Today is Monday, May 1, 2023, and we have been blessed with another day to fulfill our purpose and walk in alignment with God’s will for our lives. As we begin this new day, let us start with a morning devotion that will inspire us and set the tone for our prayer time. Let us also spend time in prayer, thanking God for His goodness and seeking His guidance for the day ahead.
Our morning devotion is taken from Psalm 5:3, which says, “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.” This verse reminds us of the importance of starting our day with prayer and seeking God’s guidance for the day ahead. It encourages us to lay our requests before Him and to wait expectantly for His answer.
As we begin this new day, let us take a moment to reflect on the blessings in our lives and the ways in which God has shown His faithfulness to us. Let us also take time to acknowledge any areas of our lives where we need His guidance and ask Him to give us the wisdom and strength to navigate these challenges.
