45 Daily Prayers to Live Yielded to God

Use these concise daily prayers to help you live yielded to God in every area of life. Add the general ones to your morning prayers or pick a specific topic to pray.


One way you can stay close to God is by praying daily.  

Jesus says He is the vine and we are the branches. The branch grows from the vine and eventually the branch grows leaves, eventually producing fruit.

When you live yielded to God through daily prayer, you will thrive in Christ.

While surrender might be the first thing you think of when I say live yielded to God, but it doesn’t mean that it’s always a negative connotation. 

For example, if I have a problem, I can try to fix it with my own wisdom, or I can go to God for His wisdom. He’s promised wisdom if we only ask (James 1:5), so that’s yielding to His wisdom instead of mine. 

Another example is when I’m having a rough day. I could skip going to Him for strength and go straight to my chocolate stash. But I’ve found that it’s always worth it to yield my humanness to Him and gain His support instead. 

This is the same mindset I take with all these daily prayers.
