Begin with Prayer

"In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there."
Mark 1:35

If anyone had a reason to sleep in and skip prayer time, it was Jesus. Days filled with healing and casting out demons, teaching in the synagogue and preaching to the crowds, feeding the thousands and calming storms. His schedule would put any of ours to shame. But Jesus understood the importance of getting up early to spend time alone with God the Father before starting His day. "Look no man in the face till thou hast seen the face of God. Speak thou with none till thou hast had speech with the Most High" (Spurgeon). Take your cue from Jesus. Begin with prayer.
