A fundamental inhabitant of the Christian faith is God’s counsel. For Christians, it serves as a reminder that God is constantly with us and ready to guide us in making the best decisions. This guidance prayers request is a reassurance that, with God’s assistance, we may find the strength and bravery to face and overcome any obstacles we may encounter each day.
The Bible, which includes God’s word and teachings, as well as the still, little voice of conscience that speaks to us when we are in doubt, are just a few of the various ways in which God leads us.
Additionally, God can speak to us through prayer, meditation, and friendship with other Christians. It is ultimately up to us to decide whether or not to heed God’s instruction and put it into action in our everyday lives. We may rely on God to guide us on a peaceful and meaningful road if we have faith and obey him.
We are reminded of God’s control over our lives throughout Scripture. If we look to Him for leadership, He is our good Shepherd and He guides us. According to what the Bible says, God’s plan brings happiness and pleasure. We may trust that God will grant knowledge when we ask for His guidance and understanding through the Holy Spirit.

I want to think of and feel you in my heart as I begin today. Let me put on the equipment you have given me each day as I get dressed: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the belt of truth, the shoes of peace, and the sword of the spirit with praise on my tongue for you and requests for people nearby and those I come in contact with.
Give me your daily bread today. As the Bread of Life, Your nourishment will keep me going through all difficulties and hunger like manna.

Lord, please prevent me from speaking without thinking and enable me to control my heart’s desires today.

Bible verses about God’s guidance: Psalm 25:4-5 – “LORD, teach me your courses; show me your ways. You are God, my Savior, and I look to you for guidance and instruction at all times.
If any of you lack knowledge, ask God, who gives liberally to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you, according to James 1:5.
I will worship the LORD because He gives me advice; even at night, my heart teaches me (Psalm 16:7-8). I never lose sight of the LORD. I won’t be moved while he is at my right hand.
Proverbs 3:5–6 advises, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
According to Psalm 32:8–9, “I will counsel you with my loving eye on you; I will teach you in the way you should go.” Be unlike the horse or mule, which have no understanding but need to be reined in with a bit and bridle in order to come to you.
According to John 16:13, the Spirit of truth will lead you into all truth when he appears. He won’t speak on his own; instead, he will only relay what he hears and inform you of future events.
