Prayer To Start The Week

A beautiful inspirational and motivational prayer to start your week with a positive mindset and energy, in bold, warm rich colors. Use this religiously every Monday morning or any other day of the week to spread positivity.

It’s that time again! A new week has sprung upon us (it seemed as though the weekend would never come) and what better way to start this week than by reciting a prayer. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your weekly Monday morning prayer or something you can use at the end of each day, this post is for you.

We are likely to think that our prayers don’t make a difference, or aren’t even listened to by God. But when we become desperate for God’s help, we realize the power of prayer. Prayer is not about forcing God to do your bidding or making him take action for you; rather it is a means of communication between you and God through which your bended knee garners God’s attention. You can always ask for forgiveness from your weaknesses and being forgiven for the mistakes put before Him. Meanwhile, have a look at this prayer to start your week — only if you like it.

End of the year is a good time to reflect on what we have done, to say thanks for all the blessings and also to think about our plan for the next year. Pray for a week of grace, peace, unity and love to bring us peace in this world.

Prayer To Start The Week

A morning prayer is a wonderful way to focus your time and attention on seeking God’s plan for the day ahead. Whether you need encouragement, peace, strength, or rest, God can meet you in a very real and present way when you come before Him with a humble heart. Seek God’s presence each morning before your energy and attention are pulled by all the tasks you have ahead.

Prayer To Start The Week

1. A Morning Prayer for God’s Presence 

Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. Help me walk by the Word and not my feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided. Protect me from my own careless thoughts, words, and actions. And keep me from being distracted by MY wants, MY desires, MY thoughts on how things should be. Help me to embrace what comes my way as an opportunity… rather than a personal inconvenience. And finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, ‘Great is your love toward me.’ You already see the ways I will fall short and mess up. But right now, I consciously tuck Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I recognize Your love for me is not based on my performance. You love me warts and all. That’s amazing. But what’s most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. Amen.
– Lysa Terkeurst

2. Today with Jesus

Lord, Jesus, today is Your day, and I want Your will to be done. So, whatever happens, hold my hand and let’s face it together. Amen. – Back to the Bible

3. God’s Promises for Today

Heavenly Father, I have been so wishy-washy when it comes to taking hold of Your promises and making them mine. But today, I’m putting my foot down! I will not allow my human reason to talk me out of my spiritual inheritance. I will set my foot down on every promise that You have given me today. I’m going in! In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Sharon Jayes

4. Good Morning Lord Prayer

Good morning, Lord! Today’s a new day, a chance for a new start. Yesterday is gone and with it any regrets, mistakes, or failures I may have experienced. It’s a good day to be glad and give thanks, and I do, Lord. Thank you for today, a new opportunity to love, give, and be all that you want me to be. Amen. – Rebecca Barlow Jordan

5. Fill Me With the Spirit Today

Dear Lord, as we rise to meet each new day, please let us be filled with Your spirit. Wherever we go, let us spread love, joy, peace, goodness, and faithfulness. Let us desire to become more like you and to worship you in all we do. Help us desire these things so much more than the sin that entices us. Thank you for always going before us. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Dr. Charles Stanley

6. A Daily Prayer of Thanksgiving

Dear God, Thank you for your amazing power and work in our lives, thank you for your goodness and for your blessings over us. Thank you for your great love and care. Thank you for your sacrifice so that we might have freedom and life. Forgive us for when we don’t thank you enough, for who you are, for all that you do, for all that you’ve given. Help us to set our eyes and our hearts on you afresh. Renew our spirits, fill us with your peace and joy. We love you and we need you, this day and every day. We give you praise and thanks, for You alone are worthy! In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Debbie McDaniel
