In my personal experiment with prayer, I discovered something shocking today. Praying first thing in the morning works. I mean, I am alone, undistracted and focused. This morning I was also uncharacteristically non-sleepy. I think that the excitement about bold praying kept me awake.
So, the news flash is that praying early and first helps me pray well. Too bad that years of biblical and Christian heritage had not already made that point. I guess I'm one of those people who has to learn things for myself.
