Your Morning Prayer Discipline

As you begin your time with God, pause for a few moments and pay attention to your breathing. Take several deep, slow breaths and remember that you are in the loving presence of God.

Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD alone!

The Hebrew people were freed from slavery in Egypt and saved from Pharaoh’s army at the Red Sea. Through Moses God gave the people a choice whether or not they wanted to continue to live in relationship with him. They enthusiastically said yes. The one condition that God gave them was that God must be first in their lives. Nothing or no one else could be given greater priority. God has given us that same condition. We are tempted every day to let other people and things take God’s place in our life. At those times we can remember Moses’ instruction to the Hebrew people and join in an enthusiastic Yes! to God.

(Place your trust in God and speak to him, using this prayer or one of your own.)

Loving and faithful God, you led the Hebrew people from slavery to a promised land. Lead me from my sin and slavery into the promise of your love.
