Prayer for when you don’t know what to do

When facing a tough decision your mind goes around in circles. You try to understand and figure it all out yourself, but it’s impossible. It seems like you don’t have the time to pray about it.

If you pray, it will save you time later. There’s nothing that wastes time and energy more than confusion. Prayer helps put your thoughts in order.

Prayer for when you don't know what to do

When you don’t know what to do, go to God in prayer.

It may take time to get an answer, but God always delivers. You might even want to set up a prayer campaign during the process. Use a notebook and dedicate one page to each day of prayer. It can be for as many days as you need it. Write clearly at the top of the page what you are praying about.

After each prayer session, jot down what you feel God might be trying to tell you. Repeat this process each day until you begin to have more clarity about your situation.

God’s presence gives you peace. Take the time. Pray. Read from the Bible. You’ll notice the confusion begins to disappear. Try not to have a preference about outcomes, and let the Spirit guide you.

Even Jesus took the time to consult with his Father about tough decisions. Imitate our Lord and the results will be glorious.

In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God.

Luke 6:12

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 3:5

 

PRAYER FOR WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

Dear heavenly Lord,

I face situations and decisions. It’s complicated and dense. I feel confused and lost. Can you help me? Can you show me the light?

First of all, oh Lord, calm my heart. Let me know that my peace depends upon you alone. No matter how things turn out, with you at the center of my life, I will stand. I will survive.

May your Spirit keep me balanced. Lord, show me your will. Let my mind and heart be open to what best serves truth and life. Give me courage to do what is right. Show me your word. Reveal it to my heart, oh Lord, and make my conviction strong. For when I go to you, and you show me your will, the blessing is guaranteed.

It may not be easy, it may take time, but upon Christ I stand firm.

In Jesus name, Amen.

  1. Pray for my two Auntie is in the Hospital right now. The one is car accident and the other have a sickness in her body. And also my allowance money too to pay for my tuition fee.

  2. Pray for my 30 year-old grandson.. stuck in life especially with his daily dependence on marijuana. Has lived with anxiety n depression most of his life n can function n does well in his jobs but no motivation to become independent on live on his own, no savings , lives paycheck to paycheck , spends all his money mon nothing to show for it! Is totally lost! He willask for prayer when there’s a need in his life but doesn’t seek a life with Christ because he doesnt want to leave or be without what the world has to offer but yet he continues to struggle with his anxiety n depressed life . He’s in a vicious cycle.

      Set the captives free O Lord… send your healing and restoration… pour out your Spirit in abundance… give Margaret peace… hear her prayer O Lord… deliver her grandson to a healthy place… let him be free in the love of the Lord… in Jesus name, Amen.

      God bless you Margaret!

  4. I come before you Lord, to ask you to please help my son find a job soon. Every job he applies for, there is just no feedback.

    With your help, I know my lord, there will be a door that is opened, they will call him back, and he will get out of this dark place.

    Thank you Lord for everything.
