Why say a morning prayer

1. To reduce stress and anxiety

Sometimes, just thinking of the day you have ahead of you can stress you and make you feel so anxious even before the day starts.

But going to God with a prayer and dedicating your day to Him will help you feel some sort of calmness because you know that once you pray to Him, you won’t face your day alone.

2. To practice gratitude

When we pray, we give thanks to God for all the good things in our lives. This helps us to be more positive as we think of all the positive things in our lives that we are thankful for.

And when you think positively, you feel positive and you act positively. So prayer helps you start your day on a positive note.

3. To seek guidance and protection

God knows best, so when you pray in the morning and dedicate your day to Him, He takes control of your day and shows you the right thing to do.

When you say a morning prayer, you can happily go on with your day because you know that God is in control.

He will show you the right decisions to make, the right path to take, and the right things to say and do.

He will also give you the strength to go on with your day and protect you from whatever problems that may come your way.
