Prayer For A Good Day
I give you this day, may your spirit be at work in me. Clear the mix of dreams and thoughts from my mind and help me to embrace everything that you have for me today. I give you the mental and physical tiredness I can feel and ask for your life to flow though me. May your hope stir in those who are close to me and bring joy into their hearts. May your love cause me to find new energy, ideas and solutions throughout the day. And may your truth allow me to stay on track and walk confidently in all that I do.
Father, I give you this day.
Light gently arises
The morning beckons
This is your day,
A day that you have made.
I listen to the birds singing
And I leave behind my slumber
I awake with you Lord.
We arise together.
May this working day
Be full of wonder,
Wonder at the morning
That carries me, through each moment
Filled with thanks and praise.
May you find a gift this morning
Laid out for you in the sky.
A beautiful reminder
That sets your hope in flight.
May you notice birds above you
That soar and ride the winds.
And know that as you lift your prayer
God lifts your heart and sings.
May you hear the sweet birds chirping
May you smell the fresh cool air
And know that God's love is all around
Holding you so dear.
May this day be like a present
That fills your heart with awe
And takes your world from grey to gold
And soothes your very soul.
Please guide me throughout this day as it is my last, with joy, happiness and glory. As also love me as I have loved you to this day and forward. We may be troubled but forgive us as we forgive others. But together what you see is what I see in this world forever.
Thank you lord and please be with me.
Dear Lord, as we rise to meet each new day, please let us be filled with Your spirit. Wherever we go, let us spread love, joy, peace, goodness, and faithfulness. Let us desire to become more like you and to worship you in all we do. Help us desire these things so much more than the sin that entices us. Thank you for always going before us. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Good morning, Lord! Today's a new day, a chance for a new start. Yesterday is gone and with it any regrets, mistakes, or failures I may have experienced. It's a good day to be glad and give thanks, and I do, Lord. Thank you for today, a new opportunity to love, give, and be all that you want me to be. Amen.
Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions. And keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be. Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity... rather than a personal inconvenience. And finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, 'Great is your love toward me.' You already see the ways I will fall short and mess up. But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize Your love for me is not based on my performance. You love me warts and all. That's amazing. But what's most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. Amen.
Thank you for getting me up this morning to greet another day and live for You. You make my life truly good. I know that there are a thousand different things that can go wrong today, but I choose to focus on Your goodness. I pray that You will help me have a good day today, despite my changing circumstances. Give me the wisdom and discernment to know how I can help someone or reach out to someone who is hurting. Help me be a good part of someone else's day, and encourage me to think of others before myself. And at the end of this day, remind me to thank You for every blessing You have given me. May I always take delight in every small or large blessing from You God.
In your name, I pray Jesus.
