Prayer for guidance in decision making


I confess my fears and hopes as I make this decision. It is written that perfect love casts out all fear. So I come to you now and soak in your love. As I lay down my thoughts and surrender my will to you, may clarity, wisdom and faith arise in my heart. Lord, would you stir up my hopes, may I dream again. Come speak into my heart your reassuring promises and fresh words of life. Thank you Lord that you are the rock on which I build my life. So no matter what the outcome is of my decision, I stand secure in your truth. Come direct my path and illuminate my mind as I wait before you now.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.


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.

bible quotes on guidance

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you."

(Psalm 32:8, NIV)

"But if any of you lack wisdom, you should pray to God, who will give it to you; because God gives generously and graciously to all. But when you pray, you must believe and not doubt at all. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is driven and blown about by the wind."

(James 1:5-6, GNT)

"Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you."

(Matthew 7:7, NLT)
