What you do at the start of your day determines how your whole day will go. This means that whatever you do in the morning must prepare you for whatever’s to come. As Christians, it is customary for us to pray at bedtime before we close our eyes to sleep. But do you pray in the morning as well? Starting your day with God sets you up for anything that might come before you.
Praying in the morning helps ease the impending stress that is to come during the day. Putting your worries aside and praying helps you start your day right, energizing and comforting you to tackle whatever the day throws at you.
Start your day with God.

There were times in my life when I was angry, sad, and lonely, but seeking You, Lord, has given me the peace that I so long searched for.
Accepting You as My Lord and Savior has satisfied my every first and hunger for eternal love and peace.
Each day, You give me the drink of Love, feed me Your Word, and shower me with Your grace.
For that, Lord, I am grateful, and I will forever thank You, Lord, for Your blessings.

Prayer for Strength and Courage to Face the Day Ahead
Dear God, I wake up today in prayer before I begin my day.
Each morning, I have a list of things to do, and sometimes, they become too much.
I often don’t want to do the things I need to do, but I have no choice.
So as I work, study, and take care of my family and myself, I pray for strength, dear God.
God, please give me the courage to say no to things that do not add value to my life as a Christian.
Please give me the strength to resist temptation, prevent me from making sins, and give me the courage to do the right things at all times.
I am weak and weary, God, and sometimes, life gets the better of me that I forget to call on You.
But today, God, I am making it my goal to be steadfast in my purpose, and that is to be a loyal and faithful Christian.
Give me strength, peace, and purpose, Lord, as I start my day.
I want to fulfill Your Word and Your plans for me, so please, God, help me to become the Christian You set me out to be.
And that’s a faithful, courageous, and graceful child of God.
Please give me the strength to face today, and each of the days You give me, Lord. Amen.
