Inspiring Morning Prayer

Almighty God,

I come to You this morning with a grateful heart. I praise and thank You for the gift of another day and for the blessings You have bestowed upon me. I trust in Your love and Your faithfulness to guide me through the challenges that lay ahead.

As I begin this day, I ask for Your guidance and wisdom. May Your Spirit lead and direct me in all that I do, so that I may bring honor and glory to Your Name.

I pray for Your protection over me and my loved ones. Cover me with Your wings and keep me safe from all harm.

I also lift up to You the needs and concerns of others. I pray for those who are suffering, for those who are struggling, and for those who are lost. I ask that You bring comfort and healing to them, and that they may know Your love and grace.

In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
