Prayer For Discernment In Making A Decision

Heavenly Father, you are my refuge and hiding place that is why I am here asking you to protect me against the lies of the enemy. Shield me from weapons that have forged against me to prevent me from making decisions that are within your will. Reveal to me the people that the enemy is using to lead me astray and help me to cut them off from my life. I cover my mind, body, and spirit with the blood of Jesus. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Gracious Father, I am dealing with a very complex situation right now. I need grace during this time so that I can do the right thing. Let your grace be upon me so that I may find favor with the right people. Father, do not let me be ashamed for those who oppose me are waiting for me to stumble and fall. Give me a clear vision of where to go and how to get there. Let your grace help me to rely on you fully for the glory of your holy name. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

O Lord, there are decisions I have made in the past that have left me hurt, broken, and insecure. Now I have to make another decision, but the past keeps flooding my heart, and it is making me second guess myself. Lord, take control of my mind. Help me to focus on your leading and not my past failures. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

I am about to make an important decision, Lord, and the day ahead of me is charged with uncertainty. Help me feel your presence especially today, Lord. To feel your strength supporting me and to be sure of your loving concern for what I decide today.

I have been your follower and your child for many years. Even when I was young I laid claim to your love and dedicated my life to doing what you wanted me to do. From that time until now, I have tried to shun the enticements of the world, the human ambitions
that beckon me so teasingly Instead I have pursued your dreams for me. And I have always tried to carry out your commands.

I have been faithful to the time of worship and the hour of prayer. I have celebrated your gifts of love and sung your many praises. My best friends have always been those who love and serve you.

And now, Lord, today I come to a fork in the road, I don't know which way to turn. So I offer this day to you, Lord and the decision I have to make. I pray that today will be lived in your love and that my decision will be in accord with what you want me to do.

So I raise my voice for a moment in thanksgiving, Lord. For you have promised to guide my falthering steps today.


Righteous God, I declare that Your Kingdom come, and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. I pray heavenly Father that when it comes to making decisions I am in line with Your will. Let every decision I make be approved by You in heaven first. I pray that You govern my steps and direct my paths at all times. Thank You for Your divine guidance and correction in my life, Amen.

Dear Lord, just as You told Samuel to not look at appearance or height of a man's stature, I pray that I too look not on outward appearances. God You do not see how man sees but You look at the heart. I pray that I too look at life on a deeper level and understand that there is more than what meets the eye. I pray that when making decisions I approach them with spiritual wisdom and sensitivity, Amen.

Lord God, I pray for a clear understanding and a peace that only you can provide. Remind me that my thoughts are not your thoughts and my ways are not your ways (Isaiah 55:8-9) when I am struggling to see clearly and make decisions and that peace is a gift only you supply. When I'm restless, anxious, and uneasy, strengthen me to move forward with eyes only fixed on you. Please keep the enemy from polluting my heart and confusing my mind as I draw nearer to your truths, Lord.

In Exodus 3:14, Your words, I Am That I Am calls out to me. You are the past, present, and future; and so, You have already seen the outcome of all of the decisions that I can make now. God, I just ask that You help me make the best one. I thank You for listening oh Lord.
