“My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer to You, and will look up.” Psalm 5:3.
So fit and useful is morning devotion, it shouldn’t be omitted unless it is absolutely necessary. If our circumstances will allow us this privilege, it is a bad sign when no part of the morning is spent in prayer. If God finds no place in our minds at that early and peaceful hour, He will hardly be thought of during the busy day. If the benefits of the morning do not soften us, we can hardly expect the heart to melt with gratitude through the day. Let a part of the morning be set apart to devotion; and to this end we should fix the time we get up, so that we may have an early hour at our disposal.

Happy is the person who gets into touch with God by real fellowship before anything else has an opportunity to engage his or her attention. Someone has said, we do not need to pray at night when we are not going to do anything but sleep. But in the morning the difficulties and struggles of life confront us and we need equipment for the day.
