A Daily Prayer
Note: Praying the Daily Prayer slowly will help you connect your heart and mind to God as you pray. Take a deep breath in and then exhale. Repeat by taking another deep breath and exhale slowly. The Daily Prayer is most helpful when read aloud.
Father, I come to you this day and bring my whole heart to you. I give my heart to you. I give my life to you. I surrender all that is within me to you.
Holy Spirit, come and fill me. I need you to renew me, strengthen me and lead me. Guide me as I pray and help me hear your voice.
God, I worship you. I declare that you are great and worthy of all praise, glory and honor. All praise is rightfully yours. You alone are God and there is none who is your equal. You reign and rule and are above all things. I worship you and bow to you, my God, my Savior, my King and the Lord of my life.
Jesus, I need you. I need you to help me love you, seek you and give my heart fully to you. You know what is pulling my heart and mind away from you. You know what is distracting me from seeking you and your Kingdom.
(Take a moment if needed to breathe, quiet your mind, and allow yourself to be fully present with God. If you are experiencing distraction of any kind, surrender those to Him until you feel you’re in a place to sit with and hear from God more fully.)
Come and unite my heart and mind to you. Give me a whole heart today and help me set my mind on you. Help me worship you and bow to you and you alone this day.
Jesus, thank you that I belong to you. Thank you for saving me, rescuing me from sin, darkness and the power of the enemy. Thank you for giving me a new life in you. Thank you for healing me and setting me free. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and for your promise to never leave me or forsake me. Help me receive your peace and your presence today. Help my heart to rest in you today.
God, you know me fully. You know what is within my heart that needs to be given to you so that I can receive forgiveness, healing and freedom. Please reveal to me whatever I need to confess and surrender to you.
(Take a moment to be silent before God and allow Him to speak to your heart. Confess any sins that need to be confessed and surrender anything God shows you to Him. Release any burdens you are carrying to God.)
God, you are my refuge, stronghold and deliverer. Thank you for giving me victory over the enemy. Thank you that I am covered by the blood of Jesus and I am holy and blameless in your sight. Thank you that I am your beloved son/daughter and I have everything that I need to walk in truth, freedom and victory today. I come against anything that has been raised up against me in the name of Jesus and demand it to leave and not return in the name of Jesus. I break off any tie and reject all lies from the enemy. I pray the blood of Jesus over me, my home and my family. God, put a hedge of protection over me, my home and my family. Command your angels to guard me and my family and protect us from any plans of the enemy today.
God, give me discernment to quickly recognize the lies of the enemy. Remind me of your truth and help me to believe your truth over the enemy’s lies. Give me wisdom and strength to walk in your truth today and reject every lie from the enemy. Give me a desire to seek you and your Kingdom above all else this day. Guide me in your truth and teach me. I put my trust in you and declare that you are my hope all day long.
God, I receive your peace today. I receive your joy, your hope and your love today. I receive your truth today. I choose to believe you and trust you with my whole heart. I choose to walk by faith today and not by sight. I choose to believe that you love me and that my identity is found in Christ. I am in Christ and Christ is in me. I declare that you alone are God and I worship you. I belong to you and I am your loved, blessed and anointed son/daughter. You have gone before me and hold me, my life, my family and this day in your loving and powerful hands.
Jesus, help me to see people through your eyes. Fill me with your love, compassion and kindness and give me your spirit of humility towards others. Holy Spirit, empower me to love, serve and bless others as you work in me and through me. Help me hear your voice and empower me to follow you today.
I pray that today is a day that I honored You, loved You with my whole heart and reflected You to those around me, for Your glory and the advancement of Your Kingdom.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
- Take 2 to 3 minutes and spend the time thanking God. Thank God for what He has done in your life and for the blessings that God has given you.
