I was talking this morning with Doug about what I could use for Faith-Lift Friday. He showed me his favorite verse, although he prefers the King James version which we don't have here.

Psalm 5:3
"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation."
I thought it was a great verse because its exciting to wait and see what God can do throughout the day. I thought it was really a positive way to think about your day.

I asked Doug why he liked the verse so much and now I like it even more. He said he likes it because so many people focus on praying before bed when your day is done when you should be putting your prayers before God at the beginning of your day. Wouldn't you rather rely on God during the stress of your day than requesting it when the frustration has already set in?
