Today is the third day, high five to you for your commitment thus far. We have prayed for our government leaders and for physical strength, today we pray for directions and instructions. As we continue our journey in 2021 one prayer we should pray before making any decisions is for directions and instructions. In Psalms 32:8 the psalmist says “I will instruct thee, and teach thee in the way thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye”. Make God the first person you talk to each day before going on your way. He will never lead you wrong. As you pray fill in the blanks with the area(s) in which you are seeking directions and instructions.
PRAYER FOR DIRECTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I come boldly before Your throne of grace asking for divine directions and instructions concerning _____.
Father, I trust not in my own knowledge or wisdom concerning _____, and I lean not to my own understanding. I realize that my knowledge without You is empty, and my understanding without You is vain. I, therefore, choose to rather, acknowledge You, O Lord, concerning this matter. For Your Word tells us that if we acknowledge You in all our ways, You would direct our path. So as I acknowledge You in this situation, I thank You for directing me and leading me in Your path.
I thank You that Jesus Christ dwells within me in the person of the Holy Spirit. You said that in Jesus’ name, You will send the Holy Spirit, and He shall lead and guide us to all truth. So I thank You for the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit to Your truth, guidance, and direction concerning this matter.
I thank You Father that You are a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path, and I praise You for lighting my way. You also said in Your Word that You would guide me with Your eyes and Your Spirit. So Father, I submit myself unto You, as You lead, guide, and direct me by Your all-seeing eyes and Your ever-knowing Spirit.
Father, Your Word says that the steps of a righteous man are ordered by You, O Lord. I know that I am not righteous in my own works or deeds, but You have made me righteous through the blood of Christ Jesus. So therefore, I thank You for divinely ordering my every step concerning _____. Lord, You are my Shepherd. So I thank You for being a watchful Shepherd over me, who shall lead me down the right path concerning _____, and for keeping me from straying in the wrong direction.
Father, You said that Your sheep know Your voice, and a stranger they will not follow. I thank You for helping me to ignore the voice of the stranger (Satan), and for helping me to clearly and distinctively hear Your voice (the Great Shepherd) for instructions and directions in this situation; for I know that following Your voice leads to life, liberty, and peace; whereas, following the voice of the enemy leads to death, bondage and confusion. So Father, I refuse to follow the voice of the stranger, and I choose to follow only the voice of my Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
By the authority of the name of Jesus Christ, I bind the spirit of deception and every other satanic spirit that would attempt to deceive me or lead me down the wrong path. I cast down every spirit of confusion, and I pull down every stronghold of fear. You have not given me a spirit of fear (or confusion), but a spirit of power, and of love, and a sound mind.
Father, I thank You for also giving me an answer of peace concerning this matter before me. Now Father, I cast all my anxieties, worries, and cares concerning _____ upon You; and I thank You for sustaining me with Your answer of peace and instructions. And as I have committed this situation unto You, I thank You in advance for Your instructions, guidance, and Your clear-cut directions. In the name of Jesus Christ, I Pray, AMEN!
