Prayer for Guidance

Father, just tell us it's going to be okay! Oh how many times do we cry out asking You to show us the way, give us the map, just tell us what You want us to do! But, You do! 

You have given us the Bible as our instruction manual, and the Holy Spirit as our guide. Oh Lord as we struggle help us to stop consulting everyone else in our lives for advice, but rather read Your word, and follow Your lead.. Let us not become distracted or get of course by others. 

For that thing we need help with today Lord, help us to find the answer in Your word, and not ignore the Holy Spirit's direction. Show us the way!

"For that is what God is like. He our God forever and ever, and He will guide us until we die." -Psalm 48:14

-In Jesus' name, Amen.

Prayer in Uncertainty

Lord, we hand over to You the situation that is not going the way we want, and we ask that You make it right, and make us okay with the outcome. 

Oh Father when life feels rocky, thank you for being the ROCK we can depend on.  For "Your plans stand firm forever, and Your intentions can never be shaken." (Psalm 33:11).  

"Let your unfailing love surround us, Lord, for our hope is in you alone."  (Psalm 33:22)  

Not our own plans.  -In Jesus' name, Amen.
