A Prayer for First Thing in the Morning

A Prayer for First Thing in the Morning

Good morning, Lord!

Thank you for a new day. Thank You that Your compassion is renewed every morning.

Great is Your faithfulness and Your steadfast love, o Lord!

I don’t know what all is going to happen today, and how much I’ll get done, but You do.

So I give this day to You.

Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, Father. Energize me for Your work,

because You know how tired these bones are. Awaken me to the wonder of Your salvation,

and quicken my spirit to the reality of Your work in my life.

Lord, my mind is filled with creative ideas, but they’re all jumbled. Holy Spirit, come and hover over my mind like You hovered over the waters at creation and speak order out of the chaos! Help me to cease striving and to trust that You will give me all I need today to do the work You’ve given me to do.

You will be faithful to complete the good work You’ve started, and as I step out into my day, I declare Your sovereignty over every area of my life. I entrust myself to You and ask that You use me however You see fit.

This day is Yours. My body is Yours. My mind is Yours. Everything I am is Yours.

May You be pleased with me today.

Amen
