Today we will be dealing with a prayer for help and guidance. We all need the leading of God to get somethings done on this planet’s surface. Fulfilling purpose in life would be a mirage without the help of God Almighty. The spirit of God does this guidance we are talking about. The scripture says 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.
Many people have fallen into the trap of the enemy because they have no guardian; many destinies have been destroyed because the spirit of God is absent to lead and direct. King Saul lost the throne the moment the spirit of God departed from him. Funnily, the life of a man can not be void of a spirit. When the spirit of God vacates the life of a man, the spirit of the devil occupies the space, this is because the spirit controls the physical. King Saul as great as he was fell victim because he failed to yield to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The spirit of God told the Prophet Samuel to instruct the king who was Saul not to go to battle until Samuel had returned and offered a sacrifice unto God.
However, when Samuel was not forthcoming, King Saul been derilious with fear of defeat went ahead and made a sacrifice on behalf of the prophet, and that act alone was the genesis of his fall as a king. When the life of a man is void of help and guidance, calamity is not far from such a person. King Saul’s life was void of the two, and we all know what ended his chapter as a King. Similarly, in our lives, we need the help of God, and we need his guidance over many things. While the help of God makes rescue us out of a difficult situation, the direction of God, will prevent us from falling into that difficult situation. So, prayer for help and guidance is something relevant to our lives. You will see people escape an accident scene just because they have been led by the spirit of God to exit a particular scene. Why won’t you want this help and guidance from God? We have compiled a list of prayer for help and guidance.
- Lord Jesus, I pray for the guardian of the Holy Spirit, as it has been written in the book of John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. I pray that you will endow me with your spirit that will guide me and help me out of difficult situations. I pray that the power of the holy spirit will not vacate my life in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, you are my present help in the times of need, Lord when the battle of life comes at me, let me find help in you, Lord Jesus. I pray that you will strengthen me from the heavens and deliver me from life-threatening issues in the name of Jesus.
- Father Lord, I understand that spirit controls the physical, Lord Jesus, I pray for your holy spirit and power. I also know that the life of a man can not be void of a spirit. I refuse to be led astray by the spirit of deceit. I grant access to your spirit in my life. I pray that my life will be overshadowed with your spirit in the name of Jesus. Lord, from now, I want you to teach and guide me in the right way to go. The part that I’m to thread to become successful in life, the things I’m supposed to do to fulfill the purpose of my existence, Lord Jesus, help me to start doing them in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, part of your guidance, is vision. The bible says the secret of the Lord is with those that fear him. Lord Jesus, I want you to open my eyes and ears of understanding and let me begin to see and hear from you. I want you to be the sailor of my ship, I want you to be the pilot of my life, Lord God, as the spirit of God led Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Lord I pray that your spirit will start leading me in the name of Jesus.
- Father, I refuse to fall victim to any evil circumstances in the name of Jesus. I want you to start showing me things to happen. For it has been written in the book of Acts of apostle that at the end o will pour out my spirit upon all flesh, your sons shall prophesize, your young men shall see vision and your old men shall dream dreams. Lord, I want you to always reveal things to me, the revelation that will serve as a guide for me to live a good and safe life, Lord Jesus, pour your spirit of revelation upon me in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, I pray that I will not lack help when I need it most. When all that could solve my problem is help, Lord Jesus, please let me find one. Let helpers surround me both in North, East, West, and South, let me be surrounded by people that will help me in the name of Jesus.
- Lord God, as I will be going out from tomorrow, I pray that you will begin to guide me, I pray for the spiritual readiness to be able to understand when you speak to me. Help me to recognize you and grant me the grace to start following all your biddings. I refuse to do things based on my mortal knowledge. I pray that you will guide me in the name of Jesus.
