Engaging in a daily prayer doesn’t take much: you just have to be open to having a relationship with God and know how to pray.
Praying can help you clear up your mind before your day starts, make you feel ready to face your struggles, and bring you a sense of peace.
Ultimately, there are so many benefits to making your prayer part of your daily routine. Continue to read to find out more.
Prayer Helps You Make Better Decisions
How often do you make decisions that later on you regret? How different would it be if you:
- Reacted calmly instead of yelling?
- Decided to be supportive and listened to a friend instead of departing in a hurry to your next appointment?
- Avoided old habits and made healthier choices?
Praying about each decision can help you feel wiser and make better choices. You just have to practice spirituality and ask God for guidance and help.
Sets the Tone for Your Day
Sometimes, life can be a bit overwhelming. There are bills to pay, errands to run, and chores to do. At times, it can feel like there’s an endless to-do list.
Rather than waking up and feeling stressed out by all the things you need to get sorted, practice faith and pray.
When you make your prayer your priority, you can set your intention for the day and strengthen your faith. You certainly will feel calmer and better ready to face whatever comes your way.
Gives You Hope
Sometimes we don’t remember how powerful prayer can be. It doesn’t matter what you’re going through: when you speak to God, you can feel a bit of hope.
In God, you can fully trust and share what’s concerning you. You can be sure he is hearing you and reducing your burden.
Keep in mind that prayer should always be the first response, never a last resort.
Brings You Closer to God
If you’re seeking a closer relationship with God, prayer is the way to go. When you talk to God every day, you strengthen your faith and develop a deeper connection. It can be incredibly fulfilling.
So, ensure you open up and talk honestly about your difficulties, what you’re grateful for, ask for forgiveness and celebrate the blessing that is having God in your life.

Allows You to Express Gratitude
Praying every day allows you to express gratitude for the things the Lord provides and does on your behalf.
Feeling thankful no matter what situation you’re going through helps strengthen your trust in God and be humble. Sure, people tend to express gratitude when something positive happens, but we should learn to value both the bad and the good.
Think about it: thanking God during difficult times can help you appreciate the good times more.
As a bonus, practicing gratitude through prayer can help improve your mental health, immune system, increase your optimism and even improve your relationships.
Daily Prayer: Worth It?
People find time for everything: to scroll through Instagram, to check out clothes they might order online, to watch the funny cat video a friend sends. Surely, you can find time to pray.
If you’re running out of prayer ideas, don’t worry. Use the ACTS acronym (adoration, confession, thanksgiving, supplication) and bring variety to your talks with God.
Ultimately, your daily prayers will help you strengthen your relationship with God, have a more positive attitude to whatever challenge you’re facing in life, and make you feel more grateful. Make it a priority.
