PRAYER FOR GUIDANCE
"Nevertheless I am continually with You; You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel, And afterward receive me to glory." (Psalms 73:23,24)
Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus,
Lord there are many things in the world that try to lead man, but I pray that I would be led by Your hand, and that You alone will guide me down the proper path. I know you speak to me in many different ways, so I also ask that when you speak; I will recognize that it is You. Whether it’s through a pastor, a friend, a stranger, or directly from Your Word, help me to hear and recognize Your voice, and do Your will.
There are many distractions that try to consume my time, but I desire to put You first before everything so that our relationship is above all things. Lord I recognize that I need you desperately, and ask that I would sense your presence on a daily bases as I remain to walk and live by Your Word.
Help me Lord to make right and proper decisions; decisions based upon Your Word. Help me to love those who I find hard to love, and forgive those I’ve struggled to forgive. Let me read the Bible with enthusiasm and joy, out of love for You and Your Word, not because it is routine or required.
Lord let me acknowledge You in all that I do in daily life, because Your Word says : "In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:6) I believe and trust in that word Lord, and know I can rely on You!
I thank you Lord for all you have given me, for even if I had every material possession stripped from me in this life, I know and am assured of one thing: That I will have eternal life, with You forever. I have declared by faith that I believe, and will continue to live my life by faith, so above all, thank You for sending Your Son to die for me.
In Jesus name I pray,
"For this is God, Our God forever and ever; He will be our guide Even to death." (Psalms 48:14)
