Excerpt from Day by Day, or Meditations for the Morning Watch
OF course it is possible to pray to God at any time and in any place. That man is to be pitied who has not learned in the face of some sore temptation, or in some trial when like Peter he felt himself to be sinking, to cry out, Lord, save, or I perish. But the prayer of the morning watch is of a differ ent kind. It may not be spoken prayer at all. It is rather difficult to suggest a form for such petitions. The following limits may, however, be profitably observed.
First, Remember you are going to meet your Master; therefore be very reverent, and, as you would not rush hurriedly into the presence of an earthly king, wait quietly before him until you are very sure that you have a vision of his face.
