I will have prayers for guidance
I will have prayers for guidance because there is no man who is of so little faith that, in a moment of great disaster, or heartbreak, or misery beyond his comprehension has not called out to his God?
My life need not be filled with religion in order to recognise this greatest mystery of nature – all creatures that walk the earth possess the instinct to cry out for help.
And aren’t these cries also a form of prayer? What superior power would not have the ability to answer our cries, having first given us as well as every creature in nature, be it a mule or a lamb or a bird the instinct to cry out for help?
Henceforth, I will pray for guidance. But my cries for help will only be cries for guidance. I won’t ever pray for material things. I have no need to call to a servant to bring me food.
I will never pray for gold, love, good health, petty victories, fame, success, or happiness.
Instead I will pray for the guidance that I may be shown the way to acquire these things and my prayers will always be answered.
The prayers for guidance I seek may come or it may not come. But are not both of these an answer? If a child asks his father for a treat and it is not forthcoming, has not the father answered? I will pray for guidance and I will pray as a salesman in this manner:
“Oh, Creator of all things help me. For this day I go out into the world naked and alone and, without your hand to guide me, I will wander far from the path which leads to success and happiness”.
I will have prayers for guidance: The Humble Salesman
You have taught the Lion and the Eagle how to hunt and prosper with teeth and claw. Teach me how to hunt with words and prosper with love, so that I may be a Lion among men and an Eagle in the market place. Help me to remain humble through obstacles and failures, yet hide not from mine eyes the prize that will come with victory.
Assign me tasks at which others have failed. Yet guide me to pluck the seeds of success from their failures.
Confront me with fears that will temper my spirit. Yet endow me with courage to laugh at my misgivings.Spare me sufficient days to reach my goals, yet help me to live this day as though it be my last.
Guide me in my words so that they may bear fruit, yet silence me from gossip that none may be maligned.
Discipline me in the habit of trying and trying again. Yet show me the way to make use of the law of averages.
Favour me with alertness to recognise opportunity when I see it, yet endow me with patience to concentrate my strength.
Bathe me in good habits that the bad ones may drown, yet grant me compassion for weaknesses in others.
Suffer me to know that all things shall pass, yet help me to count the blessings of today.
Expose me to hate, so it may not be a stranger, yet fill my cup with love to turn strangers into friends.
But all these things, be only if Thou will it to be so. I am as small and lonely as a grape clutching the vine. Yet Thou hast made me different from all others. Readily there must be a special place for me.
Guide me. Help me. Show me the way. Let me become all, You planned for me to become, when my seed was planted and selected by You to sprout in the vineyard of the world. Help this humble salesman. Guide me, oh God.” I will have prayers for guidance.These ten scrolls may have been edited and modified from their original version.

I wish you all the best in your life and with your family! May you live with the prayers for guidance.

5 Powerful Prayers For Guidance When Life Feels Confusing
I’m so grateful that God invites me to lift prayers of guidance to him.
Because here’s the deal…
Life can be really, really confusing sometimes. A lot of the time actually.
So many situations arise where we need the Lord’s guidance. Should I take this job? Should I marry this person? Should I move to this place? Should I attend this church?
The list goes on and on.
Life. Is. Challenging.
Am I right?
The good news is that God has promised to guide us and to answer our prayers for guidance. In Psalm 32:8, the Lord says:
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”
The challenge is that we don’t always know what to pray when it comes to prayers of guidance. And so we find ourselves only able to say things , “Lord, please help me know what to do.”
And while there’s nothing wrong with that, I also believe that God has more for us. To help both you and I out, here are 5 prayers of guidance to pray when life feels confusing and complicated.
1. A Prayer For Guidance and Trust
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake (Psalm 23:1-3).
Lord, I may not know what to do, but I trust that you have a good, sweet, sovereign plan for my life. Even though I may not know the way to go, you do, and I trust you to lead me every step of the way.
Your word says that you are my shepherd and that I am your sheep. I trust you to lead me beside still waters. I trust you to bring me to green pastures. You won’t leave me or forsake me. You’ll never abandon me. You’ll never stop doing good to me.
I refuse to trust in my own wisdom and my own discernment. Instead, I place all my trust and hope in you. I place all my faith in you. I place all my confidence in you. You are my rock. My hope. My strong tower.
I fully trust that you will guide me to the good place you have for me.
2. A Prayer For Guidance and Wisdom
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him (James 1:5)
Lord, now more than ever, I need your wisdom. I don’t know the best way to go, nor can I see the best path to choose. There are so many options in front of me. And so I ask for your divine wisdom. I ask that you would please give me the clarity of thought and wisdom that only you can provide.
I thank you that you have promised to give me wisdom and to guide me. You have promised that you will direct my steps. You have promised that nothing can ever separate me from you, and that you will always lead me in paths of righteousness for your name’s sake.
So now I pray that you would please give me wisdom and guidance. I pray that you would make the way clear before me. That you would give me wisdom to carefully weigh out all the circumstances and to decide on what the right one is. I thank you that you will do this. I absolutely trust you to.
3. A Prayer For Guidance and Submission
Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act (Psalm 37:5).
Father, as I consider the future and my need for guidance, I submit myself completely to you. I may have plans, but ultimately you are the one who establishes those plans. I may envision doing certain things, but you are the only one who can bring those things to pass.
And so I pray that you would help me to have a spirit of submission as I seek your guidance. Help me to humbly submit all my ways to you. I know that, ultimately, your ways are best and true and good. You will lead me in what is best, and so I joyfully submit myself to you.
Just as a child submits to his loving father, so I submit to you, my loving Father. I know that all the plans you have for me are for my good and your glory. And so I joyfully place my plans before you, trusting that you will bring to pass that which is good and gently turn me aside from that which is not.
4. A Prayer For Guidance and Peace
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you (Isaiah 26:3).
Father, I confess that I am tempted to be afraid when life feels uncertain. When life feels confusing, I’m tempted to try to figure out everything myself, and when I do that, I become afraid. Because the reality is that I can’t figure the future out. Only you know the future. Only you know all things.
I ask that you would give me divine peace as I seek your guidance. You promise the peace that passes understanding. You promise to keep him in perfect peace whose mind is fixed on you. With that in mind, I am fixing my mind on you. I call to mind your faithfulness and goodness and trustworthiness.
I am trusting you. I am placing all my hope in you. When I do that, I find your peace. Please help me to keep my mind stayed on you, always trusting in who you are and your utter faithfulness. I can’t manufacture divine peace. Only you can give it to me. Thank you that you will give me your peace.
5. A Prayer For Guidance and Strength
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go (Joshua 1:9)
Father, as I confront an uncertain future, I need your strength. Give me the strength to keep going forward, even when I don’t know the outcome. Give me the strength to trust you, even when I can’t figure out how everything will pan out. Give me the strength to not be afraid.
In and of myself, I am weak. I am frail. I don’t have enough strength. I need you to sustain me through the trial of uncertainty that I’m facing. I need you to give me divine strength because I feel very weak.
I thank you that when I am weak, you are strong. That when I’m fragile, you are invincible. That you won’t break a bruised reed or snuff out a smoking wick. Because that’s what I often feel when I’m facing an uncertain future. I’m counting on you to give me supernatural strength to keep pressing into you and pressing forward in my circumstances.
God Will Guide Us
The good news is that we have a Good Shepherd who will always lead us to green pastures and still waters. Yes, there will be times when we will walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. There will be times when the way ahead is shrouded in darkness and not clear.
But no matter the situation, we can be confident that God is guiding us. And so we can confidently lift up these prayers for guidance, knowing that God will indeed answer them.

Heavenly Father, my hope is in You alone as I face many storms of life that constantly seem to be battering at my door, with increasing intensity.
Lord, they seem billowing waves beating against everything that has spelt security in my life up till now and causing me to realise that without You I would be overcome in a moment of time.
Help me Lord to look to You and maintain that hope that I have in You, knowing that without You I am nothing, but with You at the helm of my life I have all I need to stand firm in the faith.
Lord thank You that by Your grace I have been made a new creation in Christ and thank You for the promise of hope that is set before me in Him.
Thank You that my hope was founded on You the moment I first believed – but forgive me Lord… for over the years I know I have drifted far away from You as I tried, in my own strength, to be the captain my own life and negotiate through its little surges and swells by my own skill and cunning.
Lord I ask Your forgiveness for being so careless with my relationship with You, for You alone deserve my praise and thanksgiving for You alone are the source of my life and the sphere of my hope – You are the faithful Shepherd of the sheep and the Rock upon Whom my hope is founded.
Lord I pray that as the intensity of life’s storms increase all around me, that I may cling ever closer to You, and rest all my hope upon You, for You alone are worthy, in Jesus name I pray,
Effective prayer for new hope
Thank You Father that my eternal future is built upon Christ Jesus my Lord and I pray that I may hold unswervingly to the hope I have in Him, knowing that He Who died on the cross to pay the price for my sins, and drew me with His cords of everlasting love into His family, is faithful to complete the good work that He started in my life for His word stands fast for ever and ever.
May I never forget on Whom my hope is founded, knowing that He became sin for me so that I might become the righteousness of God in Him.
May I stand firm on the confession of my faith and develop a living hope, that stands fast in the day of trouble — knowing that in Him I can face all that this life throws at me.My hope is indeed built on nothing less than the Lord Jesus Christ and His righteousness – thank You for the living hope I have in Him,
Thank You Father that our hope, which is rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus is not for this world only, but has a most glorious and eternal perspective, for as Paul told the Corinthian believers that if we were only to hope in this life, we would be pitied more that anyone else, but praise be to God, that our hope is in Christ, Who has been raised from the dead.
