God provides us with the hope and strength to overcome the obstacles in our lives, even illness.
Jesus, and eventually His disciples, prayed for healing for people. We can ask the Lord to heal our bodies. We can also ask Him to keep our bodies healthy.
The Lord makes promises in His Word that He will answer our call for health.
He says in Jeremiah 30:17, “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord.” The reason for our health is trusting Him for everything.
Should I Pray Every Monday Morning?
Mondays are a very important part of your working day.
It is the day that you need to ask the Lord to go with you for the rest of your week. It is a day when many people are distracted (perhaps even you), and there is a need to focus your day on the Lord.
For this reason, it is an absolute necessity for you to pray every Monday morning. It is the start of your daily prayers as well.
Will The Prayers Help Me Have A Happier Day?
Being in Christ definitely makes us happier, but it does take a little effort. This simply means that we have to read His Word, meditate on it, and, most of all, pray.
Prayer draws you closer to God, and that will make you a more joyful person.
Start praying on a Monday morning and every other day, and you will be glad. The Bible says:
“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” — Psalms 118:24.
Can I Pray More Than One Prayer?
When we pray, we need to spend quality time with God. We have to follow His “Our Father” formula, and, hence, it should not be a quick, rushed time.
This means that you can pray as many prayers as you want.
However, it should be meaningful and come from the depths of your heart. You can even repeat the same prayer that you feel comfortable with, as long as it has true meaning.
These Monday morning prayers are here to help you. You can use them to start your routine.
However, once you have settled into your routine, you should try to say your own unique prayers and speak directly to God.
Monday is often referred to as “blue Monday,” but we can change that with our morning meeting with the Lord. When you start praying regularly for Monday and the week ahead, you will find that it makes things easier.
Things do become easier, especially when you consciously invite Jesus into your day and week. As we said before, it is a day the Lord has made, and we must be glad and rejoice in it (Psalms 118:24).
