If there’s anything that keeps me centered and grounded throughout my day, it’s my morning mindfulness and my daily prayer.
I devote at least 10 minutes to this every morning, and it’s become one of my favorite parts of my day.
Spending time in silence with God early in the morning helps me recenter, realign, and refocus my thoughts and intentions. It’s easy to lose sight of His guidance as we move through our day, get caught up in our work, or stress out about the craziness of our world right now!
Each morning I open my Jesus Calling book and instantly feel calm, energized, and grateful.
I post my morning prayers and daily devotions each morning on my Instagram story, and I wanted to share some of my favorites!
Lord, thank you for showing me that the challenges I am facing are opportunities for growth. No matter where you lead me, you will be holding my hand every step of the way. I don’t have to worry about my success because none of my accomplishments have occurred without you. When my reserves run empty, I have a never-ending source that flows freely through my faith in you. Thank you that I can come to you with empty hands and an open heart.
Thank you for knowing my needs and worries. My main responsibility today is to simply remain attentive to your guidance. I know the plans you have for me are good. I can relax because you have everything under control. Every morning I have the opportunity to let you lead the day. Thank you for training me to reach for your hand instead of relying on my own sufficiency. Amen.
Lord, thank you for teaching me the discipline of thankfulness.
Thank you for prompting me to notice all the gifts you plant into my life each day. Gratitude interrupts anxiety and allows my consciousness to be lifted into heavenly realms above my circumstances. There is no need for me to try and control today through planning and evaluating. All I have to do today is be grateful and rest in your presence. Amen.
Lord, thank you for bringing peace to my restless heart. There is always going to be uncertainty in this world, but peace through your presence is certain.
Thank you for reminding me to step away from a “doom and gloom” headspace. As long as you are on the throne, I have all the facts I need to stay focused on my path. Hold my hand tightly today. Amen.
Lord, thank you for supplying me with what I need when I need it. Help me to direct all of my focus on you and your guidance so that I make wise and mindful decisions with your discernment.
If I stay focused on your plans, then I don’t have to waste any unnecessary energy on decisions that you didn’t intend for me to make. Thank you, Lord, for all that you have prepared me for today. Keep me faithfully in tune with your desired pace. Amen.
