Morning prayer is a wonderful way to focus your time and attention on seeking God’s plan for the day ahead. When you wake up, your mind and heart can feel really heavy, especially when you’re focusing on all the things you have to tackle during the day ahead, and all the stress that comes with those tasks.
Morning prayers can refresh and recharge your soul as you get ready to take on the day with help from the best place possible: Our Creator. Start your mornings with these simple prayers to brighten your day. Meditate, be thankful and show your love to God as you wake up and go through life.

Dear Father God, I thank you for waking me up today, another day of life. You are a great Father, always full of grace and mercy.

“I have set the LORD always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” – Psalm 16:8
Praying for strength to face another day
Fill me with grace, Lord, that I may have the strength to face what is before me today. I know not what today will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be.
If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. Even if I am to lie low, give me the strength to do so patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.
“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
Praying for forgiveness
Forgive the many errors that I made yesterday. Let me try again dear God to walk closer in Your way. I pray for grace to resist temptations.
Give me the wisdom to know how to deal with the many people and situations that will cross my path.
I pray for protection throughout this day. Protect me from harm and evil. Send your angels before me, to the left and right of me and behind me.
Once again, Lord, I say thank you for the special gift of a new day for I know some people aren’t opportune to see it.
Take absolute control of this day and let everything that happens today be according to your will, in Jesus wonderful name I pray, Amen.
