“In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”

Psalm 5:3

Life is a daily struggle. That means that as Christians we should never leave our home without putting on armor. Even before you step out, a lot of traps and evil plans would be waiting for you. We sometimes think that perhaps, we think like everyone else and that everybody wants the best for us. This is not the case for ‘our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm (Eph. 6:12).

Every day you step out as a Christian, your soul is heavily coveted by the devil. He wants it bad, so he can add you to his followers. He will entice you with things that are attractive to the flesh and cause you to sin. This is why we need to ‘Put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11)

Daily prayers are meant to bridge the gap between you and your maker each morning. It is about telling him that you still know he is in control of your life and your soul. It is about committing your day and your heart to him and committing your heart and family to him in case something should happen to you.

We must never be too far away from our Lord because the further we wander the closer we get to the devil. When a child walks in the dark with a parent, they hold the hand of the parent so they don’t get left behind or lost. The Lord is our shepherd and we should always be close to him and commit to him each day so we do not get left behind. Make it a routine to pray every day. This fortifies your faith and keeps you assured of his love and protection for you.

Pray without ceasing

1 Thessalonians 5:17

When was the last time you prayed? The Bible urges us to pray continually without ceasing. Do you do this or you only remember to pray when you are faced with a challenge?

As a Christian, it is very important to pray to God always. It doesn’t have to be a long prayer, you can take less than two minutes to say a prayer to God.

Prayer provides comfort, encouragement, and guidance through life. So you have to make it a point to at least start and end each day with a prayer.

What to pray for

Every day after our daily devotion, my husband asks me what are we praying for today? I know this is a question that a lot of Christians ask too.

Well, when trying to decide on a prayer for the day, you can say a prayer based on the scripture you read or the devotional message you received, that is if you want a prayer to say after your daily devotion.

You can also say a prayer based on your personal needs. So if you are sick, you can pray for healing. If you are in school, you can pray for knowledge and understanding. If you are worried, you can pray for peace. If you are sad, you can pray for comfort.

Daily Bedtime Prayer

Our daily lives should always have God in them. Speak to him no matter where you find yourself. Start the day with him and end it with him. He is the keeper of your soul. He is the protector of your light, so keep him in control.

Sometimes we believe that where we end up is a result of coincidence. Somebody wakes up at home, goes to work, and ends the day in a grave or an unfamiliar place. We do not know our future, if we did we wouldn’t take the steps that we do. This is why God needs to be in control. We have free will, yes but we need his council each day because he is the only one who knows the future.

2 Thessalonians 3:3 “But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.”
