In our fast pace lives we sometimes leave out the most important part of the day. Some of you may be thinking that its breakfast. Yes, that is important for your natural man but what are you doing for your spiritual man. Did you pray this morning? If you cannot say a resounding yes, no worries I have just the thing for you. Read the words below out loud.
You have brought me to the beginning of a new day. As the world is renewed fresh and clean, so I ask You to renew my heart with Your strength and purpose. Forgive me the errors of yesterday and bless me to walk closer in Your way today and with you. This is the day that you created I begin it anew; shine through me so that every person I meet may feel Your presence in me. Take my hand, precious Lord for I cannot make it by myself.
Father this morning, I pray that You give me strength today, to be strong for You in this world full of temptations. You know that there are struggles that I will go through today. I pray that You be with me as I go through them. Carry me when I am too weak. Allow me to be strong in Your strength.
Father, I do not know who or what will cross my path today. But I do know that You are my rock and my fortress. You are my shield and my strong tower. Help me to anchor myself in You today. Teach me how to stand strong in You and choose only Your way today. Help me walk by Your truth and not my feelings. Help me to embrace anything that comes my way as an opportunity to see You at work and as opportunity to point others to You.
Father, I thank you for waking me up today. For giving me another sunrise to enjoy. Thank you grace and mercy. Thank you for your loving kindness. I praise You, Father, for allowing me to live another beautiful day in Your Kingdom.
Now if I asked you again if you prayed, your answer would be yes. Starting your day with God is as easy as 1-2-3 and so is praying. So, on tomorrow before you head out your door for the day, say a prayer and if you do not know what to say pull this out once again. Use it as often as you need to and eventually you will not need it all.
Apostle T. P. Lane
