  1. Welcome – Bob and JT – chit chat about life, walk with God, training, etc.


BB&JT: Plea and thank you for ratings and review & for spreading the word via social media and word of mouth…

BB –  We are talking today about … “Morning Prayer”…

So JT What does that title bring up to your mind?

  1. Bob – POINT: Anytime is the right time to pray but there is something very special about arising early in the morning for the purpose of uninterrupted time with God. It’s a matter of denying yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ.


Luke 9:23 (ESV) — 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.


  1. JT ------ OK THEN LET’S TALK SOME MORE ABOUT THAT as we bring up… WHAT’S NEW –  as we open Bob’s recent blog from bobbrubaker.com …

  1. JT This is the PowerBreak Podcast, I’m JT along with Bob Brubaker and this is the  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…




Do you really think that there is an advantage to praying early in the day, rather than later in the day? If so – How so?  Also what about people who work shift work?


  1. Bob & JT discuss


Shift work ---- early whenever that is for you… (examples)


Daniel – 3 X per day


YES ---- There are advantages --- no interruptions or less, you are fresh, influences greater part of the day AND THE BIG ONE --- exercises self-discipline



  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT”


How do you mentally approach getting up earlier than normal to accomplish this?


  1. Bob & JT discuss


Luke 9:23 (ESV) — 23 And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

1 Corinthians 9:27 (ESV) — 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.




  1. (JT) Third Question …. From the physical side of life…

Let’s talk about walking with weights? You see this all the time, people out walking carrying dumbells or some have a backpack filled with weight. What do you think?

  1. Bob and JT discuss…
  • Appeal is Resistance training with cardio – alright ??? on short spurts but not for longer periods
  • Watch out for poor posture and overloading your joints
  • Best to do your cardio and your resistance training separately to avoid injury.


Bob’s final comment – It takes discipline ….


Point: DISCIPLINE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE --- in all aspects of life
