Keller: Start your day with morning prayer

Published 12:01 am Saturday, March 24, 2018

The Bible challenges us to seek God early before we start our day.

When speaking to groups, I usually ask them how many really believe there is a God.

The response is always the same. Almost 100 percent in any group say they believe in God. Then I ask how many, knowing there is a God, pray to Him daily. That percentage drops down to maybe 50 percent.

Most of those who acknowledge praying admit they pray at night before bedtime. I then suggest that they consider praying in the morning and seeking God before the start of what might be a challenging day.

That could make a difference in how they react to any situation.

Last week, someone gave me the following prayer titled: The Difference.

I believe it would make a big difference in anyone’s life.


I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day.
I had so much to accomplish
that I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me,
and heavier came each task.
“Why didn’t God help me?” I wondered.
He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty,
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak.
I wondered why God didn’t show me.
He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence;
I tried all my keys in the lock.
God gently and loving chided,
“My child, you didn’t knock.”
I woke up early this morning,
and paused before entering the day;
I had so much to accomplish
that I had to take time to pray.
