A Monday Morning Prayer

Almighty God,

As we begin this Monday, we come before You with hearts filled with gratitude for Your steadfast love and faithfulness. We give thanks for the gift of a new week and the opportunity to serve You and others.

We humbly ask that You guide us in our thoughts and actions, so that we may live in accordance with Your will. Grant us the strength and wisdom to overcome any obstacles that may come our way.

We lift up our work and endeavors, asking for Your blessings, so that through them we may be a blessing to those around us. We also bring before You any specific concerns or needs we have, imploring Your guidance, protection, healing, and provision for ourselves and our loved ones.

We trust in Your goodness and love, and we give You all praise and honor. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
