Powerful Family Morning Prayers : Children of God, it should highly be noted that the way you start your day has a lot to tell how your entire day will go. God is our daily guardian. It is therefore pertinent to start everyday with him by thanking him for the gift of life and then handing over your day, your intended activities and all your family and loved ones into his able and caring hands.
Be rest assured that any day being started with God can never be a failed day, no matter how difficult it goes. Most times we tend to feel that our day has gone the wrong way or has gone without any achievement, but it is very important to note that the fact that you went through the whole day and came to the end of the day alive is enough testimony.
Be reminded that appreciation moves God to Act. At the end of the day, kneel down , thank the Good Lord for protection you through out the day.
The most powerful morning prayers is that one filled with praises and thanksgiving. Family morning prayer is best said with the members of the family except when they are unavoidably absent. Saying our family morning prayers together is advisable because God himself said, where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there in their midst.
However where other members are not available, we can pray for them and have every member of our family connected to the prayer.
Short powerful morning prayer is a weapon for the destruction of any evil plans against us.
Family morning prayer should be structured in this manner:
- prayer for the forgiveness of our sins
- Requests ( under request, the following are important prayer points for family prayers; family unity and continuous love amongst members of the family, family protection and guardians, request for strength and wisdom to face the day and more importantly the Grace and favor of God in all you do)

Morning Prayer for God’s Presence
Lord, may nothing separate me (us) from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions. And keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be. Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity… rather than a personal inconvenience. And finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, ‘Great is your love toward me.’ You already see the ways I will fall short and mess up. But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize Your love for me is not based on my performance. You love me warts and all. That’s amazing. But what’s most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. Amen.

Give us wisdom to make the best choices, fill us with a desire to seek after you more than anything else in this world. Let your Spirit and power breathe in us, through us, again, fresh and new. Thank you that you are greater than anything we may face in our day. Thank you that your presence goes with us, and that your joy is never dependent on our circumstances, but it is our true and lasting strength, no matter what we’re up against. We ask that your peace lead us, that it would guard our hearts and minds in you. We ask for your grace to cover our lives this day. We love you Lord…we need you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Debbie McDaniel

Help me to embrace anything that comes my way as an opportunity to see You at work and as an opportunity to point others to You. Thank You that You love me and nothing can ever take that away from me! Even if I fail today and fall short, You whisper Your unconditional love deep into my soul and remind me that Your mercies are new every morning. That truly amazes me, Lord.

I know that because of you I am ultimately a victor over the trials in my life. I know that nothing in this world can separate me from your steadfast love. Please give me a measure of your love today; give me the strength to endure this trial.
Thank you for your love for me that never ends! And thank you for the crown of joy that awaits me forever in your Kingdom! – Adrian Rogers
PRAYER FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS
Lord, because of the sin of our first parents, death entered into the world, for the wages of sin is death. We have all sinned and we all fall short of the mark. We justly deserve to be cast away from Your presence. Yet, out of Your abundant love and mercy, You sent Your only Son to become one with us. On His shoulders were laid our sins and He absorbed death into Himself. Lord, through the precious blood of Your beloved Son Jesus, forgive us our sins and restore us to life eternal. Amen.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Traci Miles
A Morning Prayer for Cares and Concerns
Dear Father in Heaven, so much in my life is broken. I have so many concerns and cares, and they weigh me down.

Please help me learn to cast my cares on You as I learn what it means to rest and trust in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Chrystal Evans Hurst

Lord, your word says, you are the hope for hopeless so I’m running to you with both hands stretched out and grabbing on to you. Fill me up with hope and give me a tangible reminder today that hope is an unbreakable spiritual lifeline (Hebrews 6:19-20). God, you know those things in my heart that I barely dare to hope for, today I give them to you, I trust them to you, and ask that you because I know that you can do more than I could ever guess, imagine or request in wildest dreams (Eph 3:20). God, you are my hope and I trust you. Amen. – Wendy can Eyck
