Do you need a good week this week?  Searching for a prayer to pray to start your week off right?

We would all like to have a good week, wouldn’t we?  Or perhaps a better week than last week?  We certainly do not want a bad week!

These 10 practical prayers for a good week cover a spectrum of circumstances that may arise in your life, so choose the one that fits your heart’s needs at the moment.  You can easily change the wording as well to suit your situation right now.  You may find yourself returning to these prayers throughout the year to pray for a specific good week that is approaching!

The Lord is good,
    a refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1.7, NIV).

You may want to pray a prayer for a good week because you’re concerned about church, work, or school. Or perhaps you have a focused week approaching a certain area of your life.  You want it to go well, to be a success, to make it through.  Why not pray for those things to the God who cares for you?

God hears our prayers and we can place our worries and concerns upon God, according to scripture.  So, praying for a good week to happen allows you to release all of that to God, and that enables you to focus fully on the week and what you will experience.

Prayer For A Good Week

Lord God, I enter into this prayer time with you because I want to have a good week this week.  Last week was a bad week in just about every way.  Something negative happened every single day last week.  I’m overloaded as a result.

I not only want a good week, Lord, but I need a good week.  I’m just asking for average and normal days throughout the week.  Nothing too high and nothing too low. I need a reset week this week, which, compared to last week, will be a good one!

I’m trying to have a good mindset as I begin this week and I believe praying to you will help me with that.  Please hear my prayer through Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer For A Good Week At Work

Dear God, I pray for a good week at my workplace this week.  We’ve had a couple of mishaps and everyone seems on edge, from the managers to the employees.  I pray we can learn from our mistakes and that everyone treats what happens as a learning and growth experience, not a time to yell and reprimand.

I pray for understanding and insight, and I pray for wisdom and guidance as well.  Help each of us to be calm and patient as we download what happened and stay objective.  I really like where I work and want the good work culture and energy to continue there.  So, I’m praying to you for a good week at work, Lord, in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For A Good Week At School

Dear Father in heaven, next week is the first week back at school after our break and there is so much stuff I have to do.  I really need to have a good week, from the homework that is coming due, to the special events I need to attend.

In between doing all of that and working after school, I need you to help me focus and be calm each day.  I pray to you now to help me remember that you are always with me.  There is nowhere at school that I go, that you are not already there.  Thank you Father for your presence in me and with me.

I am grateful that no matter what, I can pray to you at any time, about anything.  This truth gives me peace.  Hear my prayer through Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayer For A Good Beginning To The Week

Lord, it’s the start of another week and I barely am caught up from last week.  It’s like the days and weeks are all blurring together that I can hardly remember what day it is.  I am feeling overwhelmed and overloaded.

I am asking for a good beginning to this week, if for nothing else than to help me distinguish this week from the previous one.  I need a fresh outlook and a fresh start this week, Lord.  I ask for your safety and guidance and for deep rest at night this week.  Let today be the new beginning of a really good week!  In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Prayer For A Good Week Away At Camp

Dear God, I am getting ready to go away next week to camp and I want to have a good week while I am there.  I found out there will be a few people I know there, which is okay with me, as there will be some familiar faces.

I pray for a good week because I really need a breakaway.  I pray that I can meet some new people and form some good relationships while I am there.  I enjoy the vibe of life at this camp and I’m looking forward to getting back there.  Thank you for providing the money for me to go and enjoy this experience.

Help keep me and everyone there safe, and help us to get along and have fun together. I pray all of this in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For A Good Week At Church

Dear God in heaven, I pray this week at our church.  From Palm Sunday to Easter, we have several worship services and other events planned and we want it all to go smoothly.  I pray for a good week so people can experience the fullness of your love during Holy Week.

I pray for each of the worship services, that in each one, your grace and mercy be made known in a real way to all who worship.  I pray for the special events to be well-staffed and well-attended.  I give you thanks for the many volunteers that offer their time this week.

Thank you God, for your Son Jesus Christ, whom we focus on and remember this week, from his entry on Palm Sunday to his death and resurrection at the end of the week.  May we celebrate with joy on Easter Sunday!  I pray all of this in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer For A Good Week Of Job Training

Dear God, I will be away from home and away from my workplace this next week to attend a job training off-site.  I pray for my travel there to be uneventful so that I arrive safely.  I pray for my stay there to be restful at night and a learning experience during the day.

I am looking forward to growing in my skills with this training and I am grateful my company pays for me and other employees to develop in our work area.  I pray that I will make the most of this opportunity, so keep me attentive and focused.  I will miss being away from my family but I know this is part of what it takes to be promoted so I am doing it.

I hope I can meet a few other people and build some networking connections in my job field as well.  I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Final Thoughts

Praying for a good week ahead may seem inward focused, but really, when you pray for a good week, you’re praying for you to have a good week, as well as everyone around you.  It would be hard for you to enjoy a positive week while everyone around you is steeped in burdens and worries.

When you pray to God, you are, in essence, reaching out to God, who is good, all the time.  And all the time, God is good!  The Apostle Paul reminds us:

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good” (Romans 12.9, NIV).

Prayer is a way to reach out to God, to cling to God.  May your prayers help your faith be made sight and may you grow as you pray to God about everything in your life!
