This is Your Wake Up Call!

Praycation 2013 – Early On Time!

Word for Today: Early

Read: Mark 1: 35

“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.”

Early Will I Seek Thee

As we begin our Praycation, I offer this early morning prayer:
“O God, Thou art my God. Early will I seek thee…” Psalm 63:1

O God, I come to you in the darkness of the morning
I come just as I am starting to hear the birds singing praise to you
I come before the phone starts to ring, before messages are texted or tweeted
I come to You, O God, before the flood of emails and voicemails
I come before I remember tasks left undone from yesterday
I come before the uncertainty of tomorrow becomes fear

I come before I try to live out my own plan
I come before temptation ripens
I come to You, O God, before competing voices can influence
I come before I can mistake my thoughts for Your voice
I come before I can remember all I want from you and all I want you to do for me

I come, early in this morning, to say I love You and I thank You for loving me
Thank you for giving me this day – now, I give it back to you: live today in me live through me love through me bless through me empower through me rescue through me give joy through me O God, I come to you in the darkness of the morning, like Jesus did, to make your will my will.

In His name, AMEN

Roderick Dwayne Belin

Let us Pray: We come early today so that you will speak to us, teach us, lead us and form us until we are more and more like you, in Jesus name, Amen.

True worshippers, let’s praise the Lord! Do not wait another moment. God has something to say to us now. Listen!

    I was behind, but I have caught up with Praycation 2013. I love this one “Early will I seek thee”!

  2. Rev. Cheryl Jones says:

    I love the early morning for all the reasons named in the prayer. This time fuels me for the day. And if I miss that set aside time for any reason it is telling throughout my day. It is “always darkest before dawn” means that we might also be in a dark place anytime of the day. Therefore, we must undergird ourselves with prayer BEFORE we find ourselves in the situations of the day.
