The Best Way to Start Your Day: Morning Prayer With the Lord

The Best Way to Start Your Day: Morning Prayer With the Lord

What a wonderful habit to get into! Starting every morning with the Lord! The first hour of your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.

Taking time in that first hour to spend in prayer and worship, and studying the Word of God gets you to a place of peace and inner joy. It sets you up to really appreciate the blessings of the Lord throughout the day.

Even Jesus rose early to spend time with the Father. Mark 1:35 NLT – Before daybreak the next morning, Jesus got up and went out to an isolated place to pray.

Dave Jackson of the School of Podcasting has Jeremiah 29:11 on his website. It’s a daily reminder to him that the Lord has great plans for him despite whatever may be his present situation.


Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have in mind for you, DECLARES THE LORD; they are plans for peace, not disaster, to give you A FUTURE FILLED WITH HOPE.

The Lord does have great plans for your life. But you need to take the time to listen to him and allow yourself to be led by the Holy Spirit.

Producing Success

Brandon Gaille of the Blog Millionaire in his article 21 Personal Development Strategies that Produce Success writes about how he devotes time every morning and evening to prayer.

“I start everyday and end everyday with a prayer. I take five minutes during my prayers to visualize what I am grateful for. As I pray for my wife, my son Grayson, and my son Branson, I visualize the moments of the past day that I am grateful for. This includes the hugs, the laughs, high fives, and the “I love yous.” By the time I am done with my prayer, I am smiling ear to ear and am filled with pure happiness.”

Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

Psalm 92:2 It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening.

Morning Prayer

Oh Heavenly Father, as I start this day, I dedicate it all to you. Take me and guide me, Lord. Lord, I am forever grateful for your abundant blessings on my life.

Thank you for the prayers answered and directions given throughout my trials. Lord, I know that even though weeping may last through the night, your joy comes with the morning.

I look forward this morning to an overflow of abundant joy and blessings.

Thank you for your powerful Word. Protect me and my family throughout this day. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!

  5. My day does not began until I get in the presence of the Father. I need the Holy Spirit to guide and direct my life, we need Help from the Father every second, minute and hour, prayer is the way we communicate with Him.

    Thank you for being so committed to helping God’s people in times when we need it the most.

      1. I am thankful to the Lord for all that he does for me. I pray for healing in America and for the world. We have to remember that the Lord will never leave or forsake us. But we must humble our selves under his hand, repent if our sons and turn
        from our wicked ways. Then the Lord will heal our land.

  8. If I don’t start my day with the Lord first, it’s as of something is missing. I love to end my day with the Lord also. It gives me peace.

  9. As I start my day with worship & prayer,praising God his word’s reminds me that the suffering at this time is not to compare with his glory .1Peter 5-10

    1. All Glory be to Jesus Christ ? I feel the same too, Prayer, Worship & Praise are the best either to start your day or at end of the day. Thank you

  10. I take time every morning to spend time with the Lord. Those days where I have to rush out the door to get to work are the ones that aren’t so good because I was unable to get into my Word. I do after I get out of work if I miss the morning. It really does set my tone daily.

  14. Oh yes! Upon waking my thoughts are on my prayers (My alarm goes off at 6am Mon to Fri. Sat and Sun, wake up times and alarm times differ. I also listen to my bible in one year plan in my phone bible app for the day). I also read the scripture for the day in my phone bible app. Then I follow it up with praying with my kids before we all leave the house. Doing this preps me and keeps me throughout the day. Gracious God He is! I love Him.

  15. Thank you for the powerful prayers. They bless me and others and help us to make it through our day and all that we encounter. Thank you and God bless you.

    Thank you Lord for this blessed day and wonderful day I receive the Prayer glory be to God almighty I give God the glory Ameen. Lord continue to bless my life and continue to strengthen me in prayers so be it Ameen.

  19. I have learned a practice of meditaion. Where I try to sit quietly before God. Inviting the Holy Spirit to be my counsellor, comforter, companion… as the Bible describes him. I have tried to move away from just asking God for things. Focusing more on seitting with him. Waiting on him. Hearing from him. It is a practice that may be difficult to start, however gets much more natural with practice. Quieting the mind to hear from God using multiple senses. Why not? We use our senses for everything else in our lives. Many of these things not even good for us. And we overload our senses with an overwhelming number of messages each day… especially with our phones. Why not shut it all off even for 10 minutes and learn to hear from God?

  20. About my morning, naahhh it’s been a while I’ve been spending time with Him nonetheless throughout the day even. I believe He still speaks in so many ways ….. I just need to slow down and worship the God of Heaven and Earth. Please do mention me in your Prayers X Thanks Lai

  22. I need to incorporate prayer in my mornings. I am now about to fast so I m now going to implement morning prayer in my life and prayer before I sleep 🙂 I am already feeling closer to God this morning! Thank you!

    Thank you Lord,for You bless me with Your abundant blessings and answered my prayers,and dear Lord, You are love,let me be more like You,and less like the world.
    I always love You my dear God.
    Glory Be To the Most High God.
    For His mercies endures forever and ever.
    In Jesus mighty name .
    Amen and Amen.

  25. I’ve never been a morning person, and it has always taken me awhile to become fully awake, while at the same time hurrying to get to work. In 2015 I was laid off from my job of 20 years, and have only found temporary assignments since. But this actually helped me to spend time alone with God FIRST, before anything else. I discovered that this is crucial to getting prepared for whatever the day will bring! And spending time in prayer and in the Word with God while drinking coffee–it is not a chore, but a privilege and a pleasure! Therefore I strongly recommend this to my fellow sleepy-head believers. Start with thanking God and praising Him for Who He is, read devotionals with prayers such as, making sure to read the Scriptures, and then making your prayer requests. You will be blessed!

    1. I don’t thunk God minds at all us having a coffee during our morning times with him. I often consider my morning times, “coffee with God”.

  26. Thank you Lord for another Day, protect me and give me peace
    I love you
    Thy w will be done
    Amen & Amen

    I am certainly thankful for seeing another day. Lately I have not had the best luck at work and i started applying for other jobs and there is one in particular I am praying to get because it would work perfectly for me and my son. The only drawback is I have something on my record that I had expunged but it is still there and I am praying that the Lord blinds their eyes to that. Please help me pray for this federal job…

  36. Just the fact that GOD has allowed me to get this morning and be able to type this comment is a blessing in and of itself. My daily routine begins with prayer, bible reading, and devotional time. After doing these things and committing my day to the LORD, my day becomes better and I feel a great sense of joy knowing that everything will be alright because the LORD is fighting my battles on my behalf.

    1. To get out of bed, that is!! Left out a word! Sorry!!

  37. My God is wonderful, full of compassion and mercy. I am forever grateful and thankful, simply because he lavish all of his desires upon me.
    Love always,
    Your child.

  38. Hi good morning, I find it so hard to pray sometimes. Because u know sometimes the spirit wakes u up to pray. But sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t but between sleep and wake I could hear myself praying. But i think god knows your and despite what happens he still hears. When I am fully up I spend the entire day just praising god, by putting on my radio on 98.1 and reading 11 pages of the Bible each day. But when I am finished reading the Bible I have to read it over and over and over over again. Because the word which is the seed has to be planted in us as Christians.

    1. It is great that you incorporate some form of praise or worship, but prayer is not based on feeling. It is something that we should get in the habit of doing everyday until it becomes a habit. Let’s look at it as a “prayer bank”.
      We deposit our prayers everyday to make sure we have enough to cover us in our daily lives (prayers for protection, trials, tribulation etc).
      Also remember that When the praise goes up , the blessings come down.

  39. Thank you Lord Jesus Thank you Father fr finding this site to encourage me more with my beliefs 🙂 dear Lord kindly continue to guide me in every step of the way so I can follow you according to your riches in Glory. Bless this site to encourage more other people. May you alwyz be with all of us in Jesus migthy name I pray.amen

  40. I so much appreciates the effort you’ve made, to make others come close to God. May God continue to uplift you with His Mighty Right Hand, IJN.

  41. Thank you so much, I do and enjoy it so much. I also love the worship songs with the daily prayers. Our worship unto the Lord is such an important part of our quite time to experience His presence.

  42. Yvonne Marie Miller

    Jeremiah 29:11 is a very popular Scripture loved by so many and was one of the first Scripture I ever learned. Each morning now I put on The Whole Armour of God which I find comforts and protects me.

    1. I once heard a sermon on the last chapter of Ephesians in which the preacher said “many people tell me they put on the armour each morning to which I reply why take it off?” I’ve never forgotten that!

    1. I know the plans I have for you saith the Lord to comfort you, keep you at peace.
      Thank you Jesus
      Thy will be done
      Amen & Amen
