I have always considered myself a morning person. The older I get the more rediculous it has become.
I go to bed around 10:00 each evening, but find myself waking up at 3:00 am and not being able to get back to sleep. I usually get out of bed and watch informercials of things I don't need or even want.
Lately when waking up at this hour, people who I care about (and some I have struggles with) come through my head. I was always wondering why, but I've come to realize that God has put these people in my head (and my heart) to pray specifically for them. They may be going through a difficult time in their lives and remembering them in prayer will hopefully give them extra blessings and peace they may need.
Once I am done praying, I seem to drift off to a light sleep and get up at 4:45 am, which is my usual wake-up time during the week. This may be early for most people, but for me it gives me time to wake-up and be ready for work!
