Good idea! Sow in believing prayer early if you can.

"The men who have done the most for God in this world have been early on their knees. He who fritters away the early morning, its opportunity and freshness, in other pursuits than seeking God will make poor headway seeking Him the rest of the day. If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, He will be in the last place the remainder of the day." ~ E.M. Bounds

Some days I do a lot better..early..than on other days. How about with you? No condo at all..but I really do wanna apply this: " ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Today went okay with prayer and He loves me just the same (not sure why..), but I think I'll pause and go get alone with my first-love again while I'm still fresh. : ) I do want Him and His will more than to make any impact with others......though I know that's pretty much a by-product of simply seeking Him. Matthew 6:33

Won't say their last names or cities where they live, but I've been praying for and corresponding with Samir, Danladi, Arjun, Ivet, Naya, Solero, and Sasu who are over in Ghana and in the 10/40 window part of the world (feel free to join me for them if you like. Some are still investigating the truth of the Gospel at his point - Cristal is not yet born again spiritually (see John 3:3), and Govinda just wants a closer walk with Jesus. I do too). 

P.  Dear Lord, please bless, touch, comfort, strongly provide for, spiritually and physically strengthen, and uniquely minister to my dear friends over the pond and stateside, both online and off-line, so that we each can better worship You and edify one another for Your Jesus' Name. Some still don't have a relationship with you - please speak and save them Word of God. Amen. Thanks Lord.

Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well. Ecclesiastes 11:6. (1.) We live in a world filled with peril and uncertainty - it's good to pray earnestly and sow both day and night! Your friends need what God can do through you as you obey Him. (2.) Each believer can only sow from what he or she has received and has. The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits (2 Timothy 2:6). You and I in Jesus can only take them as far as we ourselves have gone spiritually. By faith we impart what we are. (3.) Who among us can reap an abundant harvest if get uber-weary and we fail to sow upwards in prayer and praise or outwards in sound Bible ministry? "Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary."
