It is not only a good practice to begin and go through each day with a daily prayer, but essential. Prayers are the only way we can communicate with God and the only way he can communicate back. It is essential to have a daily prayer routine beginning in the morning after waking up and in every stage during the day till you go back to bed.
A daily prayer routine starts in the morning with a prayer to thank God for waking up, then before each meal, also before facing any challenging situation for you or those around you and finally before going to bed. some prayers you can use are prayers like:
Daily Morning Prayer
“God, may nothing separate me from You on this day. Lord, please teach me how to only choose Your way today, so that each step I take will lead me closer to You Lord. Help me walk by Your Word and not by my feelings. Help me keep my heart pure and uncompromised. Protect me from my own sinful thoughts, words, and actions.
Keep me from being distracted by my wants, desires, and thoughts on how things should be. Father help me to embrace all that comes my way as an opportunity, rather than a personal inconvenience. Finally, help me to rest in the truth of Psalm 86:13, “Great is your love toward me.” You already see the ways I will stray and mess up.
But right now, I consciously embrace Your whisper of absolute love for me into the deepest part of my heart. I gratefully accept that Your love for me is not based on my performance. You love me, blemishes and all. That is amazing. But what’s most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Father, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. Amen.”

Daily Prayer for Strength
“God, you are the Holiest above all others, and all of the strength that I need comes from your hands.
I do not ask, Father, that you take this trial away. But Instead, I simply ask that Your will be done in my life. Whatever that maybe, that is what I want.
I admit that it can be tough, Father.
Sometimes it feels like I can not go on. The pain and the fear are a bit too much for me, and I know that I do not possess the strength to get through this on my own .
I know that I can turn to you, Lord Jesus and that you will hear my prayers. I know that it is not your intent to bring me to this point and simply leave me in this state alone.
Please, God, give me the strength that is needed to face my day. I do not have to worry about tomorrow.
If you grant me the strength that I need today that is all I will need.
Lord, please keep me from sinning during this trial. But instead, help me to keep my eyes on you. You are the Holy Father, and all of my hopes rest in you.
Thank you for hearing my prayer.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Dear Lord Jesus Christ, You overcame Satan in his attempts to tempt you to show Your power with a spirit of self-control. Now I call upon Your blessed Name.

Lord give us, we pray, such a sense of all your mercies that our hearts may be unwaveringly thankful, and that we show forth your praise, not only with our words, but also in our lives, by giving up ourselves to your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,be all honour and glory, forever and ever.
