Prayer for Discernment and Judgement

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight. 


Heavenly Father, I approach Your throne of grace and mercy, leaving my burdens at the foot of the cross. Father today I request that Your Holy Spirit draws near as You give me discernment in all that I do.


Open the eyes of my heart, Oh Lord, so that I may be able to identify the plans of the enemy.

Guide me to make the right decisions in my life as I follow through with Your will. Raise me up, Lord, so that I would not fall by the wayside.

Take full complete control of every aspect of my life.


Divine Wisdom

Father nothing in this world escapes Your sight. You are the God that sees, that hears and will deliver me from the grasp of the enemy.

Invoke divine wisdom within me so that I would not be a slave to my flesh. For the flesh is weak, but the spirit is willing.



Teach me to walk in obedience while I stand firm on You, my rock and fortress.

I pray that the discernment that I seek awakens within me as I remain faithful to You, my Lord and Savior.

In Jesus' Mighty name I pray, Amen!
