Monday Prayers are special because Monday is the first working day of the week. And the beginning of everything matters. It can affect the result of that thing. Like the Bible says, “When the foundation is faulty, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3).
Starting a new week with the Monday morning prayer is the best thing you can do for yourself: business, academics, and all your endeavors. Even though we are to pray without season, there are particular times we need to consider for special prayers. For example, the beginning of the year, the starting of a new journey, moving to a new location, starting a new day, week and month, and much more. These starting prayers are not regular prayers.
Hence, it requires more commitment and intense effort. They are prayers to decree, declare, command, and commit the new week into God’s hands. Spiritually, the beginning of every new thing can control the rest of the activities,
3 Main Reasons Why You Need Monday Prayers
There are several benefits of prayers; however, as earlier stated, Monday morning is the beginning of a new week and hence needs special prayer. Here are some of the reasons why you must take Monday prayers seriously.
Thanks and praise is the only food we can offer unto our God. God appreciates our sincere thanksgiving; Philippians 4:6 explains that we should let our thanksgiving be more than our supplications. Give thanks to God for the grace to see another day and for the opportunity to witness another week. With faith, thank Him for all he will do in the week.
A sincere thanksgiving can open incredible doors, the spiritual door of the new week, without making any request. Make appreciation a culture and watch multiple doors of greatness open for you. Before you request God, sincerely thank Him for what he has done and has yet to do.
God is the Alpha and Omega, the maker of heaven and earth. He knows what will happen tomorrow as the master planner of our lives. He knows who we are and what we’ll become. Thinking we can do everything by ourselves without the knowledge of our creator is ignorance. God knows our desire, but He wants us to ask. Asking God or committing things into his hands is a sign of acknowledgment.
When you commit Monday morning into God’s hands, you acknowledge him for who He is to you. It is a sign of surrendering to God to take charge of your activities for the week. The best and first thing to do on a Monday morning is to commit your business, career, family, and ways to God’s hands before you step out of your door.
Through our supplications, we make our request known to God. There is a saying that a closed mouth is a closed destiny. After thanking God for His faithfulness and committing your ways into His hands, next is to ask and tell God how you want the week to be. Use the medium to pray for God’s blessings upon your marriage and career. Request with faith during your Monday morning prayers and experience God’s faithfulness.
