7 Powerful Family Morning Prayers to Start Each Day

A family morning prayer is vital in establishing a more substantial and closer relationship with God and our family members.

When we wake up in a bad mood, it affects our day in a big way. The same goes if we wake up in a good mood. Saying morning prayers is a great way to start one’s day, but we can make it even better when we say them with our families. We set a good mood and tone for our day, and these prayers teach us to seek God’s presence and will at the beginning of our day.

What is a Family Morning Prayer?

Spending alone time with God is great because we get to know more about God and ourselves. Praying with our family in the morning will help us set the tone for the whole day, and it will teach us to prioritize God every day.

By doing this, we also set an example for the children, the future generation, that they will not depart from until they get old. Spending time with family members to gather and pray in the morning might seem daunting, but it is a privilege given to God’s children.

Prayer Points to Include in a Family Morning Prayer


A powerful morning prayer includes praise that is rightfully given to God. It is good to open the prayer with words of praise. It can help set the tone of the prayer, and it can also serve as a reminder that we worship and pray to an Almighty God who loves us.


With how the world has become today, protection is now a necessity. We can always ask God for protection from harm, temptation, sin, or any other harmful things that can come our way. God loves us and wants only the best for us. Protection is always readily available to God’s children if we just ask.


We are God’s children, and loving parents always strive to provide the best life for their children. He wants us to have life and have it to the full, so we can come in front of God and ask for things we need.

Aside from material things, we can even ask God for wisdom, strength, guidance, and many more! The best part is we know that He will provide us with anything we need out of His love.


We can ask God for anything, but we should also express gratitude for the things He gives us. Let us thank our Lord Jesus Christ for the rest, food, wisdom, and anything else He provides to our lives. God is truly good, and we should be thankful for all His blessings. We should look forward to everything He will bless us with.

Why Say a Family Morning Prayer?

Praying together as a family can benefit us a lot. It is a display of our unity in our faith and a collective desire to know God more and spend time with each other as we begin our day. This practice will not only strengthen our relationship with God but with one another as well.

How to Pray as a Family in the Morning

There are no strict rules when it comes to prayer, so there are no rules we should strictly follow about praying together as a family as well. Still, there are things we can do to make it a better experience for everyone. We can share a short devotion and spend some time studying God’s word before praying.

We can also schedule members of the family to lead the prayer each time. The whole family can also make a list of prayer requests that they can pray for together. It can show each one that each family member cares for their concerns.

There are many things we can do to improve the practice of praying together. Making sure that it is a pleasant experience for all will help establish it as a routine for the family. It is also very important for parents to be models when it comes to the walk of faith.

In Summary

Communication is crucial in any relationship, and prayer is our communication with God. Communal prayer is a good way to deepen our relationship with God and each other. There are times when communication within the family becomes some kind of a challenge, and we might feel at a loss as to how to establish it.

Morning prayer for a family can help a great deal because it shows care for faith in each member of the family. Knowing that their family takes the time to pray for them can make them feel good and valued. We should establish a routine for praying together not because we have to but because it is so beneficial both for our faith and family.
