Dusk, Dawn, and Noon

Psalm 55:16

The Hebrew people began their day in the evening, in the dark. 

They start each day with hope in the dark.

Prayer is all about that, calling upon the Lord who makes our darkness light, and doing that from the start of each day. 

Prayer is about calling his name and presence in the middle of our darkness, disappointment, dismay, dread, distress, depression, divorce, and death threatening experiences. 

It’s the invitation we send to God every part of the day to be with us.

That invite might be in writing in the morning, so we write the words to express our concerns to God and then perhaps we speak our prayers in the noon but when dusk arrives and the wrtining and talking are not help, the groaning and cries, utterance and deep wordless expression are just fine. 

What matters is that God hears us and that should comfort every praying heart. 

(See 1 Thessalonians 5:17, Philippians 4:6, Ephesians 6:18 )
