Praise the Lord!



I used to start to wake up, lay in bed, try to wake up, get the fog of sleep out of my head first, get my thoughts to going and then pray. Well, I decided a couple weeks ago that I was going to start praying as soon as I was awake, before even getting out of bed. Seeing as well, sometimes I aint so awake and thoughts are a little jumbled, most of the times it is a simple prayer. I usually pray quietly, God can hear our thoughts as well as our words. Usually just a simple prayer of praise and thanks.

It really has helped me. I still pray more a while later, after fully awake, usually after reading a bit in the Bible but the practice of praising Him before I really do anything to start the day has made my days better. Give it a try. Don’t wait till YOU are ready to pray, offer up a simple prayer of praise and thanks, as soon as you are awake. He allowed you to wake up, praise and thank Him for that if nothing else.

Lord, I praise You and thank You for the blessings You give me. For giving me another day to serve You. Help me be a better Christian as I go through my day and help me be a blessing to someone.


Just a simple bit of praise and thanks to start the day. I hope all have a blessed day.
