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.

Dear Father, I pray that as I begin the new week, You will guide me to live and walk in purpose.

Monday Prayer To Get Through The Storm
Lord, I want to stay in my bed and let the bad days pass me. I have no will to get up and face this new week. I am like a child, willing to hide beneath the covers cowering in fear and letting life win this round. Yet, I remember that You are my Father and promised never to leave or forsake me.
So Dear Father, I come humbly before You, acquiescing that I have no powers nor strength to face these storms. I ask that You walk me through the bad days and guide me when my strength fails.
Father, You have been my close companion, and I know I can trust You. So, I am willing to place my hands in Yours, even as I walk through the turbulent water and fiercest fires.
I pray that You help me to obey Your instructions to jump into the deep, even when I would rather stay on the shores of life. Dear Lord, I know these storms will pass, and I will come out victorious. So, I choose to forget logic and reasoning ad hold on to You. I love You, Father, and I know that You have perfect and grand plans for me. Thank You for leading me per time. Amen.

Monday Morning Prayer To Overcome Temptation
Dear Father, my desire beyond all else is to live and pattern my life after Christ and be worthy of His calling. I want to be a beacon of light at work, church, and home. I desperately yearn to grow in my Faith and live out the love walk, showing mercy and love to those around me.
Yet, I often fail at being the person You want me to be, and I realize that I cannot live like You by my strength.
So, Lord, I come humbly before You to ask for help in this time of need. The temptations get stronger as I yearn to live a holy and quiet life. You have promised I will not face a greater temptation than I can bear, but I do not want to face even the littlest parts of life without You.
So, I surrender my will and heart to You. I pray for seeing eyes and hearing ears. I pray that You take charge of my emotions, feelings, and reaction, tuning them to Your will.
If I fall into these temptations as I live through the week, help me remember that You are a prodigal Father that loves me regardless. Remind me of Your never failing love and compassion. Thank You, Father, for loving me as much as You do. Amen.

Lord, I pray they will be like arrows in a warrior’s hands as they start the new week. I ask that You will equip them with all that they need for the events that lay ahead. In mercy, I pray that You will lift them in Your arms when their strength fails them and give them instructions on the right choices and decisions.
Lord, these children are for signs and wonders in the land. I pray that if they lose their way and fall into darkness, You will shine Your Truth in their path and help them to find succor in You. I trust that they are safe at Your watch.
