I have been reading Psalm 5:3 a lot lately. This is a hard one for me. To rise early in the morning to pray and wait expectantly for God to answer. For one thing I am not much of a morning person. Most of the time it is praying in the evening and waiting for God to answer for me. I do try to get up in the morning but it is hard. I have never been a morning person. When I do manage to get up early before dawn and pray I like the quietness and I like hearing the birds singing. I do find that there is something special about praying early in the morning. But I find that I do most of my praying at night. I am a night owl. I love to pray at night. I of course pray through out the day also. They may just short little prayers to God when I am driving or doing whatever. 
When do you pray the most? Do you rise early to pray? 

                                                                    Listen to my cry for help,
                                                                      my King and my God,
                                                                          for to you I pray.
                                                   In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice;
                                                    in the morning I lay my requests before you
                                                                      and wait in expectation.
