"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark." Mark 1:35

 

Jesus knew that seeing God first in his day, sets the foundation of a day - in God. When we place our morning eyes on God, he gives our eyes sight on great strength in our day.

 

5. Jesus prayed to His Father


"Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be your name" Matthew 6:9

 

Jesus knew who he was talking to, do we? God tells us that the name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous can run into it and are safe (Prov 18:10). Do we believe this?

 

 

6. Jesus asked for protection


"And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one" Matthew 6:13

 

Praying to be delivered from what has not already hit, prevents your feet from getting swept out from under. Jesus teaches us to pray preemptively, and for good reason.
