Monday Morning Prayer

Heavenly Father,

As I begin this Monday, I come to You in humility and gratitude. I thank You for Your love and faithfulness, and for the gift of a new day.

I confess my sins to You and ask for Your forgiveness. I know that I am a sinner and I cannot save myself. I put my faith in You and Your Son Jesus who died on the cross for my sins. I ask You to cleanse me with Your precious blood and make me new.

I ask that You guide me and protect me as I go about my day. Give me wisdom and discernment as I make decisions, and help me to always honor You in all that I do.

I pray for Your blessings in my work and career. Give me the strength and ability to excel in all that I do, and use my talents and skills for Your glory. Help me to be a light for You in the workplace, and to be a positive influence on those around me.

I also pray for my family and loved ones. Protect them and keep them safe, and give them Your peace and joy. Help me to be a loving and supportive spouse, parent, and friend.

I also pray for Your protection in my health and well-being. Give me the strength to take care of my body and mind, and help me to have a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Lastly, I ask for Your guidance and direction in my spiritual life. Help me to grow in my relationship with You, and to deepen my understanding of Your Word. Give me a hunger for Your truth, and help me to share it with others.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
