Bible verses about "morning prayer" | ISV

Psalms 5:1-12

1 To the Director: For flutes. A Davidic Psalm. LORD, listen to my words, consider my groaning. 2 Pay attention to my cry for help, my king and my God, for unto you will I pray. 3 LORD, in the morning you will hear my voice; in the morning I will pray to you, and I will watch for your answer. 4 Indeed, you aren't a God who delights in wickedness; evil will never dwell with you. 5 Boastful ones will not stand before you; you hate all those who practice wickedness. 6 You will destroy those who speak lies. The LORD abhors the person of bloodshed and deceit. 7 But I, because of the abundance of your gracious love, may come into your house. In awe of you, I will worship in your holy temple. 8 LORD, lead me in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your path straight before me. 9 But as for the wicked, they do not speak truth at all. Inside them there is only wickedness. Their throat is an open grave, on their tongue is deceitful flattery. 10 Declare them guilty, God! Let them fall by their own schemes. Drive them away because of their many transgressions, for they have rebelled against you. 11 Let all those who take refuge in you rejoice! Let them shout for joy forever, and may you protect them. Let those who love your name exult in you. 12 Indeed, you will bless the righteous one, LORD, like a large shield, you will surround him with favor.

Psalms 5:7

7 But I, because of the abundance of your gracious love, may come into your house. In awe of you, I will worship in your holy temple.

Job 1:1-22

1 There once was a man in the land of Uz named Job. The man was blameless as well as upright. He feared God and kept away from evil. 2 Seven sons and three daughters had been born to him. 3 His livestock included 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 teams of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and many servants. Indeed, the man's stature greatly exceeded that of many people who lived in the East. 4 His sons used to travel to each other's houses in turn on a regular schedule and hold feasts, inviting their three sisters to celebrate with them. 5 When their time of feasting had concluded, Job would rise early in the morning to send for them and consecrate them to God. He would offer a burnt offering for each one, because Job thought, "Perhaps my children sinned by cursing God in their hearts." Job did this time and again. 6 One day, divine beings presented themselves to the LORD, and Satan accompanied them. 7 The LORD asked Satan, "Where have you come from?" In response, Satan answered the LORD, "From wandering all over the earth and walking back and forth throughout it." 8 Then the LORD asked Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one like him on earth. The man is blameless as well as upright. He fears God and keeps away from evil." 9 But in response, Satan asked the LORD, "Does Job fear God for nothing? 10 Haven't you surrounded him with a fence on all sides, around his house, and around all that he owns? You have blessed everything he puts his hands on and you have increased his livestock in the land. 11 However, stretch out your hand and strike everything he owns, and he will curse you to your face." 12 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Very well then, everything he owns is under your control, only you may not extend your hand against him." So Satan left the LORD's presence. 13 Some time later, when his children were celebrating in their oldest brother's house, 14 a messenger approached Job and said, "The oxen were plowing and the female donkeys were grazing nearby 15 when the Sabeans attacked, captured the servants, and killed them with swords. I alone escaped to tell you!" 16 While this messenger was still speaking, another came and announced, "A lightning storm struck and incinerated the flock and the servants while they were eating. I alone escaped to tell you!" 17 While this messenger was still speaking, another came and announced, "The Chaldeans formed three companies, raided the camels, captured the servants, and killed them with swords. Only I alone escaped to tell you." 18 While this messenger was still speaking, another came and announced, "Your children were celebrating in their oldest brother's house 19 when a strong wind came straight out of the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on the young people, and they died. I alone escaped to tell you!" 20 Then Job stood up, tore his robe, shaved his head, fell to the ground, bowed very low, 21 and exclaimed: "I left my mother's womb naked, and I will return to God naked. The LORD has given, and the LORD has taken. May the name of the LORD be blessed." 22 Job neither sinned nor charged God with wrongdoing in all of this.

Psalms 51:1-19

1 To the Director: A Davidic Psalm. When the prophet Nathan came to him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.. Have mercy, God, according to your gracious love, according to your unlimited compassion, erase my transgressions. 2 Wash me from my iniquity, cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I acknowledge my transgression; my sin remains continually before me. 4 Against you, you only, have I sinned, and done what was evil in your sight. As a result, you are just in your pronouncement and clear in your judgment. 5 Indeed, in iniquity I was brought forth; in sin my mother conceived me. 6 Indeed, you are pleased with truth in the inner person, and you will teach me wisdom in my innermost parts. 7 Purge me with hyssop, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. 8 Let me know joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice. 9 Hide your countenance from my sins and erase the record of my iniquities. 10 God, create a pure heart in me, and renew a right attitude within me. 11 Do not cast me from your presence; do not take your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and let a willing attitude control me. 13 Then I will teach transgressors about your ways, and sinners will turn to you. 14 Deliver me from the guilt of shedding blood, God, God of my salvation. Then my tongue will sing about your righteousness. 15 Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare your praise. 16 Indeed, you do not delight in sacrifices, or I would give them, nor do you desire burnt offerings. 17 True sacrifice to God is a broken spirit. A broken and chastened heart, God, you will not despise. 18 Show favor to Zion in your good pleasure; and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then you will be pleased with right sacrifices, with burnt offerings, and with whole burnt offerings. Then they will offer bulls on your altar.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 When the earth was unformed and desolate, with the surface of the ocean depths shrouded in darkness, and while the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters, 3 God said, "Let there be light!" So there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness, 5 calling the light "day," and the darkness "night." The twilight and dawn were day one. 6 Then God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters, separating water from water!" 7 So God made the expanse, separating the water beneath the expanse from the water above it. And so it was. 8 God called the expanse "sky." The twilight and the dawn were the second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water beneath the sky come together into one area, and let dry ground appear!" And so it was. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and he called the water that had come together "oceans." And God saw how good it was. 11 Then God said, "Let vegetation sprout all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed!" And so it was: 12 Vegetation sprouted all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed. And God saw that it was good. 13 The twilight and the dawn were the third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish day from night, to act as signs for seasons, days, and years, 15 to serve as lights in the expanse of the sky, and to shine on the earth!" And so it was. 16 God fashioned two great lights {— } the larger light to illumine the day and the smaller light to illumine the night {— } as well as the stars. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the sky to shine on the earth, 18 to illumine both day and night, and to distinguish light from darkness. And God saw how good it was. 19 The twilight and the dawn were the fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the oceans swarm with myriads of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth throughout the sky!" 21 So God created every kind of magnificent sea creature, every kind of living sea crawler with which the waters swarmed, and every kind of flying bird. And God saw how good it was. 22 God blessed them by saying, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the oceans. Let the birds multiply throughout the earth!" 23 The twilight and the dawn were the fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth each kind of living creature, each kind of livestock and crawling thing, and each kind of wild animal!" And so it was. 25 God made each kind of wild animal, along with every kind of livestock and crawling thing. And God saw how good it was. 26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us. Let them be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, the livestock, everything that crawls on the earth, and over the earth itself!" 27 So God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created him; he created them male and female. 28 God blessed these humans by saying to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and be master over it! Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, and every living thing that crawls on the earth!" 29 God also told them, "Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant that grows throughout the earth, along with every tree that grows seed-bearing fruit. They shall produce your food. 30 I have given all green plants as food for every wild animal of the earth, every bird that flies, and to every living thing that crawls on the earth." And so it was. 31 Now God saw all that he had made, and, indeed, it was very good! The twilight and the dawn were the sixth day.

Psalms 63:1-11

1 A Davidic Psalm, while he was in the Judean wilderness.. God, you are my God! I will fervently seek you. My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you in a dry, weary, and parched land. 2 So I have looked for you in the sanctuary, to behold your power and glory. 3 Because your gracious love is better than life itself, my lips shall praise you. 4 So I will bless you as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in your name. 5 Just as I am satisfied with the choicest of foods, so my lips will praise you joyfully. 6 When I think of you in bed, I will meditate on you in the night watches. 7 For you have been my strength, and in the shadow of your wings I will shout for joy. 8 My soul clings to you, even as your right hand supports me. 9 But as for those seek to destroy me, they will go down to the depths of the earth; 10 May they be given over to the power of the sword; may they become carrion for jackals. 11 But as for the king, he will rejoice in God. Indeed, everyone who swears by God will exult, because the mouths of liars will be silenced.
