A Prayer For Strength and Guidance
Strength is so important. Strength to carry on, make decisions, persevere, etc. But sometimes strength isn’t enough. Life can throw you curveballs in such a way that you need strength and guidance. Guidance to channel your energy in the right direction. Guidance so that your efforts aren’t wasted. Guidance to make progress on things that actually matter.
You wouldn’t drive a car with no steering wheel, right? You also wouldn’t wouldn’t ride in a car knowing the brakes didn’t work. Me either.
That being said, I’ve found myself petitioning God for strength (as I often do) and still feeling “lost.” Lost – not as in the Christian sense, but lost as in “I have no idea what to do next.”
Have you been there? I have. Maybe that’s why you ended up here. If so, here’s a prayer for you to pray.
Prayer for Strength and Guidance
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for the blessings you’ve given me. I am excited to do your will. Please give me the guidance necessary to choose the correct path ahead of me. Please allow me not to be confused by the options, and give me clarity to see what decisions you want me to make.
I trust in You to give me the words to say and the strength to make the correct decisions. I pray that you give me the strength and guidance necessary to do your will.
To You be the glory, Amen.
A prayer for strength and guidance cannot be where it ends. After you’ve prayed this prayer you must make a conscious effort to keep your eyes open for signs as to what to do. Your decisions will become easier, but you won’t see a straight and narrow path. The Bible teaches that it won’t be easy, and it won’t always be obvious, but if you make diligent effort, He will guide you.
Blessings be upon you.
