“My Voice You Shall Hear In The Morning”

King David is a good example of one who sought the Lord in the morning.   He would seek to be with Him and to commune with Him as the day began.   He was indeed most conscious of God in prayer. What kind of prayer did he make to God?

  1. A thought-through prayer

“Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Psalm 5:1

The psalmist’s words said to God were specially mused over and thought through. They were not vain repetitive prayers. He prayed to God what he had meditated on. The challenge for us is to make prayers to God that are thought through carefully and are in line with His word.

  1. A focused prayer

“Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray…” Psalm 5:2

David was also most conscious of God as his sovereign King.   He was conscious that He was his covenantal Lord and a King who had absolute power and authority. He had a deep knowledge of God. It was this God that he focused on.

  1. An urgent prayer

“My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up. Psalm 5:3

There was a deep sense of urgency as David made this prayer to God. He knew that he needed the Lord to lead him for the day.   There were grave challenges that he had to face. Humbly, at the beginning of the day, he sought to look up to God with faith and urgency. Young people, let’s also learn to humbly look up to God with a sense of urgency each morning.
