Prayer For Gods Will
Lord, at times I just wish that You would send me a letter or call me on the telephone and let me know with clarity what Your will is for my life, so that I may fulfil all the plans that You have purposed for me.
Help me to lay aside my own personal preferences and learn to say, "Thy will be done." Equip me I pray, to recognise Your gentle promptings and the wise counsel that is hidden in Your Word, and keep me from being swayed by my own fleshly inclinations.
Tenderise my heart so that I am able to discern the nudges and tugs from the Holy Spirit and give me wisdom to make godly choices as I patiently wait for Your designated time.
Lord, although it would be amazing to have a letter or call from You, I do recognise that we are to live this life by faith and not by sight or sound, visions or dreams, so help me to keep my focus on the Lord Jesus, knowing that the closer I draw to Him, the more I will forget myself and my own desires, and the more I will discover Who You are and What You desire of me. This I ask in Jesus' name,
O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder the song writer expressed what the Psalmist also expressed when he considered Thy great creation.
Help me, O God, to see and know and understand that You created all things and that I am a part of that which You created. Help me to know that I am safe with You but without You, I am in constant danger both in this world and the world to come.
Lead me today, beside the still waters. Give me a thirst for the Living Water that I may drink and be satisfied.
In Jesus' name,
O God, I have been in such a hurry to get, I don't know where. It seems everybody else is in a hurry to get somewhere and I hurry also but I tend to lose my sense of direction in my haste.
As the disciples came to Jesus and asked Him, Teach us how to pray, so I come, O Lord, asking to be taught how to pray and what to pray for.
Lord, calm my hurried heart and make me sensitive to Your voice. I do not ask that You speak audibly. It would frighten me if you did. I do humbly pray that You will tune my spirit to You so that I may be able to discern the voice of Your Spirit. Help me to stop in my hurried life and sit quietly at Your feet, becoming sensitive to Your voice.
In Jesus' name I pray,
Heavenly Lord, I so desire to do Your will and to find the plan You have for my life. I know Lord, that You have scheduled every day of my life and I do believe that the right path is already laid out for me, but I am not sure which door to push on or which path the follow.
I ask You to give me wisdom to discern what You would have me to do and I pray that the Holy Spirit would be my guide, to direct me where I ought to go. I truly want to be open to Your plans and purposes and I also want to wait for Your timing and not try to superimpose my own will over Your perfect will for me, but Lord, I do ask that I will soon find Your plan for my life.
Give me patience to wait for Your time, wisdom to know what to do and humility to seek only Your will and not mine. Lord, give me readiness to hear You still small voice above my own impulsive heart. Into Your hands I now commit my future and thank You Lord, for I know that You have promised to guide me every step of the way. In Jesus' name I pray,
Lord, I'm here today with open hands and an open heart, ready to depend on you to help me through the day and all it will bring my way. Help me be like Nehemiah, help me come to you for guidance, strength, provision and protection. As I face tough choices and hard situations, help me remember my belovedness, help me remember that I am Your child and Your representative to the world around me. Help me live today in a way that brings honor to Your holy name. In Jesus' Name, 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
Heavenly Father, thank You for Your guidance. Forgive me for getting ahead of Your plans, and help me know when to stop and listen for Your direction. Your ways are perfect, Lord. Thank You for offering gentle grace. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
God, you know me better than I know myself. You know my fears and my desires. You know how much I want this. You know how much I will be devastated if this doesn't happen. I know you love me. I know you have a plan for me. Please, Lord, don't let my desires blind me to your will. If this is not within your plan for me, throw up a Brick Wall. Give me an obstacle I cannot get past. Help me follow your will, Father. Give me peace about whatever is to come. If this falls through, I will know it is your hand.
Thank you for loving me,
