Introduction 介绍
God love you and your family. 上帝爱你和你的家人。

God love your children, father and mother and me. 上帝爱你的孩子们,爸爸、妈妈和我自己。

God has amazing plans for us, and our family. 上帝对我们与我们的家庭有奇妙的计划。    

The plan is about love and blessing of God. 這计划是關於上帝的爱和賜福。

God want to love and blessing us. 上帝要爱和賜福我们。  

So God gave us his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. 所以上帝给了我们祂的独生子耶稣基督。 

If we believe in Jesus Christ we have everlasting life and take the authority to become the son of God. 如果我们相信耶稣基督,我们得永生,并得权柄,成为神的儿子。(凡接待祂的、就是信祂名的人、祂就賜他們權柄、作 神的兒女。約翰福音1:12)

That is the greatest blessing of God in this world. 这是神的最大福份在这个世界上。    

The blessing of God is to get eternal life. 神的賜福是得著永生。

The eternal life is to live in heaven with God forever. 永生是活在天堂与神永永远远在一起。 

And we live with God on the earth, that is the greatest blessing of God. 而我们能与神一同生活在地球上,这是神的最大的賜福。

Even though we live with God and in God we meet the difficult situation. 尽管如此, 我们与神一同生活, 和在神裡面,我们一起迎接困难的景況。

For example, frustrations, hardships, failure, sickness. 例如,挫折、苦难,失败,疾病。

So Jesus teaches us. 所以耶稣教导我们。

When you meet difficult situation or problems, ask me and then I will help you, and I will guide you and I will solve your all problems and you will get peace and happy in God. 当你遇到困难的情况或问题,求问我,然后我会帮你的,我会引导你,我会解决你所有的问题,你会得到在神裡面的平安与喜樂。

Jesus said through Bible follow my steps and my word. 圣经上耶稣说: “跟随我的脚踪,我的话。”  

So I will introduce about Jesus’ custom of prayer to all of you. 因此我将向各位介绍有关耶稣祷告的習性。

That will be help to your life of faith and the growth of faith. 这将會帮助你的信心生活和信心的增长。

I hope that this time is the greatest time for you.  我盼望這時刻, 是帶給你最大信心的時刻。
Those who love God love the early morning, because God like early morning. 谁爱上帝, 就爱上帝所爱的清晨,因为上帝喜欢清晨。 

Since God dwells in quiet and secret place and speaks quietly, 因为神在安静和隱密的地方住,用微小的聲音說話,those who want to meet God seek the quiet time and secret place. 那些想要朝见 神的人, 要寻求安静的时间和隱密的地方。 

Jesus also went to secret place early in the morning and prayed. 耶稣也去了隱密的地方, 在清晨祷告。

Jesus is the Lord of Dawn and the Lord of Dawn Prayer. 耶稣是黎明的主,是黎明祷告的主。

The typical tradition of Korean Church that is not found in other countries in the world is    the Early Morning Prayer Meeting. 韩国教会的典型传统, 是清晨祷告会, 在世界上, 沒有在其他国家发现。

The Korean Church was planted and grew up through the dawn prayer meeting.  韩国教会的建立與增长,是通过黎明清晨祷告会。        

Furthermore, the dawn prayer meeting contributed to the founding of the nation and its economic growth. 此外,黎明清晨祷告会, 貢獻了韩国的創建和韩国的经济增长。

However, one of the main reasons for the decline of the Church in these days can be found in the decline of dawn prayer meeting. 然而,近期教会走下坡,发现主要原因是黎明清晨祷告会下降。      

Therefore, it is necessary to establish the theology of dawn prayer and apply it to the gospel ministry as well as to the individual Christian life. 因此,有必要建立黎明祈祷的神学, 和应用到福音事工,以及个别基督徒的生活。     

As I think of this subject, I found it is best to learn from the early morning prayer of Jesus. 当我想到这个问题,我发现最好是从耶稣清晨祷告的学习。  

This led me to begin my preaching from Jesus. 这使我开始我的传講, 从”耶稣”講起。

1. Jesus, Seeking God in the Early Morning. 耶稣在清晨寻求 神。

耶稣的晨祷马可福音1:35-38)    次日早晨、天未亮的時候、耶穌起來、到曠野地方去、在那裡禱告。西門和同伴追了他去。遇見了就對他說、眾人都找你。耶穌對他們說、我們可以往別處去、到鄰近的鄉村、我也好在那裡傳道.因為我是為這事出來的。

According to the text, Jesus got up early in the morning. 根据這段經文,耶稣清晨起來。  

He rose up in the morning while it was still dark. 他在早晨起来时天还黑。

“Early in the morning” or “dawn” is regarded as important time in the Bible. “清晨”或“黎明”被视为圣经中的重要时刻。  

For the people of Israel a day begins from the evening and ends at the sunset (Jer. 23:32; Neh13:9). 对以色列的人,一日是从傍晚开始,到日落结束(耶23:32, 尼西米記13:9) 

This led them to think that a morning is a breaking the night. 这导致他们认为,一个早晨是打破了夜晚。     

The night shuts the sun and stops all the activities of life, but morning lets the all creatures begin to work with the rising sun. 晚上关上了阳光和生命, 停止一切活动,但早上让一切受造物与初升的太阳一起開始工作。

However, the morning does not come by itself.  但是,早晨不是自己进来的。

The sun does not arise by his power. 太阳不是通过它的力量昇起。        

Amos 5:8 says, 阿摩司书5:8说:“ He who made the Pleiades and Orion, and turns the deep darkness into the morning and darkens the day into night, who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out on the surface of the earth, the Lord is his name.”要尋求那造昴星和參星、使死蔭變為晨光、使黑夜變為白日、命海水來澆在地上的、(耶和華是祂的名)

According to Amos the Lord is the one who turns the darkness into the morning. 根据阿摩司书, 主是那位使死蔭變為晨光。

The Lord is the Lord of Morning and Evening, controlling the border of time as well as the length of day and night. 主是黑夜白日的主,掌管时间的边界,以及白日和黑夜的长度。  

And it also means that the Lord’s gracious providential activity is manifested in the morning in many cases. 而这也意味着主的恩典, 天赐的活动, 许多情况下, 表现在早晨。  

Jeremiah said that “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end. 耶利米說: 我們不至消滅、是出於耶和華諸般的慈愛、是因祂的憐憫、不至斷絕。

They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.”(Lam. 3:22-23). 每早晨這都是新的.祢的誠實、極其廣大。(耶利米哀歌3:22-23)   

Even in the fall of the nation and his kings’ being broken, Jeremiah said that the Lord did not stop showing his steadfast love and mercy every morning. 即使是在国家失敗和王的墮落,耶利米说,上帝并没有停止显示,每天早晨祂的慈爱和怜悯。

And Zephaniah said the Lord shows forth his justice every morning. (Zeph. 3:5). 和西番雅说,主,每早晨顯明祂的公義。(西番雅書3:5)  耶和華在他中間是公義的、斷不作非義的事、每早晨顯明祂的公義、無日不然.只是不義的人不知羞恥。

According these witnesses the morning is the best time to recognize and experience most keenly the hand of his providential love.  根据这些見证人, 早晨是最佳时刻, 最敏锐地认识和体验, 祂的天赐, 爱的手。

The Lord is the God of working in the morning. 主是在早晨工作的神。

The Lord threw the Egyptian forces of Pharaoh into the midst of the sea in the morning     (Ex. 14:24) . 主在早晨, 將法老的埃及军队扔入海中。(出埃及記14:24)  到了晨更的時候、耶和華從雲火柱中向埃及的軍兵觀看、使埃及的軍兵混亂了。

The Lord gave manna to the people of Israel in the morning before the sunrise at the         wilderness (Ex16:21). 在旷野日出之前,  神给以色列人嗎哪(出埃及記16:21)  他們每日早晨、按著各人的飯量收取、日頭一發熱、就消化了。

The Lord made covenant with his people on the mountain of Sinai early in the morning    (Ex. 24:4). 主清晨在西乃山与祂的百姓立约(出埃及記24:4)。摩西將耶和華的命令都寫上、清早起來、在山下築一座壇、按以色列十二支派、立十二根柱子。

The Lord began his war of the Conquest against Jericho early in the morning    (Josh. 6:12, 15).  主清晨开始了祂战勝耶利哥的战役。(約書亞記 6:12, 15)

約書亞清早起來、祭司又抬起耶和華的約櫃。(約書亞記 6:12)第七日清早、黎明的時候、他們起來、照樣繞城七次.惟獨這日把城繞了七次。(約書亞記 6:15)

The Lord conducted the war against Moab for Jehoshaphat early in the morning at Tekoa (2 Ch.20:20). 主在清早, 在提哥亞的曠野,  为约沙法进行与摩押的战役。 (歷代志下20:20) 次日清早眾人起來、往提哥亞的曠野去.出去的時候、約沙法站著說、猶大人和耶路撒冷的居民哪、要聽我說、信耶和華你們的 神、就必立穩.信他的先知就必亨通。

Even the judgment of God on the Sodom and Gomorrah was poured out at dawn  (Gn. 19:23-28). 即使 神對所多玛和蛾摩拉的审判, 在黎明時刻傾倒出来。(创世紀19:23-28)羅得到了瑣珥、日頭已經出來了。當時耶和華將硫磺與火、從天上耶和華那裡、降與所多瑪和蛾摩拉、把那些城、和全平原、並城裡所有的居民、連地上生長的、都毀滅了。羅得的妻子在後邊回頭一看、就變成了一根鹽柱。亞伯拉罕清早起來、到了他從前站在耶和華面前的地方、向所多瑪、和蛾摩拉、與平原的全地觀看.不料、那地方煙氣上騰、如同燒窯一般。

In Jeremiah’s preaching at the temple, the Lord spoke to Israel to rise up early but they did not hear. 耶利米在圣殿讲道中,主對以色列百姓說要早起,但他们并没有听從。 

The Lord is the one who speaks to his people early in the morning and teach them. 主, 是清晨對他們說話,教導他们的。     

So the Lord was, the people of Israel also got up early in the morning and waited for him to meet him.  所以主是, 以色列百姓也是清晨早起,等着祂,来與祂相會。

Jesus got up early in the morning. 耶稣清晨早起。

The previous verses of the text tell us that the evening at sundown people brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons and the whole city was gathered at the door. 之前的经文告诉我们,晚上日落時刻, 百姓將所有生病或被魔鬼轄制的人, 都帶到耶穌面前, 整城的人都聚集在城门口。       

Jesus healed them and casted out many demons. 耶稣医好他们,并趕逐出了许多污鬼。     

Jesus worked until late at night to be tired. 耶稣一直作工到晚上很晚, 甚是疲累。           

However, he got up early in the morning when it was still very dark. 然而,他清早起身時,天色还是很暗。

In the Proverb, poverty will come upon to the sluggard lying in the bed and saying, 在箴言,贫穷将临到躺在床上的懒惰人,说:

“A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest.” (Prov. 6:9-11) 懶惰人哪、你要睡到幾時呢.你何時睡醒呢? 再睡片時、打盹片時、抱著手躺臥片時、你的貧窮就必如強盜速來、你的缺乏彷彿拿兵器的人來到。(箴6:9-11)

and he is inferior to the ant. 他不如蚂蚁。  

The people of God rise up early in the morning and prepare for the days of sweaty work (Prov. 31:15). 神的百姓清晨早起,并为勞碌流汗的工作作預备。(箴31:15)未到黎明他就起來、把食物分給家中的人.將當作的工分派婢女。

Anyone who longs for the grace of God must go before his presence who works in the       early morning. 任何人渴慕神的恩典, 必须來到祂的面前, 祂早在清晨與你同工。

Jesus got up early in the morning and went to a quiet place. 耶稣清晨早起,去一个安静的地方。

Jesus went out from the inhabitant place to a desolate and quiet place. 耶稣出去, 从居民的地方到荒凉和安静的地方。  

He could have prayed and worshiped God in his bed room, but he went out to a lonely place alone. 他可以在他的臥房, 祷告敬拜神,但祂独自一人, 去了一个孤單的地方。

He taught his disciples how to pray in the Sermon on the Mount as this: 祂教导祂的门徒如何祷告, 在登山宝训說: 

“When you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”你禱告的時候、要進你的內屋、關上門、禱告你在暗中的父、你父在暗中察看、必然報答你。(馬太福音6:6)

According to his teaching, God is the one who is in secret. 根据祂的教導,神在隱密處。        

Thus he exhorted them to go into the upper room and (Korean translation) shut the door  to pray to God the Father who sees in secret.  因此,他鼓励他们进入”上面的房间”(韩文翻译)关上门向天父上帝祈祷, 父在暗中察看。

Jesus’ belief and conviction about early morning prayer was to go to the quiet place and meet God who sees in secret. 耶稣的信念,大约清晨祷告是去一个宁静的地方,满足天父上帝在暗中察看。

That led Jesus to seek the solitary place by himself. 这导致耶稣寻求自己孤独的地方。

The wilderness at the dawn of sunrise is the best place to listen to the Word of God and to pour out our heart to him. 在日出黎明的旷野是最好的地方, 聆听神的话, 將我们的心傾倒给祂。

God is the God of omnipresence. 神是无所不在的神。  

Therefore, we can meet him walking on the street or even in the subway. 因此,我们能够遇見祂走在街上,或即使在地铁裡。              

The problem is that our eyes and ears can not be concentrated on God because of noise and surrounding things of the cities. 问题是,我们的眼睛和耳朵不能集中在神,因为噪声和城市周围的东西。

It is a proper manner for us to seek the quiet place for the prayer that cannot be interrupted by the worldly noise. 这是正確的態度 : 我们寻求安静的地方祷告,不被世俗的噪声而中断祷告。

While we are praying, we can not receive the telephone simultaneously. 當我们在祈祷,我们不能同时接听电话。Jesus went to the wilderness to meet God. 耶稣到旷野去迎見神。    

He worked late at night but he got up early in the morning and did not meet any other man prior to God, the Father, 祂作工到深夜,但他清晨早起, 并没有在朝見父神之前見其他人,as if a child seeks first his mother after getting out of bed.  就好像一个孩子起床后先找寻他的母亲。

Jesus, Having Communion with God in the Morning  耶稣清晨與天父上帝交通

Jesus’ purpose to go out to the lonely place early in the morning was to pray. 耶稣的目的是, 走出去到偏僻的地方, 清早就是祈祷。   

Prayer is a meeting with God and having communion with Him. 祷告是与神相會, 并与祂交通。

In prayer we meet him, listen to his voice, and pour out our heart to make ourselves known to him. 在祷告中,我们與祂相會,听祂的声音,傾倒着自己的心去知道祂。

This leads us to say that the prayer is a dialogue with God. 这引領我们去说,祈祷是与上帝的对话。

The dialogue is the most important element in communion. 对话是在交流中最重要的元素

Through communion we come to share ourselves with each other and make our friendly relationship developed and accumulated. 通过交流,我们来彼此分享自己,让我们的友好关系发展和积累。

Without communion, no affection is found. 没有交流,感情没有被发现。

The relationship without communion is dead relationship. 没有交流的关系是死的关系。

We human being is created to have communion with God. 我们人类被创造是与神交流。

God made man to have relationship with him. 上帝造人與祂有关系。

In Eden God made Adam to respond to him when he called him. 在伊甸园上帝创造亚当, 回应祂, 当祂呼叫他時。

Man is not created to support himself. 人类受造不是为了供應自己。

Man was created to have relationship with God, the source of life and supported by him all the necessary elements and resources to maintain his life. 人类受造是与神,生命本源的关系,并供應他的所有所需要素, 和资源, 来维系他的生命。

It is like a tree receiving water and nourishment from the roots to bloom and produces its fruits. 就像一棵树从根部接收水份和养份, 开花結果。

However, unfortunately men cut the rope of relationship and departed from him and stop the communion. 然而,很不幸地, 人砍斷关系的绳子, 离开祂,并停止交流。

He chose death instead of life. 他选择了死亡,而不是生命。The core of communion is a dialogue. 交流的核心是对话。

For dialogue listening carefully the talk of his counterpart is more important than talking to him.对话在认真聆听对方的谈话, 是比对他说话更重要。  

Listening to the Word of God is also important in the communion with him. 听神的话,在与他交流中是很重要的。

One of the main reasons to seek the quiet place in the morning is to listen to the Word of God carefully. 在清晨寻求安静的地方, 其中一个主要的原因,是仔细地听神的话。

If the one side talk is a dialogue with God, there will be no need to find a quiet place to pray to God. 如果單方谈话是与上帝的对话,就没有必要找一个安静的地方,向上帝祈祷。

Since the Lord is the God of omniscience and omnipresence, he has a power to listen and   discern what we are saying even in the market places. 由于主是无所不知, 和无所不在的神,祂有权柄能力垂听和辨别我们说的是什么,即使在市场的地方。

The key point of prayer is to listen carefully to the Word of God. 祷告的关键是仔细聆听神的话语。

Jesus said, “I gave them the Words that you gave me.”(John 17:8). 耶稣说:“因為祢所賜給我的道、我已經賜給他們…….。” (约翰福音17:8)

When God gave him the Word to Jesus? 何時上帝將祂的话语给耶稣?

If we say in human way, it might be during the time of prayer. 如果我们人类的方式说,这可能是在祷告的时间。      

Not only he received the Word from God, but also he wants his disciple to ask God what they need. 他不仅从上帝得到了話,但他也希望祂的門徒求问上帝, 他们需要的是什么。

Thus he taught them how to pray. 因此,他教他们如何祷告。         

It is also necessary for us to learn how to go before the Lord with a proper manner. 这也是需要我们来学习, 如何在主面前行走, 以一个正確的方式。

We need to be dressed up to meet the King and we need to use the noble speech with the learned style. 我们需要穿戴整齊朝見国王,我们需要用高貴的說話, 以所学到的型態。

It is naïve to keep demanding.  这是天真的, 保持高要求的。     

Jesus seemed to wash his and be dressed up to meet the Father and knelt down in his presence. 耶稣似乎洗清潔和穿戴整齊,與父相會, 在祂面前跪下来。 

The communion is a bilateral dialogue. 交流是双向對話

One must speak and express himself as he listens to his counterpart. 一個人必须说话表达自己,當听聆他的对方時。    

 It is not personal and normal relationship only to listen and not to open his heart. 这不是个人的正常关系,只有倾听,而沒有打开他的心。          

Likewise we also should open our mind and talk whatever we want him known and ask what we want from him. 同样,我们也应该敞开我们的思想和谈话, 任何我们想让他知道的,與求问我们想从祂得什麼。       

Hannah told she pour out her soul before the Lord when she asked to stop drinking wine by Eli, the priest of the Lord who misunderstood her to be drunkard. 哈拿說她倾倒她的灵魂在主面前时,以利叫她停止喝酒,祭司误以為她是酒醉了。 

Here As if one pours out water on the ground, she poured her soul before the Lord. 在这里,好像一个人倒出水在地上,她傾倒了她的灵魂在主面前。

Hannah poured out her affliction, frustration, sorrow and bitterness before the Lord. 哈拿倾诉她的苦情,挫折,悲伤和痛苦在主面前。

She did not pour it on her husband but on the Lord. 她没有傾倒在她的丈夫,但是倒給主。

We cannot pray to anyone. 我们不能祈求任何人。

We can pray only to God who can understand our situation and has power to help us in need.我们可以祈求, 只有神能够理解我们的处境,并有能力来帮助我们需要的人。   

In spite of the love, comfort and encouragement of her husband, Hannah could not be satisfied, because he did not have an ability or power to solve her fundamental problems. 尽管她的丈夫爱,安慰和鼓励,哈拿不能满足,因为她的丈夫没有能力或权柄,解决哈拿根本的问题。

However, God can do it. 然而,神能做到。

God can do it because he is omniscience and omnipotent. 上帝能做到这一点,因为他是无所不知,无所不能。  

Since we have this faith, early in the morning we can go to him and pour out our heart and confess our love and ask his help. 既然我们有这个信心,清晨我们可以去, 傾倒我们的心,承认我们的爱,并要求祂的帮助。

It is not written in the text what did Jesus hear and what did he ask to God. 在經文中不是写著耶稣怎样聆听 ?和他怎么问神?        

But the following event suggests us that Jesus talked very important things with God. 但是,下面的事件向我们表明,耶稣谈到与神,非常重要的事。        

Jesus, Confirming His Mission Through the Early Morning Prayer.  耶稣,证实他的使命,透过清晨祷告

Jesus’ gospel ministry seemed to be successful from the beginning. 耶稣的福音事工,似乎从一开始就成功了。       

In Capernaum Jesus took an opportunity for honor and rich because many people crowded around him from early in the morning. 在迦百农耶稣把握一个机会,為尊荣和丰富,因为很多人在清晨围住他。

However, this success brought him a danger against his ministry. 然而,这种成功给他带来了对他的事工的危险。       

He had to choose one on the crossway between the way of medical doctor and that of preacher of gospel. 在医生的方式和福音传道者的之间的岔路口, 他不得不选择一个。

As a medical doctor he will be famous soon. 作为一名医生,他很快就会出名。  

His rich and glorious future will be secured in one place. 他丰富而辉煌的未来,将被固定在一个地方。 

However, the affliction and suffering are waiting for the life of itinerary preacher. 然而,传道生活的行程中,苦难和艱苦在等待著。

At this point Jesus chose the way of cross after the early morning prayer.  在这一点上,清晨祷告之后,耶稣选择了十字架的道路。

Jesus healed the sick until late at night, but many people gathered around him again from the early morning. 耶稣医治病人,直到深夜,但再次从清晨,又很多人围着祂。

They were miserable people that Jesus could never desert. 他们是可怜的人,耶稣從未冷漠他们。

If Jesus helps them, it will be the more good opportunity for him to get more fame. 如果耶稣帮助他们,这将是更好的机会,让他获得更多的知名度。

However, it seems to be a time of agony for Jesus. 然而,對耶稣而言,这似乎是痛苦的时刻。

At this moment Jesus went out to the quiet place in the morning and meet God. 就在这时,耶稣f清晨出去,到安静的地方,去见天父上帝。

Jesus confirmed his task on earth through the communion with God. 通过耶稣与上帝交流,证实了自己來到地上的任务。

Jesus said to his disciples waiting him to heal the sick , 耶稣对门徒说,病人都等着他去醫治。

“Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.”(Mk 1:38). “耶穌對他們說、我們可以往別處去、到鄰近的鄉村、我也好在那裡傳道.因為我是為這事出來的。”(马可福音1:38)。

Here Jesus makes his task and mission on earth clear. 耶稣清晰地表明祂在地上的任务與使命。It will be meaningful to help those poor and sick people to live a happy life. 这将有意义的帮助那些穷人和生病的人,过幸福的生活。          

That would lead him also to the meaningful life with respect and affection from others. 这将导致他也尊敬和爱戴他人,有意义的生活。

He could enjoy the typical life of ordinary people. 他可以享受普通人的生活型態。     

In that case he will have no need to wander around the every city of Palestine in order to preach the Word of God. 在这种情况下,他就没有必要走遍周围巴勒斯坦每个城市,为了宣扬神的话语。

There will be no affliction and persecution because of his ministry. 将不会有,因为祂的傳道事工的痛苦和迫害。

But he did not choose that easy way. 但他没有选择简单的方法。  

Jesus did not choose the way of pleasing man and the way of self-securing, 耶稣并没有选择讨人喜欢的方式,保護自我安全的方式,but he chose the way of God, the way of mission,     但他选择了上帝的方式,使命的方式, and the way of preaching the Word of God through bearing the cross. 宣讲神的话语,通过背起十字架的方式。

He chose the life of mission, rather than the life of ordinary man. 他选择的使命的生命,而不是普通人的生命。    

He saw the pity people before him now, but he saw further the people who are in need of the Word of God in the future. 祂现在看见祂面前令人怜憫的人 ; 但他进一步看到,將来他們需要上帝的話語。  

He found the historical and worldwide task through the dawn prayer. 通过黎明清晨祈祷 , 祂尋見历史和世界各地的使命。
There are many reasons for us to have time to pray in the morning. 有很多理由让我们花时间在清晨祈祷。

There are so many things waiting for our decisions to be made. 有这么多的事情 , 等着要做出我们的决定。

God is controlling our life. 神掌管我们的生活。    

We cannot live without his guidance and help constantly. 我们不能没有祂持續不断地指导與帮助。

We have to make decision for the marriage, getting a job, choosing the college, etc. 我们必须做出决定,为婚姻,找工作,选择大学等

At that time we must seek God in a quiet time at a quiet place.在那时,我们必须找一个安静的时间,在一个安静的地方,寻求神。       

Even though we know which way should be chosen, and we have enough ability and power to do, 尽管我们知道应选择哪种方式,我们有足够的能力和权柄选择去做,we must seek God and let him know it and ask his help and guidance. 我们必须寻求神,让祂知道,求问祂的帮助和引导。 

By doing this, we show our respect and fear of him. 通过这样做,我们将顯示我们對祂的尊重和敬畏。 

If not, it will be a despising and disregarding him as a controller of our life, the Lord of providence. 如果不是这样,这将是一个轻視的,藐視供應的主,作为我们生命的掌管者。

The Bible says for this kind of people as a scoffer (Ps.1:1). 圣经上说了这样的人是褻慢人。(詩篇1:1) 不從惡人的計謀、不站罪人的道路、不坐褻慢人的座位。          

He does not recognize God as the Lord of controlling the entire world. 他不承认上帝是掌管全地的主。  

 If anyone is Christian, he must live in the presence of God and ask the way of him and make a decision according to his   will. 如果任何基督徒,他必须活在神的面前,问神的方式,作出决定是根据神的旨意。        

Jesus sought God in the early in the morning and confirmed his mission on earth and made the decision of his way to go. 耶稣寻求神旨意,在清晨確证了祂來到地上的使命,并决定照神的方式去行。

Jesus, Leaving the Sick Behind in the Early Morning  耶稣在清晨,离开病人。  

Jesus did not go to the sick waiting for him after the prayer. 耶稣祈祷后,没有走去等待他的病人那兒。  

He said, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came out.”(Mk 1:38)“耶穌對他們說、我們可以往別處去、到鄰近的鄉村、我也好在那裡傳道.因為我是為這事出來的。”(馬可福音1:38)        

And in verse 39 Jesus actually went throughout all Galilee preaching in their synagogues and casting out demons. 而在第39节,於是在加利利全地、進了會堂、傳道趕鬼。(馬可福音1:39)  

After the morning prayer he left Capernaum and went to the neighbor towns. 清晨的祈祷之后,他离开了迦百农,去了邻鄉城镇。

This image and attitude of Jesus seem to be like a cold man, a man of heartless and merciless. 此情景和耶稣的态度,似乎是像冷漠的人,无心的人,无情的人。     

Obviously these people needed his touches of merciful hands and they came early in the morning before the daybreak. 显然,这些人需要祂怜悯的手触摸,他们清晨来到,黎明天亮前。   

But Jesus left them behind, because he wanted to proclaim his gospel in other cities too. 但耶稣離開了他们,因为耶稣也想在其他城市宣扬福音。

He wanted to do his task of preacher from God. 耶稣想做神所交付祂传講的使命。

The sick might have been very disappointed at his leaving. 病人可能對 耶稣的离去,感到非常失望。

Jesus might also have been very distressing to leave them. 耶稣也可能是非常痛心,不忍离开他们。 

It might not be easy for him to leave the people without giving them any help. 那不是很容易的,离开這群人,没有给他们任何帮助。    

He left them to go forward to the way of God given task controlling his heart. 他离开他们,上帝掌管祂的心,去走向上帝所給予的使命工作。     

For this decision and practical action, he might need a particular courage and power for such a man like Jesus who was full of love, pity, and mercy. 对于这一决定和行动,他可能需要特定勇气和力量,像耶稣这样的人,是充满爱,同情和怜悯的。    

We can guess that Jesus was bestowed the power and courage for decision through the morning prayer.我们可以猜测,耶稣的力量和勇气,所作的决定,是通过清晨祷告。

Thus, the hour of prayer is the hour of decision and also is the hour of empowering to control his heart and mind.    因此,祷告的时候是决策的时刻,也就是神掌管他的心思意念的时刻。

Jacob was named Israel after the wrestling with God at the riverbank of Jabbok in the       morning. 雅各得名以色列,是与上帝摔跤在雅博渡口,在清晨。  

He was afraid of meeting his brother Esau because of his sins against him 20 years ago. 他怕見他哥哥以扫,因为20年前雅各对以扫所犯的罪。    

Before he meets Esau, he met God and wrestled with him all through the night. At dawn Jacob became Israel. 雅各他遇见以扫之前,他遇到了上帝,并通过整晚上与祂摔跤。在黎明清晨雅各成为以色列。

Jacob became different. 雅各成为不一樣的人了。   

Later He said to his brother, 后来他对他的兄弟说

“For I have seen your face, which is like seeing the face of God, and you have accepted me.”(Gen. 33:10). 雅各說、不然、我若在你眼前蒙恩、就求你從我手裡收下這禮物、因為我見了你的面、如同見了 神的面、並且你容納了我。(创世記33:10)  

And he offered his blessing to Esau, 他提供自己的祝福給以扫    

“Please accept my blessing that is brought to you.” (Gen. 33:11). 求你收下我帶來給你的禮物、因為 神恩待我、使我充足.雅各再三的求他、他纔收下了。(创世記33:11)

Jacob experienced his change of name and personality through meeting of God at the river. 雅各經歷改变他的名字和性格,在通过河的渡口與神相遇。 

He gave his blessing to his brother as the successor of Abraham and Isaac. 他將他的祝福给他的哥哥,承继了亚伯拉罕和以撒。

No fear is found in him. 在他裡面没有恐惧。

He looks like the general who is returning from the battlefield with his victory and he was like a rising sun in the morning. 他看起来像是將軍,从与他的胜利战场返回,他像清晨升起的太阳。         

He is no more a coward trembling with fear on the bank of the river Jabbok. 他不再是一个懦夫,在雅博河的渡口恐惧顫抖。

Peter denied Jesus three times before a girl of the high priest and run away when his         master was in trial and crucifixion. 彼得三次否认耶稣,在大祭司的一个使女面前跑开时,他的主正在受审判和被钉十字架。

He returned to his old job of fishing of fish. 他回到了他的捕鱼的老工作。

He was spending the days of frustration and disappointment. 他終日沮丧和失望。        

However, Peter and his friends met Jesus again in the morning. 然而,彼得和他的朋友们,清晨再次遇见耶稣。

They ate together with Jesus and had the communion on the shore. 他们和耶稣一起吃,並在岸边交通。  

They talked about their task, their ministry of the Word with Jesus. 他们谈论他们的使命,他们與耶稣的话语的事工。 

Peter found again his task of gospel ministry and came back to Jerusalem. 彼得再次找到了他的福音事工的使命工作,回到耶路撒冷。  

After meeting Jesus in the early morning, they came back to the land of mission and          accomplished it with courage and power. 清晨见耶稣后,他们回到帶使命的土地上,并以勇气和力量去完成。  

Clearly, the morning prayer provides us the wisdom, courage, and power to work for the decision made by faith. 显然地,清晨祷告提供給我们的智慧,勇气和力量,憑信心作出决定。

Conclusion 结论
Up until now we have observed the early morning prayer of Jesus. 到现在为止,我们已经看到了耶稣的清晨祷告。

Jesus went out to the quiet place early in the morning and prayed to God. 耶稣出去,到安静的地方,在清晨向神祷告。      

Jesus convinced his task as the preacher of the Word of God and courageously left the sick of Capernaum waiting for his touch of  gracious hand. 耶稣確定了他的使命工作,成为神的话语的传道者,勇於离开了,等待祂亲切的手触摸的,迦百农患病的人。

He then preached the gospel all throughout Galilee. 然后,他传福音走遍整个加利利。

The Lord is the God of working early in the morning. 主是在清晨工作的神。    

Jesus also began his ministerial work by praying in the early morning. 耶稣也通过在清晨祷告,开始了使命事工。                 

In his prayer, he confirmed the historical and worldwide redemptive vision of God and was provided with his courage and power. 在祂的祷告中,祂確证上帝對历史和世界的救赎眼光,并得到了祂的勇气和力量。 

Likewise, we, the follower of his footprints, also need to pray at a quiet place early in the morning. 同样,我们,跟随祂的脚蹤的人,也需要一个安静的地方,清晨祷告。   

Many of the godly men seek the quiet place in the morning to meet the Lord. 许多敬虔的人,寻求安静的地方,清晨迎見主。

A Psalmist said, “I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his Word I hope, my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.” (Ps 130:5-6). 诗人说: 我等候耶和華、我的心等候.我也仰望祂的話。我的心等候主、勝於守夜的等候天亮、勝於守夜的等候天亮。(詩篇130:5-6) 

David also prayed in the morning, 大卫也在清晨祷告,

“Give attention to the sound of cry, my king and my God, for you do I pray.    O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice, in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.” (Ps.5:1-3). 耶和華阿、求祢留心聽我的言語、顧念我的心思。 我的王我的 神阿、求祢垂聽我呼求的聲音.因為我向祢祈禱。耶和華阿、早晨祢必聽我的聲音.早晨我必向祢陳明我的心意、並要儆醒。(詩篇5:1-3)

David cried to the King to hear him in the morning. 大卫在清晨呼求王垂听。

And he also believed that the Lord accepted his prayer in morning and said, 他也相信,主接受他清晨的禱告,他说,         

“But I, O Lord, cry to you in the morning my prayer comes before you.”(Ps. 88: 13). 耶和華阿、我呼求祢.我早晨的禱告要達到祢面前。(詩篇88:13)   

We are the weak and indispensable to be dependent upon God. 我们是軟弱的,必須倚靠神。 At that time we have to cry to the Lord. 在那个时候,我们都要哭求主。       

In particular, as we begin a new day, before we meet any one else in a day, we must go before God and meet him, and after having communion with him we must begin our work.  尤其是,当我们开始新的一天,在我们面見任何其他人之前,我们必须到上帝面前去和祂见面,并与祂交通后,我们才开始我们的工作。

That is the way of our saints. 这是我们圣徒的方式。 

As Jesus did, so do we.* 效法耶稣所行,我们也这样行。*

分享何牧師與師母2016三月參觀韓國十二萬五千人教會 Myung Sung Presbyterian Church

36年如一日, 全年每日晨禱 early morning prayer 領受神的話,

平时每日四场, 这周五場, 总約三萬多人參加。

4:50 am, 6:00 am, 7:20 am, 8:30 am, 10:00 am

我们去参加的是6:00am这一场, 天还未亮, 第一场刚散会,第二场的人脚步匆匆, 大门前,电梯口, 四层停车场,  都已满满, Myung Sung Church 的牧者与辛勤的执事, 诗班, 招待…..所有各角落的服事人员, 弟兄姐妹, 因着信, 他们都从早晨领受主话, 同心合意聚集中,  接到了从天上来的满满的恩典。

晨聚之後, 再去上班,上学, 我问一位学生:” 你晚上几点睡? ”

他说: “一点钟。”  我问:” 你一整天不累吗?” 他回答:” 晨聚, 我得着能力!”

哈利路亚! 阿们 !

我访问牧者,执事: ” Myung Sung Church 每一位都如此尽心尽意接待我们这些来自北美, 印尼, 菲律滨, 非洲, 中国等海外的牧者,传道, 我们能为你们做甚么呢?” 我所得的答案是:” 回到你们牧养的教会, 开始晨聚, 分享主话, 同心祷告, 一一交托, 锲而不捨, 定要堅持, 愿神赐给亚伯拉罕的福, 透过晨聚(不能只在各人家, 要在教会) 赐给了Myung Sung Church, 也赐给有信心而起行晨聚的教会, 教会中遵行晨聚的人, 都必加倍经历主大恩典。”

在纽约, 地区, 环境, 民族性虽不同, 但爱我们的主,    却是一位, 让我们以祷告来寻求主带领我们 !
