Get Your Morning Praise Fix
While I try to get into the Word first thing in the morning, there are some mornings that I hit the floor ALREADY behind!
So when I am starting off my day at a run; I turn to praise music to get my thoughts centered and myself in gear.
My next stop is to grab a cup of coffee, my bible and my 365 Pocket Morning Prayers devotional book.
I find the short devotionals are a great way to get my mind settled and my heart ready to dig deeper into the Word.
Each day has a devotion and then a short prayer. It is set up to go through it one day at a time but I found that often the prayers did not line up with what was happening in my life. Because of this, I found the topical index useful and I just looked up a subject and use the prayer for that day.
As the prayers are related to the topic being discussed, they may not have applied directly to my needs, but they certainly inspired me to pray about others and their situations.
Each morning when you arise, take a moment to talk with God about the day ahead. Ask Him to prepare your heart so that you can be ready to face any challenge that comes your way. 365 Pocket Morning Prayers can guide this time of life-changing conversation and help you express your needs and concerns to God. Don’t worry about what the day will bring. Instead, release your troubles and concerns into God’s care by reading and meditating on the prayers featured in 365 Pocket Morning Prayers. Begin your day in joyful anticipation, trusting that God is in control of your life and wants only the best for you.
I think this devotional book could be a good source of information and support if you are looking for something specific..perhaps to minister to a friend in need. Having the right words doesn’t always come easy and the printed prayers along with the scriptural references would be helpful when sending a card or note.
What about you? How do you get into the Word when your day is jammed packed?
I received the 365 Pocket Morning Prayers from Tyndale as a member of their Blogger Program.

Turning out of the music BEFORE I turn on the computer sounds like a good idea. Maybe it will help me “recalibrate” my morning and get a better focus on the Word.
