Mondays can be hard for some of us. So join us as we say a Prayer For Monday Morning.
Father God, I thank you for waking me up on this beautiful Monday morning.
Thank you because your mercies are renewed each morning.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work another week and provide for my family.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
Even though there is much to be done, I pray that you would help me not to be anxious, but to be encouraged by the presence of your Holy Spirit within me.
I know that I am bound to encounter difficulties and setbacks throughout the week. But I also know that you will give me the ability to overcome them and glorify you through them.
Lord, I pray that today would be a productive and fruitful day. Help me to work diligently and heartily, knowing that all that I do is ultimately in service to you.
Help me to use the gifts and talents you’ve given me to serve those around me in love.
Father, don’t let today be just another Monday. Help me to see today not as a duty, but as a privilege.
Remove this feeling of dread from my heart, and help me to see today as a brand new opportunity to live this wonderful and unique life you’ve given me.
Give me a positive, joyful attitude. Give me the motivation and the energy I need to not only make it through the day, but to cherish it.
God, I pray that you would deliver me from my tendency toward grumbling and complaining. Instead, help me to be appreciative of the many blessings you’ve given me.
Today is the day that you have made; and so, I will rejoice and be glad in it.
This is the day that Yahweh has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it! Psalm 118:24
Lord, whatever burdens are on my heart, I pray that you would take them from me now.
Help me to put aside the past worries that have been bothering me and look ahead to the bright future you have for me.
Many things are out of my control, but God, I am trusting that you are sovereign over all.
Finally, God, I pray that on this Monday you would help me to be a powerful witness for you. Let everything I think, say, and do be pleasing to you.
Help me to show your love to everyone around me – from my coworkers to my family to strangers on the street. When people interact with me, let them see your radiant love and peace inside of me.
And Lord, as I go through the rest of the week, I pray these same things for each day, for I am weak; but you are strong.
Your grace is sufficient for me in my weakness, and every morning your mercies are new.
Father, for as long as I live, I will never stop needing you. And so each day, I ask that you would renew me.
Fill me with your strength and courage. Let me be an instrument for your glory at all times, no matter the circumstances. I pray all of this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
