Prayer in the Morning

Almighty God,

I come before You this morning with a heart full of gratitude. I give thanks for the blessings of a new day and for the abundance of Your grace in my life.

I humbly ask for Your guidance and protection as I navigate through this day. Grant me the wisdom and strength to make wise choices and to serve You in all that I do.

I pray for Your guidance and direction in all of my relationships, in my work, and in my personal life. I ask that You bless my family and friends, and all those who are in need. I put my trust in Your love and Your plan for my life.

In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
