New Every Morning

New Every Morning

Recently, I've been thinking that it would be nice to do a guided meditation first thing in the morning, before I even get out of bed. With that in mind, I wrote my latest meditation, New Every Morning.

It's not necessary to do this meditation while you are still in bed, but it is written with the assumption that it will be done some time early in the morning before you begin your day. The background music in this meditation is "Sacred Ground" by Jon Schmidt (used with the artist's permission) The song appears on his album "To the Summit," available from Let me know what you think in the comments.

Scriptures: Lamentations 3:22-23, Psalm 143:8, Psalm 5:3

    Honestly – I LOVE the Meditations. I’ve always loved meditations but I’ve never liked how a lot of them seem new-age-ish & don’t have as much of an emphasis on the peace & calm that we can find in Jesus Christ.

    You’ve done an amazing job. Thank you for the work you’ve done.

    – Lauren.

    I love your meditations. My friends love them too. You truly have a gift. We as Christians need more of what you are saying. Please keep up the good work. We will spread the word.

    God bless

    Thank you so much for the meditations, they are such a blessing. I have searched all over the Internet for quality like this and have found nothing that compares! Please do more!! Or do you have any reccomendations for where I can find more guided Christian meditations?

    I’ve been looking for a bible based guided meditation in a long time. Your site is an answer to that prayer. Just wish the audio system was better since there is a lot of echo. Thanks.

    Susan – I’m glad you enjoy these! I noticed that the meditation you commented on (#4) was one I recorded over a year and a half a go. I think the sound quality has greatly improved. Have you listened to some of the more recent ones? What do you think?

    Thank you so much for these meditations that focus of God’s promises to us. It’s been such a blessing to quiet me and focus me on hearing from the Master.

    What better way to commune with the Holy Spirit, the meditations have been such a wonderful blessing in my life I want to share it with everyone I know…

    Thank you for these meditations. I’ve always wanted something like this with an emphasis on Jesus. They have been truly a blessing to me and I have even introduced my 5 year old son to them. Pls keep up the good work and may God grant you His grace.

    This is my favorite so far…it touches upon all the desires of my heart for quiet yet profound communion with God “my King”, my yearnings for guidance and the encouragement of expectation…my need tactually feel and experience (not just intellectually know about) His unconditional mercy and compassion. This experiencing with His Spirit awakens my trust!

    I am so glad I found your website. I have been through a period of ill health, which I still have, and the loss of my oldest son. I have been a Christian for over 30 years and have known the power of God in my life. But in recent years I have found it increasingly difficult to maintain my prayer life, both because of the way my ill health affects my ability to concentrate and also because of a sense of distance and grief since losing my son.

    I have been using this morning meditation for a couple of days now and have found it such a help. It helps me to concentrate on God and experience his healing presence. After the meditation I feel refreshed and find myself going on to into intercession. but this intercession is so different from the usual intercession. It comes from a sense of peace rather than a sense of striving.

    Thank you.

    I’m always a little leary of “mind-ful” things, but I wanted to spend time quietly meditating on His Word. I lacked the discipline or skill to sit quietly long enough to really think through what the Spirit wants me to know. I tried your meditation; Fruit of the Spirit, Patience. My wife is doing it now. I can hardly wait to start my day.

    Thank you and God bless you

    Thank you more than I can say, the devil is massively attacking my relationship with my God and I won’t allow it. However it is a lonely, difficult battle on my own and thanks to you, I am not anymore.

    Please keep these meditations going, they are needed so desperately.

    God bless you Ricky, praying protection

    This is my favorite one so far. I started at one and am moving up. I think that you do an excellent job – I like the music, I think your voice is soothing, and I like that it’s a Christian meditation. I have been recommending your site to my friends. I hope that you will add more meditations. They have been a blessing to me.

    This is the 3rd meditation of yours I’ve done, and they really help me get my day started right. Thank you for these, and for having so much scripture in them, and the relaxing music. Just what I need to help me slow down and focus on the Creator.

    New Every Morning is my absolute favorite meditation. The music, the message, your calming voice help me get centered, surrendered, and filled with God’s peace and love as I prepare to begin my challenging days. Thank you for providing these!

    Thank you Ricky for these meditations that bless so many. They will be a huge blessing for me (yet again) as I go through this season of Lent and this season in my life.

    Hope all is well. God bless

    I’ve been searching the Internet for some Christian guided meditation for a while. This is the first time I’ve found something even close to what I was looking for. It is beautifully done and gently helped me to be in the Prescence of the Lord. I’ve had some trouble learning to be still and quiet….something new in my spiritual journey. Thank you for this helpful tool. The Lord has obviously given you a gift.

    Thank you so much. I am so grateful that I found this site, because my spirit just did not agree with the worldly form of meditation. May you be blessed in this great work that you are doing.

    God bless you abundantly.

    Thanks for your encouraging words. I felt the same way about the meditation and relaxation programs out there. I joined Ricky as a part of Mindful Worship for that very reason.

    Thank you so much Ricky! I have listened to a few now and are a really important part of my day and spiritual Growth. I agree with Lauren I love meditations and think it is an important skill to develop in such a distracted/ noisy culture to be able to switch off to this and tune in to God’s. Hurray my day at work has got better and hopeful thanks to this meditation. God bless you and thank you

    I just lost my Husband 4 weeks ago to a sudden massive stroke. I look forward to listening to New Every Morning, it helps me get through the day, and Psalms 143:8 is my favorite Bible verse.
