Following are some morning prayers you may want to pray or use as an outline for your own daily morning prayer:
In the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus gave us the model of how to pray that includes all these elements: adoration, submission, petition, repentance and praise:
Our Father in heaven, May Your name be honored. May Your kingdom come soon. May Your will be done on earth just as it is in heaven. Give us our food for today,And forgive us our sins, Just as we have forgiven those who have sinned against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation,but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom, And the power, and the glory forever. Amen
Daily Prayer of Commitment
Father, Thank You for awakening me to this new morning and for keeping me through the night. Thank You for your lovingkindness that never ceases and Your compassions that never fail but are new every morning. I commit this day to You Lord. Help me to put You first in my thoughts and in my heart. And help me to magnify and glorify You in all I do and say. In Jesus’name I pray. Amen
Beloved Prayer of Saint Francis Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
Short and Simple Prayer of Commitment: Prayer by Fr. Judge, late NYFD Chaplain
Tell me where You want me to go; Let me meet whom You want me to meet; Tell me what You want me to say, And keep me out of Your way!
Beautiful Prayer by Cardinal Merciar
O, Holy Spirit, beloved of my soul, I adore You. Enlighten me, guide me, strengthen me, console me. Tell me what I should do...give me Your orders. I promise to submit myself to all You desire of me and to accept all that You permit to happen to me. Let me only know Your will.
Short and Simple Prayer of Commitment
Dear God, I give you this day All of my work and all of my play All that I do and all that I say....Amen
