11 Powerful and Uplifting Early Morning Prayers to Kick-Start your Day with God

One of the persons who showed us how decisively important the early morning prayer is, and who also happens to be its biggest proponent, is non-other than our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Other early risers depicted in the Bible are Abraham, Joshua, Moses, and David.

It was said of Jesus: And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he [Jesus] departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed Mark 1:35.

When you wake up in the morning, and your heart and mind feel really heavy, like the weight of the whole world is on your shoulder, you can always run to God for strength, encouragement, guidance, rest, or peace.

You wouldn’t be the first to do this. Jesus Christ also did it. Here are 11 powerful and uplifting prayers to kick-start your morning!

Here are 11 Morning Prayers

1. Prayer for the Gift of a New Day

Wonderful Father, full of mercy and grace. I give you praise for counting me worthy to witness another day on this earth. Thank you Heavenly Father, for the gift of a new day.

Lord, I laid down, slept in peace and woke up safely, because you were watching over me. You kept me all through the night, even till this morning.

I go into today with a heart of thanksgiving. I love you God for all that you have done for me! Amen.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your mind in Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7

Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord.
Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly
– Psalm 5:3

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. – James 1:5

2. Prayer for Guidance throughout the day

Lord, thank you for a great night’s rest and the opportunity to stand here today. Today is another day that you have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Lord, I know you love me. Your word makes me understand the depth of your love for me, and I thank you for this boundless love.

Lord, I ask for your unfailing guidance, as I step out in search of my daily bread today. Let your mighty hands of protection and strength cover me as I walk through today. Thank you because I am safe in your hands. Amen.

Each day I beg for your help, O Lord; I lift my hands to you for mercy. – Psalm 88:9

3. Prayer for Divine Assistance

Father Lord, I feel like a million tons of weight is hanging over my head right now. I feel exhausted, stressed and overwhelmed, even though I just woke up. My heart is racing.

This burden on my shoulder is way too heavy for me to carry alone. Lord, I need you now more than ever. I can no longer pretend like I can help myself.

As I go out today, show yourself strong for me. My God is all powerful and is able to do immeasurably more than all I ask or imagine.

So, today Lord, help me to safely anchor myself to you. Help me to recognize and accept your divine help when I see it today. I receive the grace to depend on you and not on myself. Amen.

“I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” – Psalm 16:8

And may the Lord our God show us his approval, and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful! – Psalm 90:17

Morning Prayer for my Relatives

4. Prayer for my Relatives

Dear Merciful Father, thank you for those you have surrounded me with. They have been a blessing to me and I want this great blessing to continue for a long time.

Lord, my prayer today is that your hand of divine protection and guidance will fall mightily on my relatives, in Jesus name. As they go out and carry out their different assignments, bring home safely.

I thank you for their lives all these years and I pray that you will be a present help to them every moment of their lives. Amen.

“Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Carefully consider what is right in the eyes of everybody.” – Romans 12:17

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” – Proverbs 31:25

5. Praying for Positive Influences

There is a reason you brought me to this new day, Lord. Shine brightly through me so that everyone that come across me today may feel your presence in me.

Take my hand, Lord and teach me to do that which is right.

As I step out today, let lives and destinies be blessed by my words and actions.

I refuse to be used to denigrate, insult or disrespect people today. I uplift, motivate and bless lives. Amen.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. – Philippians 4:8

My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. – Proverbs 3:1-4

Early Morning Prayer for Wisdom

6. Early Morning Prayer for Wisdom

Dear God, you said in your word that if anyone lacks wisdom, he should ask of you who gives liberally, without reproaching or faultfinding.

So in response to your word, I come this morning that you fill me up with the type of knowledge that can only come from you.

I receive the grace to make wise decisions. I receive the capacity to choose wisdom over folly. And I thank you for your blessings and wisdom, in Jesus name, Amen!

Psalm 119:66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands.

7. Prayer for Strength

Dear Father, I humble myself this morning and I ask for your strength. Lord uphold me with your right hand in this world of grave temptations.

By my strength I cannot do it, I need the strength that only you gives.

The strength to say “No” to sin and temptations. The strength to choose and do that which is right.

And, as I go through this trying period, create in me a pure heart, O God. Renew a steadfast spirit within me.

In Jesus’ mighty and powerful name I pray, Amen.

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7

Morning Prayer for My Family

8. Prayer for My Family

Lord, thank you for my family. Thank you for my spouse. Thank you for my kids.

I entrust all my family members into your mighty hand. As they go out into the world today, be with them. At the end of today, Lord God, bring us all back together.

Lord, I pray that our relationship with you becomes better. I pray you draw us even closer to yourself.

In Jesus blessed name, Amen.

Joshua 24:15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

9. Prayer for My Job and Career

I thank you for my job because you, Lord, gave it to me. Heavenly Father, thank you for my career.

I ask for your leadership and wisdom as I do my job and go along with my career. Lord continue to direct my career.

As I go to work today, watch over me and keep me safe. I pray against accidents, no matter how small.

I pray against any power that may want to cause problems in the place where the income with which I support my family comes from. In Jesus mighty name. Amen.
