Morning Prayers 

1. A Morning Prayer for God's Presence

My Heavenly Father, I pray that nothing separates me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me to walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions and keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be. Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity rather than a personal inconvenience. Help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, 'Great is your love toward me.' You already see the ways I will fall short and mess up. But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. Lord, help me to remember forever what a gift it is to commune with You like this in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

2.Prayer to Start the Day

Dear God, at the start of each day, help me to recognize You above all else. Enlighten the eyes of my heart that I might see You, and notice how You are at work through my life. Give me wisdom to make the best choices, fill me with a desire to seek after You more than anything else in this world. Let Your Spirit and power breathe in me, through me, again, fresh and new. Thank You that You are greater than anything I may face in my day. Thank You that Your presence goes with me, and that Your joy is never dependent on my circumstances, but it is my true and lasting strength, no matter what I’m  up against. I ask that Your peace will lead me,  guard my heart and keep mind in You. I ask for Your grace to cover my life daily. I love You Lord and I need You always. In Jesus' Name, Amen. 

Lord, I am weary and don’t know when this “race” will end in my life. I feel like I’ve been running forever, trying to outrun this trial. Help me to stop trying to outrun my pain but rather run with endurance the race You have set before me. I know that because of You I am ultimately a victor over the trials in my life. I know that nothing in this world can separate me from Your steadfast love. Please give me a measure of You love today; give me the strength to endure this trial. Thank You for You love for me that never ends! And thank You for the crown of joy that awaits me forever in You Kingdom, in Jesus’ name.

4.Good Morning Lord

14. Prayer for a Heavy Heart

Father, my heart is heavy today. I feel like I have to carry the burden alone. Words like overwhelmed, distraught, exhausted seem to describe where I am.

Bring us into a greater discernment of how You operate, so that we may come into a deeper understanding that all we see with natural eyes is not all that is. Today we ask for eyes to see Your hand in all matters, and hearts open to Your work. Amen.
