71 – Morning Prayer/Evening Prayer – Intention on the Spiritual Journey

“It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening.”  Psalm 92:2

This past week I came across a blog post by Mark D. Roberts in which he asked, “I wonder what would happen if you were to take Psalm 92:2 very literally. What difference might it make in your life if the first thing you did when you got up in the morning was to proclaim God’s unfailing love, and the last thing you did was to proclaim his faithfulness?”

Whether we call it “fixed hour prayer,” “The Daily Office,” “Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer” or some other name, it is about recognizing the truth the Psalmist spoke many years ago.  It is “good” when we take time during our day to direct our attention and words to God.  It is about finding a way, a practice, that organizes our day, not just around our job, our tasks, our errands, or our favorite TV shows, but around God’s call on our life.

What frames your day?  What do you want to frame your day?
