Daily Prayer for Today
Today is Tuesday, January 3, 2023
It is not only a good practice to begin and go through each day with a daily prayer, but essential. Prayers are the only way we can communicate with God and the only way he can communicate back. It is essential to have a daily prayer routine beginning in the morning after waking up and at every stage during the day till you go back to bed.
A daily prayer routine starts in the morning with a prayer to thank God for waking up, then before each meal, also before facing any challenging situation for you or those around you, and finally before going to bed. Some prayers you can use are prayers like:
Daily Prayer for Strength
Oh Lord my God, You give me all the strength that I need in life. As I undergo this trying moment, offer me a yoke that is good to bear and a burden that is light.
Dear Father, You may take away this burden that I have, but if it is Your will that bears it, then shower me with Your strength and fortitude.
Dear Lord, do not leave me alone for sometimes I feel like letting go. The fear and the pain that engulfs me is a bit too much, and I feel that I do not have the strength to push through on my own.
Lord Jesus, You have assured us that when we turn to You, You will always hear our prayers. I know that I am undergoing this because of a sin I have committed or in preparation for higher service to You. Therefore Lord God, grant me the strength that I need today, and may Your will be done in my life.
Forgive me my sins and guide me so that I do not fall into temptations. Focus Your eyes on me for all my hopes rest in You. I pray this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
Daily Morning Prayer
Lord God, let me not be separated from You today. Help me to choose to do Your will today and may everything I do be good and according to Your Holy Will. May I be of benefit to my family, friends, neighbours, and the entire community.
Dear Lord, May every step I take and every move I make lead me closer to You. Help me to not work by my feelings, but by Your Word. Protect me from my own sinful thoughts, words, and actions and keep my heart pure and unblemished.
Lord God, suppress my selfish wants and vain thoughts and help me embrace Your Wish for me today. Father, help me to accept all that comes my way today as a lesson and an opportunity rather than an inconvenience. Father, always help me to remember that You are always a gift in my life. Amen.
Daily Bread Prayer
“Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are Yours, now and forever. Amen.”
Daily Prayer for School
Lord God, we bring our school into Your mighty hands. May You bless the learners, teachers, and staff who work here so that the learning process, to discover how great You are, happens smoothly.
May You, Almighty God, make our school be a place of great discovery, adventure, and also a place where we all learn to love as well love to learn.
Help us to respect, value, and treat each other as brothers and sisters. We pray this through Jesus Christ our Lord and saviour. Amen.

My Lord Jesus, have pity on me and all my loved ones and protect us this night. My dear Blessed Mother Mary pray for me for protection this night.
May St. Joseph, angels, and all the saints in heaven pray for me tonight so that I may be protected from snares of sin and evil. Amen.

Almighty and ever-living God, I am guilty of forgetting that You are with me always. I also forget how good You have been to me. I am sincerely sorry for that.
Dear Lord, I am thirsting to know You more and more. I want to better understand Your promises and Your teachings so that I can learn to put You first in everything I do in life.
Oh Lord my God, You told us not to worry about tomorrow but focus instead on our God-given tasks today. Help me then to live one day at a time.
Tonight Dear Lord, I place my trust in the promises You have made to mankind that when we know, love, serve praise and glorify You, You will take care of all our relational, spiritual, emotional, financial, social and physical needs. Help me to worry less and to trust You more and more. In Jesus’ name, I pray and believe. Amen.

Father, I cannot count the many blessings You have given me. I cannot thank You enough for the overflowing graces and unconditional love that You have showered down upon me without expectations and without measure.
Dear Lord, I beg You to continue showering me with Your immense blessings, love, and graces and protect me from the evil one. Lord, I worship and adore You and I bless Your holy name forever and ever. Amen.

I offer You my life and being and I submit to Your Holy Will and dedicate myself today to Your divine service. Amen.
Daily Meditation Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, You taught us to slip away to a quiet and serene place to pray and meditate when the world’s turbulence comes our way.
Lord Jesus, You gave us the perfect example of always praying and meditating when our willpower is pushed beyond limits, for it is the best alternative to resulting in anger, anxiety, and frustration.
Lord God, whenever we are unable to pray, You usually know our needs and the wishes of our hearts. Please, sweet Jesus, help us to continue doing Your Holy will and walking in Your path.
We also pray, dear Heavenly Father, for those who do not believe in You and have no personal communion with you.
Walk beside us dear Lord so that we can become the salt of the earth and the light of the world. May Your peace, joy, and love be felt by all people we come across.
May we become living witnesses of Your goodness and providence, and may Your mighty name be glorified forever and ever. Amen.
Daily Prayer – Jesus Daily Prayer
“God, thank you that you are the one who can change me. Lord thank you that I do not have to change myself. Thank you, Jesus Christ, for dying so that we could have a life. Help us not to judge others for their sin, but to treat them with love and humility. Help us come to you just as we are: broken, flawed, but fully alive and revived by the power of your blood on the cross. Thank you Jesus! The gospel is such good news. Help me live into that each day. Amen.”
Daily Prayer for Myself
“Lord, please pardon me for the times I have said and done things without foresight. Father, please remind me to consider self-control as “God-control”. It is not simply trying to control myself with human effort. But it is instead depending on the Holy Spirit to guide my way and choices.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, You overcame Satan in his attempts to tempt you to show Your power with a spirit of self-control. Now I call upon Your blessed Name. I ask You to bless me with the same virtue, which is very much needed in most aspects of my life. Lord, I seek Your assistance and guidance. May Your Holy Spirit fill me with power, as I come in prayer and raise my petitions before You.”
Daily Prayer – Prayer for peace
“Lord, who is more than we can ever understand,
help us to find you, and you alone.
Father help us to stand before all that we can do
and look for what you would do, and emulate that. Lord
lift from us our need to achieve all that we can be
and instead, surrender to what you want us to be.
Give us ways to refrain from the busyness
that will put us on edge and off balance,
give us today your peace.”
Daily Prayer – Prayers of Hope
“Blessed father, I am your humble servant,
I come before you on this day in search of hope.
For there are times when I feel helpless, and
there are times when I feel weak.
Father, I pray for hope.
I need hope for a better future, hope for a better life, Lord
I need hope for love and kindness.
Some people say that the sky is at it’s
darkest just before the dawn.
I pray that this is true, for all seems dark at the moment.
I need your light, Lord, in every way. Father
I pray to be filled with your light from
head to toe. To soak in your glory.
To know that all is right with the world,
as you have planned, and as you want
it to be.
Help me to walk in your light, and live
my life in faith and glory.
In your Name. I pray. Amen.”
