A Prayer in Times of Decision-Making

A Prayer in Times of Decision-Making

I wrote this prayer while I was away on holiday, reflecting on the blessings of God, through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When time, and the pressures of life, seem to get in the way of leading a life of peace, calm and tranquility, reflecting on the fellowship of the Holy Spirit is all I can do. I pray you too are blessed by this prayer.

Jeremiah 29:11 
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”

Guidance in making the best choices

Heavenly Father, I come before You, placing my deepest and heartfelt desires at Your feet. I have a decision to make. Lord, I want it to be in accordance with Your will and plans for my life.

Lord Jesus Christ, counselor of all who come for Your aid and seek Your guidance, help me that in all decisions. May my heart be not hardened to receive Your word. May my eyes not be blinded to see the truth and obedience to Your will.

I pray that the word of God and prayer be my decision-making tools and armor in all aspects of living.

Philippians 4:6 – 7
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”

Proverbs 11:14 
“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.

Guidance and Strength to stand against all attacks

Lord, may Your presence fill my heart and mind so that I will always be guided by love. Thank you for your perfect guidance and fellowship with the Holy Spirit, by which I have confidence I will not fall.

I will be strong to stand against all attacks of evil, even in these times when the things of the world attempt to stand between my choices for a way of life pleasing in Your sight.

1 Corinthians 10:31 
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God”

Decisions that bless others

Today, as I have a decision to make, help me make it with thoughts, not only to benefit myself, but to benefit all around me and to give You utmost Glory in all things.

May my sole focus be to live a life benefiting those who look to me in hope, who feel loved in the little things I do and in the blessings I share with others, in the simplest of my words and deeds.

Lord Jesus, I earnestly pray that I may never become proud and self-contented to think only of my own wants and desires.

Help me to open my heart and mind, to be a blessing to one who is in need. May I be a channel of Your peace and love to one who is in distress, and a light of hope for someone who is condemned.

Last, but not least, I pray for the spirit of wisdom and discernment to guide my thoughts as I make my decisions. AMEN!

  • Hi it is erroneously typed as “May my sole.” Should not it be May my soul. Kindly make the correction forthwith as possible. Not finding faults but facts 🙂 Thanks. God bless.

    • Hi Raju, actually in this case, it’s correct: “May my sole focus be to live a life benefiting those who look to me in hope,” The word sole is used to mean “only”, not “soul”. However thanks for being vigilant!

  • Dearest Father, The time has finally come as we knew it would, and we have made the decision to move in with our 91 year old Mom as she has become mentally very frail with Dementia. The transition will not be without challenges for both Mom and ourselves, as my Husband and I both have our own health issues, but I ask You for a smooth and peaceful blending on both sides. We feel it is Your will that we give up our home and move into her home to take care of her there where she can still see and enjoy the treasures her and Dad collected over the years. We know that You have been moving us toward this path for a while now. Lord, please help us respect each other, care for each other, love each other and be aware of each others needs every day.
    We need You with us Father and cannot do this without You by our side. You are our Great Healer,Guide,and Counselor. You are the Rock and Fortress that we cling to and who has always been there for us. Thank You. Our Hope is in You. We love You so very much. In the name of Your Blessed Son Jesus we pray. Amen.
