Early Morning Prayer

FORGIVENESS AND REPENTANCE 
Isaiah 1:16-18

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

I pray that you may understand that the Lord is a forgiving God. I pray that you will purify yourself, make yourself clean and stop doing wrong in His sight, for this is what God desires. May you remember His promise, that if you admit your sin and ask for His forgiveness, your sins that are red like scarlet shall be made as white as snow. I pray that when you accept the Lord’s forgiveness and turn away from sin, you may always do what is right by seeking justice and helping others.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Early Morning Prayer

O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth forever. He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and Thy glory above all the earth. Amen!

For what we have received, O Lord, we are devoutly thankful. May it be health to our body, as Thy presence is health to our souls. Amen!

Thou hast been very good to us, O Lord, through all our lives, and these are only the latest of countless bounties. To Thee be thanksgiving and glory, world without end. Amen!

Lord, we thank Thee for this meal. We will again set about our tasks; and may it be with the renewed sense of Thy loving presence and tender care. Amen!

We thank Thee, Jesus, our bountiful Provider, for what Thou hast given us. As Thou hast fed us here, continue to feed us, we pray Thee, with the Bread of Life. Amen!

Personal Gifts

If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.
~ Romans 12:8 [NLT]

Our culture sometimes pushes us to be something that we’re not, but this is a good reminder that each one of us is unique with our own talents. We should treasure the things that we’re good at and do those things well. You can honor God by putting your talents to good use. Do them with passion, kindness and vigor.

Way of Life

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.
~ Psalms 16:11 [NLT]
Knowing God is the most important thing. Without the knowledge of who God is we miss out on living out our purpose for our lives.  We are created to be in relationship with God.  Connecting with God is how we find joy! If you don’t know God, take a moment and pray and invite Him into your life, so you can experience the joy of His presence. 

Late Night/Early Morning Prayer

STEWARD OF GOD’S CREATION
Genesis 1:29-30; Numbers 35:33-34

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

Give thanks to the Lord for the blessings of His creation. I pray you will know how to exercise proper stewardship over these blessings. Whether they are possessions or relationships – may you take care of them. Do not pollute or defile these that have been given to you. Instead, cultivate and enhance them. I pray that God may find you a responsible steward of all His creation.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Early Morning Prayer

LOVING GOD’S WISDOM 
Proverbs 4:5-9; James 1:5

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You Today

I pray that you will love wisdom and understanding, for it will protect and watch over you. May you not take lightly the wisdom of God’s words. May you consider wisdom supreme. I pray that you will seek it, regardless of the cost. May you esteem and embrace wisdom, for it will exalt and honor you. Wisdom will set a garland of grace on your head. If you lack wisdom, may you seek it from God, who gives it generously.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Prosperity

It’s easy to look at prosperity as something that’s “bad.” But what is true prosperity? Prosperity is you having everything you need to complete your assignment! Additionally, prosperity is not just for you. The good Samaritan had enough not just for himself, but also to help someone who was in need. Today, know that wanting to prosper is not a bad thing. God wants to take you to a higher level so you can be a blessing to others!

Prayer:

Father, I want to prosper. I don’t want to have enough just for me—I want to help those around me as well! Use me, Lord. Prosper me so I can be a blessing to those around me. In Jesus’ name, amen!

True Ministers

In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind.
~ 2 Corinthians 6:4 [NLT]

We know hard times come. The light we can shine to others reveals our faith in God. Our faith can persist even in the face of hardship. It is a demonstration of our trust that the Lord is good. When calamity happens the last thing we want to be is patient. We want to hurry up and move beyond the troubles. This is the time God has been preparing us for and we have the opportunity to grow closer to God. If you are in the middle of calamity, muster your patience one day at a time.

By Himself

After telling everyone good-bye, he went up into the hills by himself to pray.
~ Mark 6:46 ) 

Prior to this verse Jesus had performed a miracle by feeding thousands with only a bit of food.  His immediate reaction is to draw away to pray and rest.  Praying has a way of filling you up with energy, restoring, and recharging.  It’s very important if we have intense schedules or physically demanding duties, we take time to reconnect with God and restore ourselves.  If you are able, take today to draw away, in order to draw close to the Lord.  If today isn’t possible, plan a day this week to do this.
