prayer for guidance

How do we hear God's guidance in our lives, when most of us do not audibly hear heavenly instructions?

Hearing from God begins by allowing your heavenly Father "access to all areas". Developing a deep relationship is as easy as letting your guard down!
Celtic Knot
As we are vulnerable and asking God for guidance in prayer, we will be in the right frame of mind to receive it. In order to be "guided" we need to let go - and be prepared to sense God's leading. God speaks to us all differently so his voice may come through a scripture, something you see, some words from a friend or a heartfelt feeling that directs the way. We were made to be emotional, physical and spiritual beings. Do not limit the ways in which you hear - and be prepared to test and filter your choices. Wherever possible, work things out through relationships, rather than on your own.

Prayer for Guidance and Protection

I do not walk in darkness
But in your light and love.
You carry me when my feet fail
And hold me high above.

And I do not drift in every tide
But stand upon your truth.
You are my map, my friend, my guide
I put my trust in you.

So as I walk, a shield of faith
Surrounds my every move.
You are my quiet fortress,
I know I'm safe in you.

Prayer for Guidance in Relationship

Lord, your love is agapē love
Real, unconditional and full of grace.
Help us to weave this golden thread of love into the tapestry of our lives. That we may truly give to one another, in respect, kindness and gentleness. That we may be quick to forgive, ready to hope, and filled with your joy.
May we reflect all these many colours of your kingdom.
Lord, help us to complement each other, to support one another and to bring out the best in each other.

Your love is agapē love,
Come weave this love into our lives.

Prayer For Guidance

(the prayer poem in the film above)

Lord, you promised that when I seek You with all our heart, I will find You.
I seek only after You.
Still my troubled heart.
Calm my wayward mind.
I seek only after You.

I'm never going to be able to figure this out on my own,
And right now I'm leaning heavily on You.
I seek only after You.

I give you all the anxieties and fears I feel inside
I release them all to You
I seek only after You.

I open up my life
So that it becomes like an open book before You
May You write in it Your words of inspiration and direction.

Still my troubled heart.
Calm my wayward mind.
I seek only after You.

I await Your voice.
