A Prayer for Guidance

Updated: Apr 10

As I turn another year older, I was asked by my family what do I want for my birthday. That is always a tough question. I had a friend send me a prayer for guidance. I wish I had come up with this on my own, but I can’t take credit for this prayer.

Holy Spirit,

And that’s why, right now, I am asking You to give me Your divine wisdom and guidance. I don’t always know what to pray for. My soul is weary and I am tired. I often worry about making the right decision—but I want to live a life that honors You.

Even though I may feel like I can’t move forward or see what’s ahead—You see me. And You know me. So please guide me. Show me the paths that lead to abundant life and convict me when I am tempted to stray from You.

So, hold me close, Lord, and teach me to walk in a manner worthy of the calling You have given me. Direct my steps as You guard my life because I want to glorify You.

In Jesus’ name,


Psalm 139:23 – 24

23 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
