.

Set the Direction with Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer Sets the Direction for the Day.

A great Bible verse is Mark 1:35, “and  rising in the morning long before day, he went out and went away into a desert place, and there prayed“.  The Lord Jesus spent time in the  morning in prayer to get himself in alignment with God, the Father.  Jesus also prayed that the direction of the whole day would be in the Father’s will, purpose and direction. His morning time set the purpose and direction for the whole day.

From the context of this passage we can discern that Jesus probably prayed in the region of the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel. The above picture was taken from another boat on Sea of Galilee.

How do we know Jesus prayed this way? Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven“. This is a portion from the familiar Lord’s Prayer.

Here is an awesome morning prayer time animation video.

Morning time is an awesome time to connect with God in the Bible and prayer.

Just before the day gets started, take time in the morning to connect with God, the source of our life and our strength. He is the one to strengthen us through the whole day.

Consider these encouraging Bible verses on prayer in the morning.

Psalms 55:17—“Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.

Mark 1:35—“Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.”

Jesus really liked the morning time for prayer and Bible reading.

Just before the day gets going, the crazy things start coming,  worry, threats, coffee not ready, stresses come, the emails come, a software update, a software bug, the twitters come, furnace stops working,  Facebook is calling  and then the other billion things that fill a day.  Take time in the morning before other crazy things to connect, relate and talk to God the source of our life and our strength. He is the one to enlarge us, prepare us and strengthen us through the whole day.

Consider these wonderful super encouraging Bible verses on prayer in the morning.

The morning time is the best time to connect with God. Lets all concerns and fears be ignored. Just come to God with prayer, Bible reading, devotional reading, or anything that inspires you to touch and contact God. Some mornings can be difficult because of things that just bother us. Life is full of anxieties and things that just upset us. Some concerns just do not go away.  Right in the middle find a way to pray what God is praying. Don’t fret, just pray. Spending time with God helps us trust Him.

Psalms 57:7
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and give praise.

Morning Prayer

Psalm 88:13 But, I, unto thee, O Yahweh, have cried for help, And, in the morning, my prayer will confront thee!  The morning is the best time to spend time reading the Bible and praying.

Prayer and reading can set the day in the correct direction. The best time to pray is in the morning.

Prayer is a relationship with God that comes from spending time with God. The best time is in the morning before 50 thousand other things distract us. Morning time sets the day in the correct mode.
