In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3, NIV
Do you pray first thing in the morning? Is He your first thought?
If not, try experimenting for the next 21 days by thanking Him the minute your eyes open in the morning. Praise Him with your first thoughts. Then, pray in the car as you drive to school. Pray the moment you arrive on campus. Pray when you walk down the hall. Pray when you enter your classroom or office.
Research suggests that it takes 21 days to form a habit. And this habit is worth the effort because God always listens to our prayers. It’s a promise.
Lord, give me the discipline to seek You each morning, expecting that You have good things in store for me, my students, and my school.
