Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank You for this day. I thank You for my
being able to awake once again, to see, and to hear this morning.
I’m blessed because You are a forgiving God
and an understanding God. You have done so much
for me and You continue to bless me.
Please forgive me every day for anything I have done,
said or thought that was not pleasing to You, and
I ask now for Your forgiveness. Please keep me
safe from all danger and harm. Help me to start
this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day to clear
my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.
Let me continue to see sin through Your eyes and acknowledge
it as evil. And when I sin, let me repent, and confess
with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive Your forgiveness.
And when this world closes in on me, let me remember
the example of Jesus — to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.
It is the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way.
I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don’t know You intimately.
I pray for those who don’t believe, and I thank you that
You are in my heart and that I do believe and have true faith in You.
I believe that You change people and You can change all things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers, and for each
and every family member in their households.
I pray for peace, love, and joy in their homes that they
are out of debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no
problem, circumstance, or situation greater than You.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.
I pray that these words be received into the hearts of
every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.
This is my prayer, and I pray in the name of Jesus
Who art in he Our Father, Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us; and
lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
