One of the best times to pray is during the early hours of the day. Morning prayer is a wonderful time to connect with the Lord, and prayer can set your day on the right course, right from the beginning. Here are some wonderful morning prayers……
“I come before you, O Lord. As the sun rises, may your hope rise up in me. As the birds sing, let your love flow out of me. As the light floods into this new day, may your joy shine through me. I come before you, O Lord and drink in this moment of peace, that I may carry something of your hope, love, and joy today in my heart. Amen.”

“Father God, my heart is filled with chaos and confusion. I feel as if I am drowning in my circumstances and my heart is filled with fear and confusion. I really need the strength and peace that only You can give. Right now, I choose to rest in You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.”
– Mary Southerland
“Father, today I ask forgiveness of all the negative and harmful words I have spoken about myself. I do not want to abuse myself in such a way again. Transform my thoughts and let me understand how marvelously you made me. Change my habits so I use my tongue to speak hope and favor upon my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
– Sarah Coleman
“God, sometimes life gets me down and I find it hard to see things to be thankful for. Open my eyes to see the gifts you’ve given me in my life. I’m going to start by thanking you for loving me enough to come to earth and die so we can live together forever. Amen.”
– Wendy van Eyck
“Father, I have to thank you for looking beyond my faults and for loving me unconditionally. Forgive me when I fail to love others in the same way. Give me eyes to see the needs of the difficult people in my life, and show me how to meet those needs in a way that pleases You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
– Mary Southerland
There is always something to be thankful for. Aside from all of the other blessings in your life, even the simple fact that you have woken up to witness another day is something to give thanks to God for.
Celebrate life by offering a special prayer as YOU start YOUR day. YOU will be surprised to find how relaxing it is when God is with YOU throughout the day, and throughout YOUR life.
