A Prayer in the Morning

Heavenly Father,

As I rise this morning, I give thanks to You for the gift of another day. I am grateful for the blessings You have bestowed upon me and for the love You have shown me through Your Son, Jesus Christ.

I ask for Your guidance and protection as I go about my day. I pray that You would help me to be a reflection of Your love and grace to those around me and that my actions and words would bring glory to Your name.

I ask for Your wisdom in making decisions, and for the strength to do what is right and to honor You in all that I do. I trust in Your plan for my life and I surrender my will to Yours.

I pray that You would use me to make a positive impact in the world and to spread the good news of Your kingdom. I pray for those who are in need, for the sick and the suffering, and for those who are lost and have not yet found their way to You.

I pray for my family and loved ones, that You would watch over them and bless them with Your love and grace. I pray that they would find You and be guided by Your wisdom.

I pray for all those whom I will come in contact with today, that they may find You and be blessed by Your love and grace.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
