The Fatima Morning Offering directs the one praying to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Through it, the one praying offers the upcoming day's prayers, works, joys and suffering for the love of God and to bring about both conversion and reparation. The prayer's name references Fatima, where some Catholics believe that the Blessed Mary Virgin appeared to shepherd children.

The Morning Prayer From the Roman Breviary comes from the prayer book priests use to pray official prayers of the Catholic Church. This morning prayer asks for God's protection for the day, especially against sin and spiritual dangers.

The Morning Offering both acknowledges belief in God and offers the day's joys and trials to Him. The Morning Offering to the Sacred Heart engages people in uniting themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the masses said in churches throughout the world. The Arising from Sleep prayer uses images of light and dark with a spiritual application.
