Good Morning Prayer

Heavenly Father,

As I awaken to this new day, I come before You with a heart filled with gratitude. I thank You for the gift of life and for the privilege to serve You. I praise You for Your enduring love and mercy. I humbly ask for Your guidance and protection as I embark on the tasks of this new day.

I pray that Your Holy Spirit would guide me in all my decisions and actions. Grant me wisdom to discern Your will for my life and the courage to follow it. Assist me in trusting in You and leaning on You in all things, knowing that You are always with me and will never leave me nor forsake me.

I pray for the loved ones in my life, for my family, friends, and loved ones. I pray for their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I ask that You would use me to be a blessing to them and to demonstrate Your love through my words and actions.

I also pray for those who have not yet come to know You, that they may come to understand Your love and grace and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

I pray that this day would be filled with Your presence and that I may bring glory to Your name in all that I do.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
