Prayer for clarity of mind

Dear God,

Be in my thoughts like a torch shining in the dark.
Be in my heart like a drumbeat keeping time.
Be in my body like an intricate dance.
Be in my soul like a cascading waterfall.
Be in my speech like a poet spins lyrics.
Be in my spirit like a strong wind of change.
Sweep up all that I am, bring light to my being
And take me as an instrument for you.

Prayer for wisdom and direction

O Lord,
You are my sat nav,
A voice to guide my way.
Such help on every journey,
Within my heart you reign.

You are my compass,
You lead me where to go.
Even when the path is dim,
Your truth lights all I know.

You are my lighthouse.
In the high seas and storms,
I do not fear the rocks of life,
Your love light keeps me warm.
