Prayer For Better Days
Dear God, at the start of each day, help us to recognize you above all else. Enlighten the eyes of our heart that we might see you, and notice how you're at work through our lives. Give us wisdom to make the best choices, fill us with a desire to seek after you more than anything else in this world. Let your Spirit and power breathe in us, through us, again, fresh and new. Thank you that you are greater than anything we may face in our day. Thank you that your presence goes with us, and that your joy is never dependent on our circumstances, but it is our true and lasting strength, no matter what we're up against. We ask that your peace lead us, that it would guard our hearts and minds in you. We ask for your grace to cover our lives this day. We love you Lord...we need you. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Father, thank you for the blessing of a family. Today, please keep the enemy at bay. Increase their faith. Protect them from falling into temptation. Grant them the opportunity to shine a light in the darkness and lead others to you. Whatever is making my family anxious today, I ask that you comfort them, and that they can rest in your complete sovereignty. Amen.
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.
Heavenly Father, I have been so wishy-washy when it comes to taking hold of Your promises and making them mine. But today, I'm putting my foot down! I will not allow my human reason to talk me out of my spiritual inheritance. I will set my foot down on every promise that You have given me today. I'm going in! In Jesus' Name, 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.
I love your prayer! I can relate to every word in it. I too have no energy, and waste entire mornings-sometimes even going back to sleep. I don't feel like I'm living on days when I get nothing done. It's like I'm wasting the precious gift to live each day. I know I can't give up, but I feel so stuck. And each day that passes w/o me getting much done or appreciating it feels like I'm throwing away a gift. I know God wants more for me and just hope this dark cloud lifts soon! I hope the same for you as well! God bless!
I am suffering from depression. Some days are better than others. Recently its just been so hard to start my day. I just don't have any energy to enjoy my day. I am to the point where I just wanna give up. I ask you lord that you help me overcome my depression. And help me realize life is worth living! I wanna enjoy life again, and not be sad all the time.
Dear god I pray that you please help me to think more positive thoughts. I feel lost all the time and that brings me down.The anxiety I get overwhelms me. i feel so stupid when I get all anxious and cant control it.I want to have the energy , confidence, the peace in my heart. I want to feel good about myself and know that finally something is right in my life. Thank you God I love you . Amen please take care of my family as well. I love them all very much.
