Saturdays are the best days of the week for many people. It is a day of rest, house cleaning, spending time with family and friends and attending social gatherings.
With the hustle and bustle of Saturdays, it is easy to get carried away, forgetting to pray. The Bible commands us to pray every day with a thankful heart as we bring our petitions to Him.
If you are looking for inspiration for your Saturday morning devotion, below are nine special prayers to invite God’s blessings and presence.
Let’s pray together and praise the name of the Lord!
1) Short Saturday Morning Prayer
I feel blessed to be alive and well this Saturday morning. As I prepare to dive into the activities of the day, I invite Your presence to guide me. I commit every second of this weekend to Your hands.
Let this not be an ordinary Saturday but one full of Your presence. May I walk in Your goodness and spread happiness all around me.
I pray in Christ Jesus, Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Saturday marks the beginning of an eagerly awaited weekend. For some, it is a time to put up their feet and unwind from the week’s busy schedule. For others, it is a time to catch up on the week’s leftover things to do.
Whatever your goal is for the weekend, it is always good to start with a Saturday morning prayer, asking the Lord to help you accomplish what is ahead.
The book of Psalm 118:24 tells us to rejoice and be glad in the day the Lord has made.
While it’s good to be happy for the weekend, remember the Bible says to rejoice every day.
2) Saturday Morning Prayer and Blessings
I thank You for carrying me all through the week and for waking me up this beautiful Saturday morning.
I pray that You will fill me and my loved ones with rest and blessings. Endow me the strength to accomplish whatever’s ahead of me this Saturday.
While I enjoy personal time to relax and unwind, help me be a blessing to others and not entirely focus on myself. I invite peace, happiness and joy into my home. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Saturdays are largely associated with “me time“. People often think about shopping, watching TV, going out with family and loved ones or just spending time indoors.
But do you also consider how you could bless others on Saturdays?
Philippians 2:3-4 informs us not to be driven by selfish ambition or conceit but in humanity, consider others more significant than ourselves. That we should not only look to our interests but also to those of others.
Keeping this in mind, Saturdays can also be spent in selfless acts, such as:
- Checking up on a friend;
- Visiting a loved one in the hospital;
- Volunteering for church activities.
3) Catholic Saturday Morning Prayer for Protection
“Lord Jesus Christ,
Thank You for guiding and protecting me during the weekdays. You were with me as I went to work and engaged with other activities every day. I invite Your presence to be with me this Saturday and the rest of the weekend.
Please send Your Holy angels to protect me. Shield me with Your blood of protection, keeping away from all traps the enemy may have set to harm me.
Send forth Your Holy Spirit to whisper into my ear the places I shouldn’t go or the people I shouldn’t engage with that don’t bring glory to Your name.
Holy Mary mother of Jesus, intercede for me and let Your grace always be with me. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Saturdays can be extremely busy, from traveling to attending social gatherings and other engagements. It is the day of a haze of undertakings outside the weekday norm.
It is recommendable to ask for the Lord’s protection before starting your Saturday.
You need the Almighty to surround you with protection, guarding your path from accidents, illnesses and other unfortunate incidences.
If you do so, God promises to go with you and fight for you against the wicked (Deuteronomy 20:4).
In this unpredictable world, we need the Lord’s protection, especially on Saturdays with many tasks ahead of us.
4) Saturday Morning Prayer for a Good Day at Work
“Lord, thank You for blessing me with my job this Saturday. As I go to work, help me to have a lovely day and find happiness in what lies ahead.
Though I wish to be home resting like many other people, the nature of my job requires me to work on Saturdays. Please give me the strength to meet my work goals today without grumbling.
Help me do my best and embrace all You have planned for me this Saturday. Join me at my workplace and help me be the best I can be. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Not everyone is lucky enough to rest on Saturday. Some jobs require one to report to work on Saturday.
It’s not easy working on Saturday while many others are resting. You might be tempted to complain or report to work half-heartedly.
Remember you should do all things without grumbling or disputing, according to Philippians 2:14. Therefore, refrain from negative talk.
Ask for the Lord’s forgiveness if you find yourself complaining about working on Saturday, and ask Him to give you a thankful heart.
Count your blessings and be grateful. Someone out there desires the job you have.
5) Saturday Morning Inspirational Prayer
On this Saturday, I leap into all that You placed ahead of me. Might I embrace each part of this glorious day, overcoming the challenges and engaging with the fun and laughter with family and friends.
Lord, help me relish the beauty of the world around me. Let me drive, walk, sing and bask in the freedom of the day.
Thank You for Your love that envelopes me, helping me to see the great things You have set in place for me. And Your goodness and mercy shall follow me today and forever. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
The norm of resting on Saturday isn’t unbiblical. Even God rested after creating the Heavens and Earth for six days (Genesis 2:2).
However, for an inspirational Saturday filled with God’s presence, morning prayer is the best way to kick off the weekend.
It not only strengthens your spirit but helps you organize your Saturday. That way, you can accomplish your tasks and still have time to enjoy and commune with the Lord.
God is waiting to hear and communicate with you. Remember to find a comfortable spot free from the buzz of everyone else in the house.
It is much easier to get your Saturday morning prayer going before starting your pastime.
6) Saturday Morning Prayer for Family and Friends
“God my Father,
I pray this Saturday for my family and friends. I entrust them in Your care and pray that You protect and guide them today.
Dear Lord, meet them at the point of their needs and fulfill their heart desires. Be their keeper and grant them the opportunity to enjoy this Saturday. Touch them so they may rejoice in the joy of Your salvation.
In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
No man is an island. Every Saturday, we look forward to catching up with family and friends.
As you care and love them, you can pray for their wellbeing.
There are countless reasons to pray for your loved ones apart from God’s protection and blessing. You could pray that those who don’t have a relationship with the Father get the opportunity to encounter Him on a deeper level.
Bear in mind that we are not only placed in this world to enjoy life. God purposes that we share the light of salvation in a desperate world.
You can purposefully pray for your family and friends to become beacons of light to those around them.
7) Short Saturday Morning Prayer for Good Luck
I have been feeling down on my luck this past week. I humbly pray that You change my luck this Saturday. Let me see Your hand at work in my relationships, work life and responsibilities.
I believe with all my heart that You will do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that I could ask for or imagine as Your Word says in Ephesians 3:20. Above all, help me to see Your blessings and be grateful for the simplest things.
In your Holy name, I pray, Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
You might have experienced a difficult week where nothing went as you had planned. And all you desire for your weekend is good luck.
It’s completely normal because everyone wants to end their week joyfully.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28.
Furthermore, remember that you have countless things to be grateful for. Being alive and well is in itself good luck, isn’t it?
God looks forward to blessing those who express gratitude for the little things. Gratitude also helps you not feel like the unluckiest person in the world.
Despite your problems, there is always someone else experiencing worse.
8) Prayer for Good Health
I ask for the prosperity of my body this Saturday. Please grant me a sound mind, strength in my body, incredible agility and a strong immune system. The healthier I am, the more effectively I can accomplish Your purpose for me today.
Father, I thank You because Your Word bears promises of good health for my body. I claim these promises and invite them to release power into my life.
In the precious name of the Lord, I ask and believe, Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
When you are burdened with the anxiety of poor health, God can offer healing and peace.
Daily life is littered with all sorts of pollutants that damage our well-being. The best time to ask for God’s healing is on Saturday as you unwind and digress from the weekly happenings.
Invite the Almighty to heal your aching heart, relieving you of any brokenness, resentment or depression.
Remember that mental and physical health is crucial for a thriving spiritual life.
So don’t just pray for your body’s strength but for your mind and soul.
9) Prayer for a Beautiful Day
“Father in Heaven,
Thank You for waking me up today. I know countless things could go wrong, but I choose to focus on Your promise of hope and greatness.
I ask that You help me have a beautiful day, despite life’s unpredictable circumstances. Show me how I can help someone who is hurting so that I don’t just focus on my issues but on being a blessing.
At the end of the day, remind me to delight in every small and large blessing from You. Amen.”Original StAgnes.net prayer. Copying prohibited, except with source.
Our lives are unpredictable, and anything can happen at any time, whether good or bad.
When things aren’t going as expected, we can focus on the bad and magnify the negative. Instead, we should look at the little blessings that can turn any day into a beautiful one.
When you start your morning with the Lord, you’re releasing the rest of the day to Him, letting God take control of your day.
With God’s guidance, you’ll start your day with His grace and mercy, ready for whatever life brings.
Should I Pray Every Saturday Morning?
Yes, you should. Prayer is a way of communing with the Lord.
In fact, you shouldn’t just pray on Saturday morning but every morning, inviting God’s presence in your life.
Will the Prayers Help Me Have a Happier Day?
Yes. The prayers will welcome God to take the steering wheel of your day.
As you release yourself to Him, you’ll be happier knowing that He is in control.
Can I Pray More than One Prayer?
Absolutely. You can pray all the above prayers on your Saturday morning devotion.
You can ask God for a beautiful day, you can commit your family and friends in prayer, pray for good health and good luck, and ask God for His protection throughout Saturday as the Holy Spirit leads you.
As you prepare to start your Saturday, remember that it’s the little things that count. Be grateful for waking up, take a look outside your window, enjoy nature and welcome the Lord to govern your day.
When you wake up, you should greet the Father and ask for a beautiful day for you and your loved ones. From there, you can focus on enjoying the day and thanking God for every good thing in your life.
