Prayers for strength and guidance

Strength is so important. Strength to carry on, make decisions, persevere, etc. But sometimes strength isn’t enough. Life can throw you curveballs in such a way that you need strength and guidance. Guidance to channel your energy in the right direction. Guidance so that your efforts aren’t wasted. Guidance to make progress on things that actually matter.

You wouldn’t drive a car with no steering wheel, right? You also wouldn’t wouldn’t ride in a car knowing the brakes didn’t work. Me either.

That being said, I’ve found myself petitioning God for strength (as I often do) and still feeling “lost.” Lost – not as in the Christian sense, but lost as in “I have no idea what to do next.”

Have you been there? I have. Maybe that’s why you ended up here. If so, here’s a prayer for you to pray.

Prayer for Strength and Guidance

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the blessings you’ve given me. I am excited to do your will. Please give me the guidance necessary to choose the correct path ahead of me. Please allow me not to be confused by the options, and give me clarity to see what decisions you want me to make.

I trust in You to give me the words to say and the strength to make the correct decisions. I pray that you give me the strength and guidance necessary to do your will.

To You be the glory, Amen.

A prayer for strength and guidance cannot be where it ends. After you’ve prayed this prayer you must make a conscious effort to keep your eyes open for signs as to what to do. Your decisions will become easier, but you won’t see a straight and narrow path. The Bible teaches that it won’t be easy, and it won’t always be obvious, but if you make diligent effort, He will guide you.

Blessings be upon you.

Guidance Prayer

…by the word of your lips I have kept myself from the ways of the violent. My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not slipped. I call on you, O God, for you will answer me; give ear to me and hear my prayer. (NIV)
Ps 17:4b-6

God knows all things, but gives us the ability to choose. A major turning point is a Christian’s life is when they decide to turn their life’s direction over to Jesus. However, it doesn’t stop there. Once someone does this, now they have to listen to the directions of the Lord. Yet this voice can be very faint, and there can be many blocks between yourself and the Word. Daily prayer can help significantly in helping you find the right path. Trust in the Lord, and He will provide.

If you need a prayer for guidance and direction, try one of these prayers:

Oh my God, You know my weakness and failings, and that without Your help I can accomplish nothing for the good of souls, my own and others’. Grant me, therefore, the help of Your grace. Grant it according to my particular needs this day. Enable me to see the task You will set before me in the daily routine of my life, and help me work hard at my appointed tasks. Teach me to bear patiently all the trials of suffering or failure that may come to me today. Amen.

If you celebrate Mass, here is a prayer to pray after each one:

Lord Jesus, may everything I do begin with You, continue with Your help, and be done under Your guidance.
May my sharing in the Mass free me from my sins, and make me worthy of Your healing.
May I grow in Your Love and Your service, and become a pleasing offering to You; and with You to Your Father.
May the mystery I celebrate help me to reach eternal life with You.

There are also several Psalms that you can use directly as prayers. The Psalms were written during the time of King David, and many of them are ascribed to him. Psalm 25 is a good example:

To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
O my God, in you I trust;
    do not let me be put to shame;
    do not let my enemies exult over me.
Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame;
    let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
    teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth, and teach me,
    for you are the God of my salvation;
    for you I wait all day long.

Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love,
    for they have been from of old.
Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions;
    according to your steadfast love remember me,
    for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!

Good and upright is the Lord;
    therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
He leads the humble in what is right,
    and teaches the humble his way.
All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness,
    for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.

For your name’s sake, O Lord
    pardon my guilt, for it is great.
Who are they that fear the Lord?
    He will teach them the way that they should choose.

They will abide in prosperity,
    and their children shall possess the land.
The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him,
    and he makes his covenant known to them.
My eyes are ever toward the Lord,
    for he will pluck my feet out of the net.

Turn to me and be gracious to me,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
Relieve the troubles of my heart,
    and bring me out of my distress.
Consider my affliction and my trouble,
    and forgive all my sins.

Consider how many are my foes,
    and with what violent hatred they hate me.
O guard my life, and deliver me;
    do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
May integrity and uprightness preserve me,
    for I wait for you.

Redeem Israel, O God,
    out of all its troubles. 

If you have trouble staying in line with God’s commandments, here is another prayer that can keep you straight.

 God the King eternal, who divides the day from the darkness, and has turned the shadow of death into the light of morning; I pray that this day you will incline my heart to keep your commandments, driving temptation from my mind. Guide my feet into the way of peace; that having done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, I may, when the night comes, rejoice in giving you thanks for a day lived in your presence; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The most profound prayers are the ones that come from the heart. Tell the Lord that you are lost and need direction. He will hear you and guide your footsteps.

prayers for strength and guidance

“Divine justice pursued its course; disasters came thick on me: I was forced to pass through the valley of the shadow of death. His chastisements are mighty; and one smote me which has humbled me for ever. You know I was proud of my strength: but what is it now, when I must give it over to foreign guidance, as a child does its weakness? Of late, Jane – only – only of late – I began to see and acknowledge the hand of God in my doom. I began to experience remorse, repentance; the wish for reconcilement to my Maker. I began to pray: very brief prayers they were, but very sincere.”
