a daily morning prayer

737 737 Melissa Mayer

Dear God, I give You this day. For Your glory, Your fame, Your will, Your way … I humbly submit my plans, desires, and wants. May You increase as I decrease. Today is Yours, Lord. Please guide me. Direct me. And help me to use each day for You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Lysa Terkeurst


I recently came across this prayer on author, Lysa Terkeurst’s facebook page, and I was immediately captivated by the powerful words. Surrendering each day to the Lord is something that I desperately want to intentionally do each day. It is a lot easier said than done, due to the very things that Lysa mentions in the above prayer- plans, desires, and wants. Those things can so easily get in the way of completely surrendering the day to the Lord and His plans, desires, and wants for us which are always the best. As a girl who loves her plans, it’s an on-going journey to loosen my grip on plans and give God room to work. Whenever I do give Him the reigns on my day, the results are beyond me and truly amazing in every way. I can’t wait to memorize this prayer and repeat it each morning, making it a daily routine and habit to let God be God.  xo melissa
