How you begin your day is very important. Our Lord has gifted us with every day being an opportunity for a new beginning.
Starting our day talking to God, reminds us of his never-ending love. Jesus died so that we could have the chance to start over every time we sin. Take time today to remind yourself of his promise and to bring his promise into your morning meeting. You never know, you may be participating in the great commission and make a big difference for someone sitting with you in the room.
Hosea 6:3 reads “Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth”. If you do your morning prayers and ask God to come into your life, he will meet you where ever you are. All you have to do is take the time to ask.
I hope you enjoy these morning meeting prayers. Remember you can ask our Lord to show up at any time of day, it doesn’t just have to be in the morning. I did a lot of quick prayers with this category for everyone whose meetings start late! If you have any specific morning meeting prayer requests, please leave them in the comments below.

I think praying before a morning meeting can help set everyone in the right direction. It is a great way to set positive expectations, while also showing those around you that you care about them.
Psalm 5:3 teaches us that morning prayers are important “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly”.
I do believe that we should lay everything at the Lord’s feet, and then give him the ability to show up for us time and time again. I think starting and continuing this practice will build a strong bond between those you are meeting with.
I pray that you use your morning meetings as a way to begin the day with a fresh start. Whether that’s an official meeting for school or something more informal, I hope that you give our Lord all of your requests and you believe he will provide.
