Life of a Sister Missionary part 2: Morning Prayer

After the dreaded wake up, the day begins with prayer. 3 Nephi 18:18-19 reads "18 Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, ye must watch and pray always lest ye enter into temptation; for aSatan desireth to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.  19Therefore ye must always pray unto the Father in my name;"  When the day begins with prayer, we are able to avoid temptation.  It starts us off on the right foot.  As a missionary, we consecrate our day to the Lord.  Nothing begins until we say a prayer.  We pray more times than I can count.  We pray before we leave, before we go in to a lesson, twice during the lesson, after the lesson to thank the Lord, before we eat, etc., and end the day with a prayer.  The day becomes the Lord's.  It invites the Holy Ghost to be our 3rd companion.  I know that the Holy Ghost can be a companion to anyone who seeks him, who seeks the Lord.  James 1:5 aIf any of you lack bwisdom, let him ask of God, that cgiveth to all men liberally, and dupbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
