'Good Morn & Good Night' - Moses' Style!

MPj04120620000[1] " Good Morning":  (Numbers (NAB) 10) 34 And when they set out from camp, the cloud of the LORD was over them by day.35 Whenever the ark set out, Moses would say, "Arise, O LORD, that your enemies may be scattered, and those who hate you may flee before you."

A beautiful morning prayer by a man who had a deep personal relationship with God. The prayer should remind us in the  morning that our daily life is a Spiritual Warfare and that we too are on an Exodus with a destination. Lets be assured of the Cloud of Divine Presence which travel with us as the day begins.

MPj04066330000[1]"Good Night"  36 And when it came to rest, he would say, "Return, O LORD, you who ride upon the clouds, to the troops of Israel."

And that's the night prayer of Moses with a heart full of gratitude towards the dear Lord who travelled with them each moment of the day in the Cloud above their heads in the scorching heat through the desert.  Lets me thankful too as we say this prayer at the end of the day with Moses -  thankful to a Lord who is Emmanuel!
