Good morning Lord! This is the day that you have made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. With gratitude, I thank you for preserving my life for one more day. With gratitude, I thank you for your ultimate gift of love for me, in the form of your son and the sacrifice of his life on my behalf. Because of this overwhelming gift that I often cannot comprehend, I humbly submit to you. I know Lord that I am a mere human and cannot instruct you, but you Lord can instruct me. So teach me your ways that I may rely on your faithfulness.

Teach us to number our days and to use our time wisely. I don’t know what this day holds, but I know that you hold the day. It was you that laid the foundations of the Earth and therefore understands every part of it. I know that you keep the sun in the sky, the stars in place, and have created this Earth for me to inhabit and enjoy. As I step out today, may I not stumble, may I not lose focus, be with me, and never leave my side. Amen.


Let God handle your day by offering your first few hours to Him. Start with “Good morning Lord” and pour out Your love at His feet, basking in the newness of His presence in the morning. Do not be limited to these prayers but tell him all that You want. He is Your Father and He is ready to listen. Nothing can ever replace this. Give it a try with these prayers.
