11 Prayers For Wisdom And Guidance

Life is all about decision-making. And each decision we make has an effect on our life. Just one decision made can alter the course of your life for good. So you have to always make sure you make the right decisions.

But as humans, we can only know so much, and this means that we may not always know which decision is best for us. That is why it is important to always seek guidance from God. God is all-knowing. He knows the beginning and the end and he knows which decisions will be best for us.

So instead of relying on your own choices and wants, seek wisdom and guidance from God through prayer in all you do. The bible says that “if any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you”. James 1:5

King Solomon asked God for wisdom and God gave him. If you ask God too, he will give you. The bible says to ask and it shall be given to us. Asking God for wisdom and guidance means you are giving him total control of your life, so he will direct your path and order your steps.

Here are some prayers for wisdom and guidance to pray over your life daily.
