#prayers

Prayer is a vital part of our daily lives. It helps us to direct our focus and our attention in a way that helps us to set the pace for what is ahead for us each day. It is our way of communicating with God and for Him to give us answers, instruction, guidance and direction.

We are made wiser in the things of God as He reveals His plan and His heart to us by way of His Holy Spirit. It could be that in that hour we may just need some encouragement, to experience His peace, to find strength or rest.

Whatever it is, we can be assured that God will meet us at the point of our need when we come humbly yet boldly before His throne of grace in prayer each day. Our aim must be to seek God’s presence. Here now are –

7 simple but effective morning prayers to pray:

Prayer #1 – God’s Unfailing Love

Dear Lord, according to your word, your love is unfailing. Let nothing whatsoever separate me from your love. Let your love inflame my heart and may it burn brightly with a passion. When the cares of life gets overwhelming, and the raging storms threaten to swallow me, remind me Lord of your truth that no powers of hell or here on this earth can separate me from you.

The areas in which I am likely to mess up and fall short and be tempted to yield to shame and condemnation, help me to hide your word deep in my heart that says, “Great is your love towards me.” [Psalm 86:13]

I acknowledge that your love for me is unconditional and is not based on the things I would do, or say or even the places I would go. Remind me not to take your love for granted but to treat each day as a gift to be able to experience such amazing love like yours. Amen

Scripture to meditate on:

“..I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow-not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. v39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below-indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” [Romans 8:38-39 NLT]

  2. Hey Yvonne,

    Great post. Meditation and prayer are so important especially in times of feeling fear, anxiety, or worried for safety. But aren’t they the toughest times to mediate? There can be a war going on in my mind when these feelings hit. I know I need to sit and breath in these times but its a struggle. Most of the time I meditate and feel better for it. Balanced.

    Regardless of my mood, there is a belief within me that is unshakable. We all have our blueprint, a path and a special gift to offer the world. That never wavers. There are many things in life that I can think and then doubt but that is one belief that never gets rattled.

    People think that our religious beliefs rely on little evidence that there is something bigger out there. But when I look in the mirror, when I see nature, animals, oceans. When I look at another fellow human being, the evidence is all around. Thanks for the reminder.

    Rachel.

    • Hi Rachel,

      It’s a pleasure seeing you. As always you bring value to the forum. I also appreciate the review on the post.

      Breathing exercise is very therapeutic and I believe we all get to that place where we need to stop and make a conscious effort to make every breath count especially where there is fear, worry and anxiety. When meditation is added to that one can feel very empowered.

      Have a great day/weekend. Cheers! 🙂
