Pray before Answering
The Father has sent to us a Counselor- the Spirit of Truth- who teaches us all things (see John 14:16, 17, 26). As we stay sensitive to God’s leading, He will direct us. If we pray before speaking, the Lord will keep us from over committing our time, and from misleading people.
Jesus took time to listen to the Father before speaking, God will also give us “a word in due season” for somebody (see Proverbs 15:23), if we listen for His input before we give what we may think is a right answer. God will give us the right words to say if we expectantly listen for His direction before we speak.
1 Corinthians 9:26-27
Excessive sleep causes the downfall of many good plans. You can set the clock to get up early and pray, but your flesh is not going to help you get up in the morning. Your body will nearly always beg for more sleep.
Don’t let your flesh rob you of time with God. Aim for the higher goal, and wake up with your alarm to enjoy the best minutes of your day.
