Psalm 5:3 (5:4 LXX)

In the morning You shall hear my voice;
In the morning I will stand before You,
And I will watch.

Encouraging Words...

One of the things that I have been doing since I converted to Orthodoxy is my morning prayer rule. It is a time to start each day with prayer and reading of the scriptures. It is not a mandatory thing, but a choice. A choice to do as the psalmist echoes here, to come into the presence of our Lord and speak with Him. A choice to spend more time getting to know Him and His teachings through the written words and the teachings and traditions of those who have gone before us. A choice to look to Him for His guidance throughout the day. Glory be to God!
