Prayer for guidance & direction
Dear Gracious Father
By wisdom you founded the earth and by understanding you established the heavens. Your word also says “blessed is the man that finds wisdom and gets understanding” and also that you are the giver of wisdom knowledge and understanding. They are more precious than silver, gold and rubies.
Our righteousness is as filthy rags and our schemes are worthless without your knowledge and how to apply them wisely. Your word also says that without you we can do nothing.
Who can know and understand your ways? Who can gain your wisdom except by your Holy Spirit who instructs us about your ways and reminds us of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Father I pray that you would forgive us for making decisions without consulting you or seeking your counsel. I ask you to graciously deliver us from self motivated decisions and actions.
“Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou [art] the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”
I also pray that you would take control of every aspect of our lives and help us to direct our focus on that which concerns you. Help us to know and prioritise what you perceive as a priority and to do only what you instruct us to do, redeeming the time, for your coming is soon.
Father, help us in our weaknesses and come in all your might and power to make us a people ready for the coming of the Lord.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray Amen.
