Pray to start your day

Updated: Jul 7, 2023

Psalm 5:3

My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

God wants to hear our voice. Even though the Bible doesn’t specifically say we are to pray only in the mornings, there are many passages about people praying in the morning. Prayer will be the force that moves the needle of our life. If you put it into perspective, it just makes sense to pray before you start your day. The writer of this psalm is intentionally directing their prayer in the morning. They are saying God you will hear my voice in the morning. God hears their familiar voice, because they talk to God daily. We can come to God in the mornings and after we have made our request and given thanks for our lives we can go about our day with expectation of God keeping us. This verse gives us such a positive outlook on how prayer can set you up for a good day. Looking up is what our spirits thrive on. This doesn’t mean you will go around all day with your head tilted back and your eyes looking up. It means you can depend on God to be with you the rest of that day. Let us lift up our voices in the morning.


This morning, oh Lord, I lift up my voice to You. I want to come to You before my mind gets too cluttered with the activities of my day. I will direct my prayer unto Thee, and look up. Thank You God for the passages that speak to us about the morning. While it is quiet and my mind is quiet I can bring all my cares to you. I can ask for direction for my day. I can ask for protection, provision and peace to be with me throughout that day. I can look up. I can be encouraged knowing that You have heard my prayer and You will honor my steps. Thank You God that whatever time of the day I call on You, You hear me.
