3 Versions of Short Daily Devotional Prayer to start your day with!

What better way to start your day than to spend some time saying a short daily devotional prayer? God cares about every single detail of your life. He longs to hear from you and have an intimate relationship with you.

It is so important that we spend time reading God’s word and talking to him on a regular basis. Just one of the many benefits is that people of faith are healthier and happier (research continually proves this).

Instead of letting ourselves stress over what we need to accomplish each day, how about we try taking a minute to focus on the fact that God allowed us to wake up once again for another day?

We’ll most certainly start the day in a better frame of mind if we allow scripture to soak into our hearts and minds and have a conversation with The Person who loves us most.

And, if you’re looking for a short daily devotion for each day, I would recommend signing up for Our Daily Bread devotions which include a prayer! The options are: Facebook, App, Email or Print. Sign up here: Our Daily Bread. 🙂

  • Heavenly Father,

    This is the day that You have made

    And I will rejoice and be glad in it!

    You are so faithful and compassionate.

    Please forgive me for my many shortcomings.

    I am so grateful for Your forgiveness.

    No matter what happens today,

    I pray that others would see Your love in me.

    May I be gentle and loving towards others.


    Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

  • Lord Almighty,

    In Your presence is fullness of joy.

    You are a shield to all who trust in You.

    Your grace is so much greater than my sins!

    Thank You for the gift of another day

    And for keeping Your loving eye on me.

    May I use the time You’ve given me wisely.

    Please teach me to number my days,

    That I may gain a heart of wisdom.


    Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

  • God of Heaven,

    You are my helper, and You are so merciful.

    Your unfailing love will never be shaken.

    In everything, You work for the good of those who love You.

    I often miss the mark, but Your love covers all!

    Please help me to be wise and avoid temptation.

    I pray for the strength and energy needed for this day.

    Please give me clarity of mind,

    That I would be fully engaged each single moment.
