A Morning of Being Grateful

Dear Father God,

I thank you for waking me up today, another day of life. You have given me another sunrise to enjoy.

Thank you, Lord God, for the wonderful sounds of nature and the cool breeze brushing through the trees making the birds sing beautiful melodies. You are a great Father, Lord, always full of grace and mercy. I praise you, Father, for allowing me to live another beautiful day in Your Kingdom.

Thank you for the gift of family and friends. Holding them in my heart is one of the most precious things I can never get tired of. Bless everyone, Father, for they deserve all the goodness you have given to me. If I may do something wrong today, please forgive me. I also thank you for always being the reason in my head when it comes to decision-making.

I pray to You, Your Son, Jesus Christ and all the angels in heaven. Amen.

Daylight Strength

Dear Lord,

This daylight, upon waking and getting ready for my day, I pray that you give me strength today, to be strong for You in this world full of temptations.

Lord, You know that there are struggles I will go through today. I pray that you be with me as I go through them. Carry me when I am too weak. If I stumble into temptation, forgive me Father. Lead me away from them, Father. I need Your strength to overcome these evils.

When I triumph against them, I praise you, Father. For without You, I will not be where I am and I will not have the strength I have. Bless my loved ones with the strength You have given me, Lord. You are worthy of all praises and the entire honor in the world. You are my strength and my protection.

Keep me and my family safe at all times, Lord, especially those who are in transit during this morning.

In Your Son Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.

Sunshine Prayer for the Ones Who Hold My Heart

Dear Lord,

I saw the sun shining so brightly this morning. It made me remember of my family and how blessed I am that you have given them to me.

Thank you for my father, for enduring every hard day to be able to provide for us and never complains. Even on his weak days, he remains strong and hard working. Today he went to work early this morning to provide us with a good life here on earth.

Thank you for my mother who loves us unconditionally just like Mary loved Jesus. She provided us with breakfast food on the table which were very delicious.

Thank you for the gift of siblings, Lord. Life would be so dull without them. They are my first best friends and my first companions during breakfast talks.

You have truly great plans for everyone and that includes having the best siblings in the world. I may not say it as often, but I love them dearly. Bless our family today as we go our separate ways. Keep them safe from harm and lead us not into temptation. There is nothing more that I shall want but their happiness. Brings us all back home safely to each other, In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Breakfast Prayer for a Long Day Ahead

Dear God,

I thank you this morning for giving me a job I love. You have provided me with a steady income and so much more. I pray that you watch over me today at work and no accidents will happen so that everyone can go back to their families safe and sound.

I thank you that my job has provided an income to support my family's needs. You have given me everything I need and even more. Words are not enough on how grateful I am for the gifts you have showered upon me and my family. You have given me a roof above my head and even a car to take me to work.

I pray for safe travels today and tomorrow from work to home. I pray that you will use me as you see fit for Your Glory today and always. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

A Prayer for Opportunities

Dear Lord,

I pray this morning that I will surrender my spirit completely to You. Use me as You please in anything that you want.

I pray that you give me opportunities to show people how much You mean to me, Your simple servant. Give me discretion to know what to say and how to say it, to honor You, Lord. Make me bold enough that I may proclaim salvation with cheerfulness and joy. Guide me, Lord, to be away from anxiety as I learn how I should defend myself. I pray that the seeds You have given me and planted will grow and mature to the strong trees they ought to be.

I am forever grateful for the cross Your Son Jesus died on for us. I pray that I can proclaim it in a contagious way today. Teach me, Lord, this morning to be brave to grab opportunities as they come my way. Amen.

Prayer for a Contented Morning

My dear Father,

I pray that I will stay focused on You today even after this morning. You are more than enough to sustain me. I pray that You will constantly remind me to be satisfied with everything I have and every circumstance I am in. I pray that You fill me up with joy even if I am tired.

Teach me to be brought low and how to flourish. Teach me to learn the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. You are the only One who can satisfy my thirst and hunger when you open Your Hands. You give power to the faint. My soul clings to you as your right hand upholds me. I know that through my contentment, dear Lord, You will be glorified.

I want to honor You in all that I do. I believe I can do everything when You are with me, Lord. I praise your Holy Name. Amen.

Just for this Day

Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank You this day. I thank You for my being able to be awake again, to see and hear the morning. I am blessed because You are a forgiving Father and an understanding one at that.

You have done marvellous things for me and my loved ones yet You still continue to bless me with so much more. Please forgive me every day for some things I may have done, said or thought. That may not have pleased You and I ask You now for your forgiveness.

Please keep me and my loved ones from all danger and harm. Help me start this day with a new, pleasant attitude with plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind so I can hear Your loving voice. Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things without judgement. Let me not whine or complain over things I have no control over. And when the world closes in on me, let me remember the example of Jesus, to slip away and find a quiet place to pray. Continue to use me to do Your Will.

Amen.

Dear Lord,

You have raised us from our bed and our sleep. Enlighten our hearts and minds, open our lips that we may praise You, Holy Father.

Jesus Christ, let the light of Your countenance come to us, your disciples that we may behold the unapproachable light. Guide us as we walk towards working by the commandments. Lord God, who loves mankind the most, I pray that You help me at all times and in all things. Deliver me from all things evil and lead me to Your eternal Kingdom.

For you are my Creator, Provider and Giver of everything good. I praise you, Father, who works in greatness and mysterious deeds for all of us. I thank you for not destroying us because of our sins.

In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
