If you don’t know how to pray, getting started can feel strange. So, check out this simple prayer to help you grow in your prayer life, and connect with God today! 

Starting Your Day Right

Is yesterday’s heaviness weighing you down? 

Starting your day right is important because it sets the tone for your whole day. Carrying yesterday’s heaviness is a sure way to feel weary before you even get started. 

But every morning, we have a new opportunity to embrace God’s compassion. 

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).

His compassions never fail us. So take the opportunity he extends to us to set down our weariness in exchange for the newness of a fresh start today. 

To get your day started right (or for a reset if it hasn’t gotten off to a good start), join us in this prayer for first thing in the morning:

A Prayer for First Thing in the Morning

Compassionate God, and giver of fresh starts and new beginnings, please fill me with your love this morning. May it empower me with new patience and joy for the day that’s ahead of me. Faithful Father, settle my spirit in strong confidence that your presence goes with me, giving me just what I need to make it through this day as a faithful steward of your love to those around me. Please bless my day, and I thank you for it! Amen.
