In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
There is something powerful about starting our day with our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus. Whether you wake up before the sun ascends from the horizon or when it’s high the high sky. Whether you wake up perky and cheerful or groggy and grumpy, you get to choose the first thing you will do.
Will it be to turn on the news, check your email, or scroll Instagram? Or will it be to tune your heart to God’s voice?
In Psalm 5, David declares with confidence that God hears his voice. We can have the same confidence. We can trust that whether we whisper or weep or shout or praise, God hears us. Like an attentive parent always listening for their children’s voices, so God is eagerly waiting for the sound of our voices. He loves it when His daughters call out to Him.
So let’s follow the psalmist’s lead today and speak to the Lord. Let’s tell God what we need and wait expectantly for Him to answer.

This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! I try to remember to start my day with this. I am not always successful, but eventually I get there.
Holy Father you know the weariness and woundedness of my soul and the health issues that are causing much anxiety and worry. I sense an invitation to step away from life, sit at your feet and focus on my health but there are many obstacles to overcome. I need Your help, Heavenly Father, please show me the way. In Jesus Holy name I pray. Amen
Just prayed for you Rebecca

Abba Father, You hear the prayer of Rebecca. Please send your healing touch to her body. Take away the anxiety & worry. Give her faith that will help relieve her worries. Guide her on the path you have laid out. AMEN
what happens when you call and Heaven is silent?

On my drive to work I listen to Christian music. Trying to get those words into my head & heart. That way when I’m a work feeling down (dislike job) I can hum those words over & over. That helps remind me that God is ultimately in control of ALL my circumstances.

Yes it good to hear God hears your voice. I have sign up on my kitchen cupboard. That a friend from my Church printed out for me it is so true. It says “Christ is the centre of our Home, a Guest at every meal, a Slient Listener to every conversation” That also tells me that saying I have on my kitchen cupboard that a friend in my church did out for me that God hears my voice all the time. So we have to very careful what we say at all times. Do as Ephesians 4 v 29 says ” Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.” Especially the unsaved. That verse tell us in that no corrupt word means no bad language saved or not saved. As God hears all. Only good words are to come out of our mouths. Like the kids song I was taught at Sunday School when small. It is appropriate even for us the saved today as Adults. It is ” Be Careful Little Eyes What You See it goes on to use toungue as well as other body parts like Hands and feet. It says in it because there is a Father up above who is watching. That is so true God is watching. You get the proper version on YouTube. Just type in “Be Careful Little Eyes What You See” it will come up on YouTube. So we have to be careful with our voices and also use them to thank God for everything he gives us. Like the day he gives us to enjoy. As someone said. This is day the Lord has made Psalm 119 v 24. We thank God for that. Thank you for today’s reading. Keeping you all in prayer.xx Dawn Ferguson-Little xxxx

Lord you know all Rebecca is going through. You are bigger than all her problems and health problems. Let her feel you so ever close to her. I pray you take away the way she is feeling right now. I pray Psalm 103 verse 3 over her now it says “Who forgives all your iniquities Who heald all your diseases” Help Rebecca to remember that. Know you see what she going through and that you hear her prayers. I ask this in your precious name Amen.

Lauren, I pray you will feel God’s Mercy, Peace, and Care over your life. Even when you can’t hear Him, He is at work. He knows you intimately and wants the best for you. He cares for you because He love you. Even when you think He is Silent He is working on your behalf. Psalm 27:13-14
Still waiting for the Lord to heal the brokenness in our family that seems impossible
Thank you for this word today. My heart has been heavy with needs that I keep mulling over in my mind, analyzing and dissecting. “But only one thing it needed . . . ” I hear Jesus gently say. I’ve written Psalm 5:3 on the opening cover of my prayer journal, where I will see it before work, before workout, before the day begins. Thank you for this gentle reminder.
