I love to start my day with a prayer. Right when I wake up, I like my first thought to be of God. I think there’s something about a prayer to start your day – starting your day with God that sets you up to have a pretty great day.
Now, don’t get me wrong, a great day doesn’t mean one that’s trouble free, it just means God is with you through it all, regardless. We’re asked to pray without ceasing in the bible (1 Thessalonians 5:17), so don’t you think it makes sense to start the day right away with a prayer? I do!
When I pray and when I write prayers, I always try to include scripture as the bible is pretty much the guide for how we should live as Christ followers.
I’m sharing this prayer to start your day with you and I hope it’s helpful to you and that you have a blessed day. 🙂
Prayer to Start Your Day
Thank you for this beautiful day that you have made. I thank you Father that I slept last night and woke up this morning. I understand Lord, that I have not woken up by my power, nor my might or by my alarm clock. But that it is by your grace that I’ve been given another day in this world. I ask Lord that you order my steps today; I ask that the Holy Spirit guide my thoughts, words and deeds. As I go into the world today Lord, I pray that my light shall shine before men, may they see my good works and glorify you, Father. May I be filled with the fruits of the spirit as I interact with people today and let everything I do today be done with love. As much as depends on me, I will live peaceably with all men today; I will acknowledge you in all my ways and you will direct my paths. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
