Prayers – For Guidance

Prayer for Guidance

Dear God,

I get up every morning now, and thank you for another day.
As I shower I always pray.
I think of You and there you are,
telling me what You want me to know.
Then I get ready with the day’s scripture reading;
You always have more to say.

Prayers - For Guidance - morning porch

I never leave the house, before I kneel down and pray.
I always ask the Holy Spirit to come to me.
I always ask You to forgive me for my failings.
I always turn over my day to you, Oh Lord.

So, tell me then, when did I go astray?
What have You told me that I didn’t listen to today?
What doors have you opened that I failed to pass through?
What directions are You trying to get me to follow?
Where have I failed You Lord?
Where have I strayed?
What more do You want me to do this day?

Please Oh Lord, tell me where I have failed You.
Bring me back home.
I am so very confused and feeling so alone.
What more do You want of me?
I give You my all.
If this is not good enough,
I don’t know what else to do.

I guess I could pray more.
I guess I could trust You more.
Are you telling me to wait, Lord?
Is this what You are saying?
I will wait for Your answer Lord.
I can’t hear You today, Oh Lord, but I know You are there.
I know You truly do care.
I just know it.
Some have tried to tell me I am a fool to wait on You.
They treat me like I am crazy when I say I talk to You.
They think I am weird because I plaster Your precious name all over the place.
I need all the reminders around me, because You see,
Sometimes I forget to pray.
Sometimes I forget You are there.
Sometimes I forget You care.
Sometimes I don’t believe Your word.
Oh I beg Your forgiveness for these times.
But Lord, as each day goes by and I look around,
I can see Your handy work … all over town.

Oh, Lord, I know You are there.
Oh Lord, I know You care.
Even though I can’t hear You, and I am not sure I am doing Your will,
I know You love me,
I just know You care.

Thank You, Jesus, for loving me this way.
Help me to wait, if I am to wait.
Help me to pray if I am to pray.
Help me to trust … oh on this one, ALL THE WAY.
Help me Jesus.
I see the storm coming.
I know You see it, too.
I am trying not to be afraid.
I am trying not to cry … but Oh Lord,
it is hard sometimes … my flesh is weak,
but I know You are strong Oh Lord.
I know You care.

I love You Jesus,
but I know You love me more.

Thank You Jesus … Thank You God.
Amen

A suggestion for you:

Online Retreats

The “virtual retreats” of Good News Ministries are online prayer and reflection experiences that you can enjoy wherever you are. All of them offer healing, rest and restoration in the gentle arms of Christ. Some are interactive. Some are prayer-poems. Some are multi-media. Some are in Virtual Reality (and you don't need headgear to see it). Take time alone with the Lord: [go]

Enjoy an Intimate Conversation with Jesus

Jesus the Good Shepherd

Speak to Me, My precious one!

Tell Me about those who are closest to you, the sorrows they cause you, and your fears for them. How would you like Me to help them? .... [go]
