Prayer to start your day
The bible is full of examples of how even Yeshua and His apostles arose early, during the 4th watch (3am – 6am) to pray. It is much easier to enjoy our life and be empowered when you begin each day praising the grace and gifts from Adonai who graciously provides answers and strategies for each day. We also recommend taking communion each morning, and you can anoint your head, heart, hands and feet with oil daily. But more importantly, give Him the first fruits of your time every day as you commit yourself to put Him first in all things so that you may also succeed in all things. Yeshua wants to walk with you though each day and overtake you with His goodness and love daily.
Let us pray
Good morning my King, thank you for a new day. Thank you that Your tender mercies are new each day. Thank you for Your faithfulness in loving me so. This morning I commit this day to You alone and I commit myself to opportunities to honour and bring You glory today through Yeshua ha Mashiach my Lord.
My Abba in heaven, sanctified be Your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done on in my life, my family, my nation and on earth as it is in heaven. Give me this day my daily bread and forgive me my debts as I also have forgiven my debtors. Lead me not into temptation but deliver me from the evil one. Abba keep my close under the shadow of your wings, safely in Your bosom as I walk through this day with You.
Lord, may nothing separate me from You today. Be my Shepherd, teach me how to choose only Your way today so each step will lead me closer to You. I put on my full armour and step out strong in You and Your mighty power. I thank you that I am your anointed daughter/son, born for such a time as this. I walk by faith and not by sight. I walk by Your word, not my own feelings. Help me to keep my heart pure and undivided.
You are "my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." (Ps 91) and I boldly embrace every opportunity. 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 because in You there is no darkness at all. Give me your eternal light. When I cannot see the way before us, may I continue to put my trust in you, that under Your guidance and protection I may be kept from falling this day, and finally, by your mercy, I enter into Your rest; through Yeshua my Lord.
Help me rest in the truth of You already see the ways I will fall short and mess up. Thank you that I do not fear because You uphold me with Your righteous right hand and that Your perfect love casts out all fear. So 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!
This day is Yours. My body is Yours. My mind is Yours. Everything I am is Yours. May You be pleased with me today. Amen.
Morning Prayer for Strength & Courage
Lord, I am weary and don’t know when this “race” will end in my life. I feel like I’ve been running forever, trying to outrun this trial. Help me to stop trying to outrun my pain but rather run with endurance the race you have set before me.
I know that because of you I am ultimately a victor over the trials in my life. I know that nothing in this world can separate me from your steadfast love. Please give me a measure of your love today; give me the strength to endure this trial.
Thank you for your love for me that never ends! And thank you for the crown of joy that awaits me forever in your Kingdom!
Lord, help me to hear you saying, "I am your hope" over all the other voices. Lord, your word says, you are the hope for hopeless so I'm running to you with both hands stretched out and grabbing on to you.
Fill me up with hope and give me a tangible reminder today that hope is an unbreakable spiritual lifeline. God, you know those things in my heart that I barely dare to hope for, today I give them to you, I trust them to you, and ask that you because I know that you can do more than I could ever guess, imagine or request in wildest dreams.
God, you are my hope and I trust you. I give it to You. Amen

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and self-discipline.2 Timothy 1:7
Now to Him who is able to do far beyond all that we ask or imagine, by means of His power that works in us Eph 3:20
Adonai-Ro-eh Adonai is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me: Your rod and Your staff comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of Adonai forever. Psalm 23
I am sure of this very thing—that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the Day of Messiah Yeshua. Philippians 1:6
We have this hope as an anchor of the soul, both firm and steady—a hope that enters the inner place behind the curtain. [a] 20 Yeshua has entered there as a forerunner on our behalf, having become ‘Kohen Gadol’ forever, according to the order of Melchizedek. Hebrews 6:19-20
Put on the Armor of God: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you are able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the worldly forces of this darkness, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armour of God, so that you may be able to resist when the times are evil, and after you have done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm then! Buckle the belt of truth around your waist and put on the breastplate of righteousness. Strap up your feet in readiness with the Good News of shalom. Above all, take up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of SALVATION and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Ruach on every occasion, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, keep alert with perseverance and supplication for all the kaddishim. Ephesians 6:10-18
So, I say to you, do not worry about your life—what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air. They do not sow or reap or gather into barns; yet your Father in heaven feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. Now if in this way God clothes the grass—which is here today and thrown into the furnace tomorrow—will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore, do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For the pagans eagerly pursue all these things; yet your Father in heaven knows that you need all these. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:25-34
