We get closer to God
We address our Lord, thanking Him for giving us one more day in our lives and asking for His love, blessing, help, and protection. Then, in morning prayers, we draw closer to God, expressing our love and trust in Him.
Still don’t know how to start? First, if you have the psalm you love the most, please read it; it will be the base for all your Christian Morning Prayer. Then, if you have some spare minutes, Morning Prayer could be finished using some of your words.
Christian Morning Prayer Structure
If you don’t know how you should start with the Prayer or in what order it should go, it’s not a problem, and we hope this will help. Jesus gave us a pattern to pray (Matthew 6:9-13).
Structure of the Short Good Morning Prayer:
- A prayer of petition for yourself.
- Prayer of intercession.
You are free to pray as your heart desires. But experience shows that it is good to have a structure for Prayer.
- Worship and Thanksgiving should come first. It’s the morning; you should be grateful to God for the grace to see a new day. Praise God in songs; Psalm 59:16 “But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.”
- The next thing is the Prayer of the petition. Trust God with all your day’s challenges, goals, and desires. Ask whatever you want for the day; ask for protection and provision (Matthew 7:7).
- Also, ask for forgiveness according to Matthew 6:12: “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.”
- Also, in the Prayer of intercession, do not forget your family and loved ones. Especially if you know they need God’s help or protection.

Best Time for Christian Morning Prayer
Psalms say: “In the morning, O LORD, hear my voice. In the morning I lay my needs in front of you, and I wait.” (Psalm 5:3), “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.” (Psalm 119:147).
Looking at these passages of Scripture, we can see that the best time to begin morning prayer is early in the morning, as soon as you wake up. The day starts when you wake up, and from then on, you need God’s help and protection, His care, and blessing in everything you do.
Best time: starting early in the morning, as soon as you wake up, is best.
Morning Prayer Duration
Sometimes we rush in the morning because we wake up late and want to get to work or anywhere early, so we think we have missed the proper time to pray. Prayer is close communication between you and God. You can be in a hurry, but you can still pray while doing chores or getting dressed.
It is just like making a phone call while in a rush. God understands and hears you; you only need to talk to Him. No matter how short your Prayer is, God hears it.
When you make your request known to God from your heart, with deep faith, He will surely answer because He looks at your heart.
What do you need for Morning Prayer?
Your faith and open heart are essential for the Christian Morning Prayer.
If you do not have much time this morning, offer the Lord a heartfelt word of Thanksgiving and ask for His care and help in your daily work.
Also, it is advisable to have some positive declarations that we can say in the Morning Prayer when we are in a rush. Positive words cause positive things to happen.
The declarations should be Bible-based and taken from the Word of God. Šiuos žodžius gali užrašyti. Tačiau kiekvieną kart ištark juos iš širdies.
