Prayer is the best way to start the morning; it helps us to start our day with the right focus. When our day is focused on God, our ever-changing circumstances will not seem so daunting. And when we remind ourselves that Christ is with us and that our lives are for His glory, we will step out our door with our minds on God first and then others. With our minds on God and others, we will think and walk more humbly and we will be more open to the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
“Prayer is a spiritual journey. Just as a journey from your present location to the other side of the country requires that you have a plan to reach your destination, you need a plan to assist you in your spiritual journey of prayer. Prayer is your personal communication with God. Since this is your spiritual destination every day, you need a plan to help you reach your destination effectively and consistently.” -Ronnie Floyd
