Prayer For God's Guidance And Direction

O Lord, Enlighten our hearts by your holy radiance, Jesus Christ, that we may serve you without fear in holiness and righteousness all the days of our life. In him may we survive the storms of this world,
and by his guidance reach the country of eternal brightness; through your mercy, O blessed Lord, you live and govern all things, now and forever. Amen.

Lord, I pray you would move the Spirit more boldly in my life. I know that any sin can grieve and diminish the voice of the Spirit, and I pray against the temptation to sin. Help me crave your presence more than I crave sin. Help me grow in the fruit of the Spirit and so walk closer with Yourself. I pray for guidance from your Spirit- let your will and promises always be a meditation of my heart. In Jesus' Name, Amen

Psalm 23 is a great psalm for praying for God's leading and direction in our liveshe truly is our Good Shepherd! Use this Scripture when you need wisdom, direction, and guidance in every area of your life.

Take the Scripture and personalize it. Write it down, and then insert your own personal cares and concerns. Remember that since God is your Shepherd, he will guide you.

Follow his voice, and abide in him through his Word.

Here is one way that you can use Psalm 23 as a personal prayer for guidance.

The Lord is my Shepherd
Lord, we thank you that you are my Lord and shepherd. Because of your grace, I lack nothing.

You Lead me Beside Quiet Waters
I ask that you refresh, revive, and restore my soul as you lead me along paths of righteousness. This is for your name's sakethat your name may be uplifted, honored and glorified.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Even during the times when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not fear. You, the Good Shepherd, are with me. You are the Lamb of God, and you conquered death and the grave once and for all!

Your rod and staff comfort me
Your rod and staff give me comfort. You lavishly provide me with a feast of abundance in the presence of my enemies.

You anoint my head with the oil of joy
I am anointed with the oil of joyand my cup overflows! As long as I live, your mercy and goodness will follow me. I will dwell, reside, and abide in your presence forever and ever.

To God be the glory! Amen.

For all whose journey
has only just begun,
who tread carefully
and heavy laden
along unfamiliar paths,
seeking guidance
from fellow travellers,
fearful of losing their way,
speed their journey, Lord,
keep them from harm,
and bring them safely
into their promised land,
your Kingdom where,
at last unburdened,
they might find their rest in you.

Guide us, gracious Lord,
as we make our way
through this week,
your feet revealing
safe paths to follow,
your calming voice
giving confidence
to continue, through
unfamiliar, challenging
and often beautiful places.

Heavenly Father, I come to You with a spirit of admiration, adoration and praise as I seek your guidance. I bow at the foot of Your throne to honor You because of who You are. My Lord, my God, I Love You. I worship You. And I give You the glory that is due to Your wonderful name.

Lord, You are my refuge and my fortress, my Strong-tower, My Deliverer. In You I live and have my being.

You are the all-consuming fire that burns within me and I thank You for Your continued blessings.

Romans 8:28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.

Psalms 105:4 Search for the Lord and for His strength. Seek His face always.

Gracious Heavenly Father, your word says that you will always guide me. You do not leave me wandering through life, but you are with me during every moment of every day. You will satisfy my needs when I feel frustrated and you will strengthen me when life makes me weary. Help me to follow your ways as you lead me into a life of fruitfulness and joy. May I be like the well-watered garden which thrives because the roots are firmly planted in your love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

O Lord my God, help me to trust you with my decisions and my future. Let me lean on you with all my heart instead of relying on my own imperfect understanding. Give me clear guidance in my life, Lord. As I submit myself to you, I know that you will direct my paths and I can have confidence that your direction is always the best way to go. Hear my prayer, Father. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
