Thursday Morning Prayers

Let my words come to your ears, O Lord:

Listen to my voice, my King and my God.

As I make my prayer to you, Lord, listen to my voice in the morning;

in the morning, I will stand before you and await you.

Offer your gratitude to Him for at least two blessings in your life

Lord God, help us who hear your Word. Help us come with all our hearts to the Savior, who leads us into your arms. Hear our pleading and let your countenance shine over the world. Send a new age soon, a new salvation to the earth, to the glory of your name. Show us that what we have learned about you is the truth and that we may live in the truth and find the way through to heaven, to the glory of your name.

Hear us, O Lord our God. Often it seems that you are far away. But we know that our voices still reach you and that those roused by your Holy Spirit will become your workers for the Lord Jesus. Send your Spirit soon, O Lord God. Send the Comforter, who leads us into all light and all truth. We entrust ourselves and our daily lives to you. We want to be faithful. Help us to be your children, to remember at every step that we belong to you, Lord God. No matter how dark it is on earth, help us remember that we are with you, your children in eternity.

Dedicate to Him an email, letter, call or act of kindness that you will perform today to bless another

Lord, I look now to my day and the challenges known and unknown that they may serve your kingdom and glory.  Protect me and my loved ones from those forces that would do us harm or draw us away from you.

Tell the Lord of your love for Him

Today, Lord, I especially pray for the poor of this world.  Forgive me for letting my wealth blind me to their presence or worse harbor ill will for them.  You declared you favor with them.  Help me to do the same.

Preview your day with Him and then meditate and listen in silence for His guidance

Hear now my needs for this time and draw me near to you that I might be still and hear your voice.

By our prayers and observance, Lord, prepare our hearts to welcome the mystery of your resurrection

and to proclaim the good news of salvation.

Offer Him your plan today for an act of physical exercise of His temple, your body

Lord God, my life is meaningless without you. I pray that nothing will separate me from every day with you. Let me be under your loving and protective watch. Teach me how to be closer to You. And may I constantly be in check for my thoughts, words and action. AMEN
