Prayer for Guidance

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a humble heart, seeking Your guidance and direction for my life. I confess that I often try to navigate the path of life on my own, but I know that without You, I will inevitably stray from Your perfect will. I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, knowing that You are always with me and will never leave me or forsake me.

I ask that You would give me wisdom and discernment as I make decisions and face challenges. I pray that Your Holy Spirit would lead me in the paths of righteousness for Your Name’s sake. Help me to understand Your will for my life, and to have the courage to follow it, even when it is difficult.

I pray for Your protection and provision for my family and loved ones, and that I would be a shining example of Your love and grace to those around me. I pray that I will be a light in the darkness, a beacon of hope to those who are lost, and a reflection of Your love for the world.

I give You all the praise, honor, and glory, for You are worthy of all my worship. I thank You for Your loving-kindness and faithfulness, and for the many blessings You have bestowed upon me.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
