Day 6: Starting on the right foot

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Listen to the voice of my cry, my King, and my God, for I will pray to You. You shall hear my voice in the morning, O LORD; in the morning I will direct my prayer to You, and will look up. (Psalm 5:1-3)

A heart that is intent on glorifying God must put Him first in all things. As we enter into a season of spiritual preparation, prayer, and even fasting, let's follow in the steps of the godly leaders of the past. They knew that all effective ministry and effective planning flows out of time spent with God. Of course, we can't always give God as much time in prayer as we would like, but we can all give Him the best of the time we do have. Let's be sure to begin each day with the Lord - after all, we only get one chance to start the day off right!

Lord, we determine in our hearts that we will begin each day, and each enterprise, with You. Help us to remember to invite Your grace and Your aid into every project and every undertaking.
