Prayer For Indecision
Holy Lord, your word says obedience is better than sacrifice. Father, help me to walk in obedience as I make decisions about my life, family, and career. Let those decisions align with your word. Show me the path you have set for me and how to walk in it. Where I have been walking in disobedience, Father, forgive me. Let your Holy Spirit guide me in everything that I do so that I may not go against your word. Humble my heart so that I may be flexible. It is in Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Lord of heaven and earth, so many things await me once I take this step. But I cannot make this decision without you. You are the only one who knows how this decision will affect me. I come to you today asking you to help me make sound decisions. Lord, help me be a better judge in every situation that I face. Open my spiritual eyes so that I can see who and what I am dealing with in Jesus' name, I believe, and pray. Amen.
Loving Father, only you know my end from the beginning. Nothing I do or say catches you by surprise. You know what is in my heart, good or bad. Everyone around me is choosing to do things their way, and it is very tempting for me to do so too. But Father God, I want your will to be done in my life. If it is not your will for me to take this path, then Father, give me divine strength to accept and to follow your lead. May every decision I make be pleasing to you. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
Heavenly Father, remove anything in me that will cause me to make rash decisions. Give me the patience to handle big and small decisions in different areas of my life. Fill me with divine strength that I may always follow your leading. May I take the path you are showing me even if it seems long. Lord, slow me down when I rush and teach me how to make decisions calmly. In Jesus' name, I pray and believe. Amen.
Dear Lord, my heart is full of anxiety. I don't know how to go about this issue. The decision I make today is going to affect my family and friends. I am scared of failing and shaming my loved ones. But your word says that you have not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and sound mind. Let your word come alive in me. Let me be filled with love and power so that I can make bold decisions. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
Father God, your word says that if anyone lacks wisdom, they should ask, and you will give them generously. I am about to make a huge decision in my life, but I don't know how to go about it, Father God. I come to you today to ask you for wisdom. Lead me in the way that I should go that I may be able to bring glory to your holy name. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
Dear heavenly Father, you number our hairs and determine our days; you hang the stars and feed the sparrows; you open doors no one can shut and shut doors no one can open. Surely, we can trust you when the time comes for making big decisions, or for that
matter, any decisions. I'm in just such a season again, Father, and I know I'm not alone. We will trust you for generous wisdom, straight paths and peaceful hearts, all for your glory.
How we praise you for being the decision-making-God. It's not our decisions, but yours that make all the difference. We will plan, but we trust you to order our steps. We will pray, but ask you to fix our prayers en route to heaven. We will seek counsel, but count on you to overrule faulty or incomplete input from our most trusted friends and mentors. We will search the Scriptures, but not looking for proof texts but for you, Father. All we want and need is you.
Free us from the paralysis of analysiswanting make the right decision, more than we want to be righteous people; wanting to be known as wise people, more than we want to know you. Free us from the idolatry of assuming there's only one perfect choice in any given situation. Free us from making decisions primary for our comfort and other's approval, or fear their disapproval. Free us to know that good choices don't always lead to the easiest outcomes, especially at first. Free us from second and twenty-second guessing our decisions.
Father, no matter if it's wisdom about buying or selling, vocation or vacation, this place or that place, this person or that person, we know that in ALL things, your will is our sanctificationour becoming more and more like Jesus. Give us this passion; make it our delight.
So, Father, make us more and more like Jesus, even as we trust you for the opening and closing of doors that are in front of us. All for your gloryin our eating and drinking; and in our whatever's, whenever's and wherever's. So very Amen we pray, in the name of our reigning King, Jesus.
You have told me You will show me the path I should follow in my life. You have shown me that if I believe and follow Your ways faithfully I will never be led to ruin. Remind me that I can lean on You for direction. Remind me that I can know that Your voice reassures, and brings peace. Allow me to believe in that calm clear voice inside myself, and to recall that since I lean on You, You will make my paths straight. I need not fear anything on this earth, because You are Lord of all and You have promised me as much. And so, Lord, please help me keep perspective, when choices loom large. Help me to recall that no decision or choice is larger than Your promises.
