Here are three morning prayers that can help start your day out right.
Great Father in heaven, thank You for another day and for all the many blessings in my life. Please help me to focus on You and in glorifying You because You are most worthy. I pray that You use me today, dear Father, to glorify You and Jesus Christ in what I do for others, in how I speak with them in love, and to be light and salt to a dead and decaying world. And this I pray all for the glory of the name that is above all names, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Witnessing for Christ
Great Father Most High, please put this great desire of Yours in my heart that none should perish (2 Peter 3:9). And make it my desire, too, so that I would have the courage and fearlessness needed to tell others about Your Great Son, Jesus Christ, and that He is the one and only way to You (John 14:6); that there is salvation found in no other (Acts 4:12); and that Jesus is not one of many ways to You but the only way (John 6:44). That is my prayer for today in Jesus Christ’s most glorious name. Amen.
Father God, Oh Holy One, please help me to avoid sin and resist temptation today as Jesus taught the disciples and to “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:13). I know I cannot resist the enemy without Your help. I am no match for these wicked spirits in high places because I’m not wrestling with flesh and blood but powerful, wicked spirit beings that are trying to cause me to stumble (Ephesians 6:12). Remind me to armor up today and every day so that I can have more of the mind of Christ (Ephesians 6:13-17). And in the great name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
The very first thing I do is thank God for another day and for allowing me to have life, but then I pray for God to use me at my own expense to glorify Him. God desires for us to glorify Him in our actions and in our words. And since we know it’s God’s will to glorify Him, we are doing God’s will when we strive to glorify Him, when we witness for Him, and when we strive to live lives that are pleasing to Him.
