Heavenly Father we thank you for waking us this morning in our right minds
Abba Father, we implore you to give us wisdom as we start moving toward our purpose. As you promise in your Word, we humbly pray that you will grant us wisdom in our decisions as we move toward our mission. We are grateful that we may rely on your knowledge instead of our understanding to get us where we need to go. Thank you for allowing us to approach the throne and make any request. We pray for your direction and give you praise for the work and influence of the Holy Spirit. We ask you Lord to strengthen the work of the Spirit in our lives.
We pray to resist the temptation to sin because we know how any sin can antagonize and muffle the voice of the Spirit. Please help us desire you more than we desire wrong. As we develop in the fruit of the Spirit, please help us to draw nearer to You. We ask that your Spirit lead us and that we always think about your promises and will. Lord, we come to you today with open hearts and hands, ready to rely on you to get us through the day and everything it will throw at us. Help us follow Nehemiah's example and turn to you for wisdom, courage, provision, and safety. Help us remember our dependency on you as we face difficult decisions and challenging circumstances. Please remind us that we are Your children and serve as Your ambassadors to the outside world. Please assist us in living today in a way that honors Your holy name.
What Scriptures said about guidance and wisdom
We are reminded of God's control over our lives throughout Scripture. If we look to Him for direction, He is our good Shepherd and He leads us. According to the Bible, God's plan brings happiness and pleasure. We may trust that God will grant knowledge when we ask for his direction and understanding through the Holy Spirit. We know our guide, so we don't need to worry about tomorrow or our next move. Do not rush through your day without first turning to God for direction. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for your order. Please pardon us for getting in the way of your plans and guide us in knowing when to pause and wait for your guidance. Lord, your methods are just; we are grateful for your kind grace.
