Prayers – For God’s Guidance

Prayer for God’s Guidance

Prayer For God's Guidance - morning porch

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.

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
