Prayer for Guidance

“Fill your mind with the thought that God is there. And once your mind is truly filled with that thought, when you experience difficulties it will be as easy as breathing for you to remember, “My heavenly Father knows all about this!” –Oswald Chambers

Prayer for Guidance

By Roy Lessin

Heavenly Father, You have promised to guide me, instruct me, and direct my steps. I need to hear Your voice, know Your will, sense Your guidance. I acknowledge You as the One who is wholly and uniquely able and qualified to lead and direct my life. I thank You that You have not asked me to try and figure everything out, to trust in my own reasoning, or to rely upon my understanding of what is best for me.

Father, I receive Your wisdom, knowing that every decision You make is the right decision and the one that is always the best that can be made. You do all things well! I trust in Your timing to bring into my life the right things at the right time, and to keep from me anything I am not ready to receive, no matter how good it may appear.

I believe that as You guide me I will find strength in Your grace, power in Your Spirit, assurance in Your Word, contentment in Your provision, fulfillment in Your purpose. I ask that You will open every door that needs to be opened and close every door that needs to be closed. Lead me and bring me into Your desired place. I want to walk each day with Your peace in my heart. Thank You, Father, that no matter what, I can put my complete trust in You.

Isaiah 61: 1-3

Good News for the Oppressed

 1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me,
      for the Lord has anointed me
      to bring good news to the poor.
   He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
      and to proclaim that captives will be released
      and prisoners will be freed.[a]
 2 He has sent me to tell those who mourn
      that the time of the Lord’s favor has come,[b]
      and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.
 3 To all who mourn in Israel,[c]
      he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
   a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
      festive praise instead of despair. (“a garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness”)
   In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
      that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
Thanks for sharing those thoughts and Scriptural promises, friends.  They were a blessing to me. 
 What a relief to know just WHO is in control and that we can rest in Him, snuggle up in His love, and trust.
Yesterday was a very hard day for me.  I felt so spiritually, emotionally, and physically “spent”.  How I need Him, desperately need Him! 
In His love and mine too,

  2. Dear Paula,

    I am praying for you and praising the Lord for loving us as much as He does. We are praising Him for His protection, my three youngest & I were in an accident on Friday, by His grace no one was hospitalized, and though we will be healing over the next few weeks, we are so grateful for His mercy. We love you and want you to be encouraged — He guides every step according to His purpose!
    Love, Joy
