Prayer is a conversation with God. Because our great High Priest Jesus has gone before us and torn down the veil separating us in our fallenness from God in His holiness, we can—upon confession of sin and profession of faith—walk right into the throne room of grace and have a private audience with the maker of the universe.
When you go to God first with all that is on your heart and mind, it reminds you that He comes first and it keeps you in perspective for the rest of the day. Here are six ways starting every morning with prayer improves your whole day.
In Bible times, names carried great significance and were said to convey the character of a person. This is true for all the names for God seen throughout Scripture as well. Each name reveals a unique aspect of who God is in all His vastness. Through prayer, we can remind ourselves of these truths. Not only will this help our souls connect with Him on a deeper level, but it will decrease our fears and increase our faith as well.
