This article will primarily be talking about what is termed “Monday Morning Prayers”. In many places, Mondays are seen to be the start of a new week. To some, they approach this day with excitement, while some feel sad about it.
This excitement comes with the hope and firm belief that God has something great in stock for you in the new week. Monday morning prayer is the type of prayer one should engage in before the start of a new week, and I do not joke with Monday morning prayer and declaration. Monday Morning Prayer gives me an advantage over the enemy every day of my life.
Starting a new week can be frustrating without being hopeful. Monday mornings are the most difficult time to wake up, coupled with the stress of the previous day being Sunday. Anxiety, too, makes it hard and annoying.
Monday morning prayers are prayers of hope and faith, thereby making us believe that God will make everything work out for them in the new week. Sit back, take this article seriously and see how your life will be transformed for the better.
Why You Need Monday Morning Prayers
As stated earlier, Mondays are known to be the first days of the week. How you start your Monday can go a long way to determining what the rest of the week will look like. As humans who are meant to live by Faith and not by sight.
The word of God says we have to be very mindful of how we kick-start a day. To avoid starting a day on a bad note, get God involved in your activity. It is very funny when people are said to start a day without getting to know from the Holy Spirit what the day holds. Job 38:12 instruct us to command our morning.
You can never spiritually command your morning except through prayers. A praying man, in my opinion, is a winning man. You can not be faithful in your place of prayer and be defeated in battles, it is impossible.
Satan knows very well that if you start a day or a week on a good note, he will have no opportunity to come in between. This is the major reason it makes us feel it is unnecessary to pray and commit our Mondays to God.
Mondays are the point of contact for the rest of the week
It is very important to be careful about how you start a Monday morning. This is because a little mistake can give Satan the opportunity to come in and ruin things for us. If you could joke with any day of the week, never joke with a Monday morning.
This article is actually written on a Monday, so I will tell you a story of how I almost ruined the week.
I woke up this morning feeling tired and lazy to pray; when I checked my time, I thought I was a little behind schedule. I needed to run up to the office. The Spirit of God kept telling me to pray as I used to, which I partially ignored. I said a little word of prayer and rushed out to the office; on getting there, I discovered that the day was not as smooth as it ought to have been. A lot of regrettable things happened, which had the capacity to ruin the whole week in my career path.
It was at this point the Holy Spirit made me know that Monday mornings are very important; these are times one program the week. The Bible has made us understand in the book of Joel 22: 28-29 that if we declare a thing, it will be established, and the Lord will make the light shine on our way.
The best time to declare anything is at the beginning of that thing; the beginning of every week is a Monday morning.
I am not trying to say that failing on a Monday outrightly means failing the entire week. All I am trying to say is that failing on a Monday can affect your productivity on other days of the week, except you do something about it, and the only way to do anything about it is still through prayer.
