Prayer for Guidance

Father God, I come before to ask for your wisdom and guidance in my life.

The cry of my heart is for you to make your will for my life clear and to lead me in your truth and to teach me to hear your voice no matter what else is going on (Psalm 24:4-5). I know you gave us your word so we would know where to go and if I ask for wisdom you will give it to me immediately and without limit (James 1:5-6, Psalm 119:105).

So, Lord, this is my prayer, that you would teach me the way I should go and give me the grace to use this guidance so I never stray far from you (Psalm 32:8-9).

Thank you for your guidance and highlighting the best direction for me.

In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray and declare these things.
