Dear Lord, thank you so much for another day of life on Earth. Thank you for another beautiful sunrise to enjoy. Thank you for the wonderful sounds of nature, from the cool breeze brushing through the trees to the birds singing melodies. You are a wonderful God, full of grace and mercy. I praise you for allowing me another day to spend with my family. I love you Father! Amen.
Prayer for Strength
Dear Lord, I pray that you would give me strength to be strong for You in the world today. Lord, you know the struggles that I will face today. Be with me as I go through them. Carry me if I am too weak to move. If I stumble in them, forgive me Father. When I succeed in them, I will praise You! You are worthy of all praise and honour. Amen.
Pray for your Family
Dear Gracious Father, I praise You for my family. Thank you for my spouse. Even in his/her weaknesses, I love him/her unconditionally. Thank you for my children. Every time I hear the pitter-patter of their feet across the house I smile. Joy overwhelms me Father! Be with my family today as they go their separate ways. Bring us all back home safely to each other I pray. Amen.
Pray for Career Growth and Development
Dear God, I thank you for my job. You have provided me with a steady income, and I thank you. I pray that you watch over me today at work and I pray that there are no accidents, so that everyone can go back to their homes. I thank you that my job has provided an income to support me and my family. I thank you for the provisions that you have given to me, my house, car and food. I pray for safe travels to and from work and I pray that you will use me as you see fit today for Your Glory. Amen.
Pray for the Spirit Contentment
Dear Glorious Father, I pray that I will stay focused on you today. I pray that You will constantly remind me to be content in all my circumstances.

I praise Your Holy Name! Amen
Pray for more Opportunities for You and others
Dear Lord, I pray today that I will yield my spirit completely to You, that You may use me as You please. I pray that You will provide me opportunities to show people how much You mean to me. Give me discretion to know what to say and how to say it. Make me bold enough, that I may proclaim salvation cheerfully and joyfully. I pray that the seeds You allow me to plant will grow and mature. I pray that You, Father, will water the seeds that You allow me to plant today. I am forever grateful for the cross; may I proclaim it in a contagious way today. Amen.
Daily Morning Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank You for this day.
I thank You for my being able to awake once again, to see, and to hear this morning.
I’m blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God.
You have done so much for me, and You continue to bless me.
Please forgive me every day for anything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to You, and I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe from all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each day to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.
Let me continue to see sin through Your eyes and acknowledge it as evil.
And when I sin, let me repent, and confess with my mouth my wrongdoing, and receive Your forgiveness.
And when this world closes in on me, let me remember the example of Jesus to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.
It is the best response when I’m pushed beyond my limits.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those who are lost and can’t find their way.
I pray for those who are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don’t know You intimately.
I pray for those who don’t believe, and I thank you that You are in my heart and that I do believe and have true faith in You.
I believe that You change people, and You can change all things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers, and for each family member in their households.
I pray for peace, love, and joy in their homes that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.
I pray that every eye that reads this knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than You.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.
I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees them and every mouth that confesses them willingly.
This is my prayer, and I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful, and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
Most holy and adorable Trinity, one God in three Persons, I believe that Thou art here present; I adore Thee with the deepest humility, and render to Thee, with my whole heart, the homage which is due to Thy sovereign majesty.
O my God, I most humbly thank Thee for all the favours Thou hast bestowed upon me up to the present moment. I give Thee thanks from the bottom of my heart that Thou hast created me after Thine own image and likeness, that Thou hast redeemed me by the precious blood of Thy dear Son, and that Thou hast preserved me and brought me safe to the beginning of another day.
I offer to Thee, O Lord, my whole being, and all my thoughts, words, actions, and sufferings of this day. I consecrate them all to the glory of Thy name, beseeching Thee that through the infinite merits of Jesus Christ my Saviour they may all find acceptance in Thy sight. May Thy divine love animate them and may they all tend to Thy greater glory.
Adorable Jesus, my Saviour and Master, model of all perfection, I resolve and will endeavour this day to imitate Thy example, to be, like Thee, mild, humble, chaste, zealous, charitable, and resigned. I will redouble my efforts that I may not fall this day into any of those sins which I have heretofore committed (here you may name any besetting sin), and which I sincerely desire to forsake.
O my God, thou knowest my poverty and weakness, and that I am unable to do anything good without Thee; deny me not, O God, the help of Thy grace; proportion it to my necessities; give me strength to avoid everything evil which Thou forbiddest, and to practice the good which Thou hast commanded; and enable me to bear patiently all the trials which it may please Thee to send me.
The Morning Offering
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer
You all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this
day, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the
intentions of all my associates, and for the
intentions of the Holy Father this month.
Prayer of Daily Service
Make us worthy, Lord, to serve our fellow men throughout
the world who lives and die in poverty and hunger. Give
them through our hands this day their daily bread, and by
our understanding love, give peace and joy. Make us, Lord,
worthy to serve our brothers and sisters who are scattered
all over the world, who live and die alone and poor. Give
them today, using our hands, their daily bread. And, using
our love, give them peace and happiness.
