How do I pray for myself?,  Prayer Tips & Tools

How do you start your day?

Sometimes the morning can be such a rush!  Although, some time with God in the mornings will make your day so much better!  I have 3 kids and a husband.  During the week, I have to get the kids to school and do that whole run.  As well as, make my husband his coffee to go and breakfast.   I thought I should share what I do.

Regardless of all this, I have always made one point and that is to give the first fruits of my day to the Lord.  As soon as my feet hit the ground from getting out of bed, I just sit and pray; even if it is short.

This is what I say:  “Thank you Jesus for another day and great sleep.  I surrender this day into your hands and pray your will be done. I cover myself with the blood of Jesus from the tops of my head to the souls of my feet.   I give you all the praise, honor, and glory for everything in my life no matter what they look like to me.  Holy Spirit I call for your flow in my day and not mine.  Help me and guide me today Holy Spirit. In Jesus name, Amen!”

Then I get up and go to the bathroom and after I have washed my hands, I grab the anointing oil and anoint my head with oil while saying, “…You anoint my head with oil that my cup shall overflow” (Psalm 23:5)

I play worship music when I get to the kitchen to help my mindset and mood.

There you have it, a simple way to start your day.  After my family is out the door, then I sit with God and soak in His presence, waiting for Him to speak what He needs to.

Ask God what that best time is for you.  Regardless of when that best time is, give the first fruits of your day to God!

All the praise, honor, and glory to our God.  Be blessed!


Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
– Philippians 4:6-7
