A Morning Prayer to Use Daily
Many people are unsure of the best time to pray: in the morning before the day started or at the end before the day ends and new one begins. The honest answer is that you should choose the time that suits you best, where you can truly set aside some time for prayer. In this article we will explore the idea of a morning prayer. This includes looking at powerful morning prayers that you can use every day. Each morning prayer will also be a daily prayer meaning you can use it every day.
Daily Prayer vs Morning Prayers
You may be wondering if there is any difference between good morning prayers and daily prayers. The only real difference is that a daily prayer is simply a prayer you would recite each day whereas a morning prayer relates to the time of the day when the prayer is recited. So in this article we will provide some basic prayers which you can use both as a morning and a daily prayer.
Guide to Praying
Before we look at some examples of a morning prayer, we’ll explore the basics of constructing your prayer. You can of course use the examples we provide but many people prefer to either adjust it to make it more personal or come up with their own morning prayers altogether. So what should you include in a prayer? Well, if you’re directing the morning prayers towards a specific being such as your Guardian Angel or an Archangel then you’d want to start by addressing them.
The content of the prayer is entirely up to you. If you have a difficult day ahead then you may wish to pray for strength or if you’re giving a speech then perhaps confidence. Of course your prayer doesn’t have to be entirely about you. You can always pray for someone you love. Many people will include their family and friends in their daily prayers. You can even go to a grander scale and pray for the population of your country or even of the world. Don’t limit yourself, just look inside your heart and determine what deserves a mention. It’s important to trust your gut instinct in this regard.
Example of a Morning Prayer
We’ll now take a look at a couple of examples of morning prayers:
Dear Archangel Raphael, I ask that you invoke your incredible healing ability towards my friend, Rick. His age is presenting him with many problems and he doesn’t look after himself the way he should. I pray that you give him the strength to limit his alcohol consumption and to face his family who he has strayed away from over the years. I ask that the heavenly bodies watch over him as they did yesterday and the day before that. Thank you for all that you’ve already done and thank you for hearing my prayer. Amen
Remember that you can adapt and change as much (or even all) of these morning prayers to suit your own circumstances. No one prayer is better than any other. As long as you pray from your spirit with a selfless heart then you can rest knowing that your message will be heard. If you’re ever in doubt, the internet has plenty of resources including websites which provide the prayer of the day. Here is another powerful morning prayer:
Dear Archangel Jeremiel, I pray to you now as I am in need of your guidance and wisdom. I face many challenges today both in my work life and my personal life. I’m not sure that I have the strength, courage or knowledge to face these challenges on my own. I ask that you watch over me today and provide me with any help that you can. I am eternally grateful! Amen
