The Best Prayer to Pray Every Day in our Catholic Faith.The best prayer every day offers your day to God.
The Most Important Prayer to Pray Every Day
Motherhood. There is never a dull moment. Most of our mornings start with jumping into parenting rather than beginning at a slower pace.
One morning our alarm fails to go off (or, we failed to set it because we were doing at least five different things the night before). Another morning we are awake way tooooo early due to a sweet little one not sleeping. Yet another morning might just start out perfectly.
Each day is often completely different!
As a woman of faith, you want to include prayer in your day, but when you hit the ground running in the morning, sometimes prayer is not the first thing on your mind.
If you can fit one prayer into your day, you want to make sure it is the best prayer.
Why daily prayer is important
Daily prayer is important because it connects us to God, helps to keep Him on our minds, and shows Him that He is important to us. Relationships do not thrive or even grow unless we spend time on them.
Spending time with God in prayer is how we can better connect with Him.
The most important daily prayer
The most important prayer we can pray each day is a Morning Offering.
When we pray a Morning Offering, we dedicate our day to God. We offer to Him as a gift all of our thoughts, words, and actions of the day. When we do this, our entire day becomes a prayer.
Here is one version of a Morning Offering:
Oh my God,
I offer You every thought and word and act of today.
Please bless me, my God, and make me good today.
You can pray this short Morning Offering or pray each morning to God in your own words, offering your day to Him and asking Him to be with you each moment of the day.
The benefits of a Morning Offering prayer
It is amazing that our whole day can be a prayer! Our thoughts, words, and actions can be dedicated to God each day.
When we offer our day to God, we are giving it to Him as a gift. We are also inviting Him into our day to share it with us.
Offering our day to God helps us to think about Him more during the day and even make different choices in our day than we might otherwise make.
For example, we might bite our tongue when we are tempted to raise our voice at our child, knowing that we are giving our words to God today. We don’t want the words we give to God to be yelling words!
Dedicating our day to God shows him our love for Him and can help us to focus even more on Him each day.
