Asking God for the Guidance of the Holy Spirit

2 Mins read

The Holy Spirit has a variety of purposes, each of which are talked about in Scripture. One of the most powerful purposes of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer is found in His ability to guide us. Guidance goes far beyond simply telling us which way to go. Instead, the guidance of the Holy Spirit involves helping us understand God’s Word.

It means that He helps us make Godly decisions. Most of all, it helps us ensure that we are constantly seeking God in every area of our lives. Today, ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and submit your will to His.

Pray These Verses

John 16:7-9 (NIV)
“But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgement: about sin, because people do not believe in me;

John 16:13-14 (NIV)
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.”

Galatians 5:16-18 (NIV)
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Pray This Prayer

Heavenly Father, I need guidance. I know that I often make decisions that fulfill the desires of my flesh, but those desires don’t line up with the plans that You have for me. Please, send the Holy Spirit so He can guide me and direct me onto the paths that You want me to take.

Teach me about sin, righteousness, and judgement so I can live a life that is pleasing in Your eyes. Help me to walk in His truths so I can avoid the desires of the flesh. In Christ’s name, Amen.

Thank God

Heavenly Father, thank You for the promise of the Holy Spirit and for the work that He completes in my life. Thank You for giving me a way to know Your desires for my life and for the power of the Spirit who helps me walk in the paths that You have set for me. Thank You for being actively at work in every part of my life. In Christ’s name, Amen.
