As Christians, we need to put God first in everything that we do. We need to communicate not only our gratitude but also ask for guidance as we go through our day.

We can do this by saying a prayer for guidance. In this prayer, we ask our Heavenly Father to help us choose the right path as we go through our day. Some great prayers for this are:

Prayer for Guidance 1

Dear Lord, I come before you this morning, asking for guidance and providence from you. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.

Help me today to learn the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

You said just like the birds of the air, we should not worry about tomorrow for you are our provider and protector if we believe in you and follow your teachings.

Lord, I ask for guidance, guard, protect and govern me, my loved ones and my friends today so that the evil one does not influence us negatively or harm us.

I pray all these through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. Amen.

Lord, sometimes I feel inadequate in terms of ideas, thoughts, and willpower while I am carrying out my day-to-day activities.

But I know that through Your guidance and abundant graces, You will turn my inadequacies into the zeal and zest that will produce fruits in plenty in Your vineyard.

Dear Lord, guide me from walking in dangerous and sinful paths. May I see Your saving hand every time I get corrected from wrong and help me to acknowledge my mistakes, sins, transgressions and wrongdoings.
