A Prayer Before Dawn

Heavenly Father,

As the dawn breaks and a new day begins, I come before You in humility and gratitude. I thank You for Your faithfulness and love, which never fails. I confess my sins and ask for Your forgiveness. I ask that You would guide and protect me as I go about my day. I trust in Your goodness and provision. Grant me the strength and wisdom to do Your will and bring glory to Your name in all that I say and do.

I pray for my family, loved ones, and friends, asking for Your blessings and protection over them. For my work and business, I ask for success and prosperity.

I lift up in prayer those who are suffering and in need. Bring them comfort and healing, Lord. I also pray for our leaders and those in authority, asking for Your wisdom and guidance for them.

Lastly, I pray for the Church, that it may be a light to the world and a reflection of Your love and grace.

I pray all these things in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen
