The Morning Prayer

Whenever I try to trace the reasons for a bad day, I am almost always led to one prime cause: the neglect of prayer, especially the morning prayer.

For me, morning prayer means just a 5-to-10-minute prayer of thanksgiving, praise, offering, and petition, ending with a short silence.

I used to pray longer when I have the luxury of time... nevertheless, there is no doubt about the importance and power of the morning prayer for me, no matter how short it is; it somehow anchors the entire day in God's Will and Love.

"But I cry to you for help, O LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you." (Psalm 88:13)
