We should not wait until the end of the day to pray or connect in a particular way with the Lord. Learn about the benefits of starting your mornings with the Holy Spirit.
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock." Matthew 7:24
Each new dawn provides us with a unique opportunity to strengthen our faith and hope. Sometimes, we wait until the end of the day to pray or connect in a special way with the Lord.
However, in this article, we will explore the benefits of beginning each morning in communion with our Savior, entrusting each awakening to that universal healing energy that emanates from Him.
Just as many people perform a physical exercise routine upon awakening to energize their bodies, we can get a dose of spiritual energy by feeding our hearts with the word of the Lord from the beginning of the day.
Morning prayer and reflection on a passage from the Bible can fill us with the spiritual strength needed to face daily adversities in a way that is aligned with God's will.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1
Morning prayer also brings us the healing power of God's love. When we feel exhausted or discouraged, taking refuge in prayer tightens our bond with the Lord and we experience His magnificent healing power.
We feel His hand touching our heart and an incomparable relief sweeping through our whole being. That is why incorporating the routine of prayer into our lives is essential to keep us connected to the source of love and healing.
In addition, spending time alone with God is essential to strengthen our relationship with Him. Every relationship thrives on communication, and our relationship with God is no different.
If we trust in the Lord, love Him and value His counsel, we must take the time to cultivate and strengthen that relationship through prayer.
"Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" Matthew 4:4
Morning prayer also helps us to stay on the Lord's path. In our spiritual journey, we often face obstacles and challenges that can divert us from our faith.
However, when we take time each morning to pray and seek God's direction, we ensure that we are on the right path.
We feel as if the Almighty's divine hand is resting on our shoulders, giving us the satisfaction of knowing that we are doing the right thing and that, with His help, we can overcome any obstacle that stands in our way.
"In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?" Psalm 56:4
Beginning each day with prayer and reflection on God's Word not only fills us with spiritual energy and healing power, but also strengthens our relationship with the Lord and assures us that we continue to move forward on the path of faith.
It is a routine that connects us to the source of divine love and wisdom, giving us the confidence and hope we need to face whatever challenges come our way.
