A Prayer for Guidance

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a humble heart, seeking Your guidance and direction for my life. I acknowledge that I am not always sure of the path that I should take, and I pray that You would reveal Your will to me.

I ask that You would give me the wisdom to understand Your Word and the courage to follow Your commands. I pray that You would protect me from the deceits of the enemy and guard my heart and mind from his attacks.

I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, knowing that You always lead me in the path of righteousness for Your name’s sake. I ask for Your guidance in every decision I make, and for Your provision in every need. May Your will be done in my life, and may Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

I love You and give You all the glory, through Jesus Christ my Lord, Amen.
