When daylight breaks and we awaken once again we need to start on our knees, thanking our Lord for life. Each new day is a new beginning, a new chance to let Jesus Christ shine through us, a new chance to help others, a new chance to draw closer to God.

Pray at daybreak, speak with the Lord, not to Him or at Him, with Him. Jesus wants a personal relationship with each of us. The Lord is not a distant God who watches you and does not get involved. No, the Lord wants to know you, wants to share your troubles, wants to alleviate your pain and take away your sorrows. He also wants you to talk with Him about your victories, rejoice with Him in your good times and remember and love Him.

Once you have had your conversation with the Lord you are now ready to start your day. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, you are now prepared to glorify the Lord with your words and actions. Go forth as representatives of the Lord, mirrors that reflect His face to a weary and troubled world. Bring His joy and His peace into your life and the lives of those around you.
