A Prayer for the Wisdom and Guidance of the Holy Spirit
Father, in the Name of Jesus, I realise that as a believer, my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. My acknowledgement of Your presence on a daily basis makes my faith in You effectual. I believe that You, heavenly Father, are leading and guiding me by the Holy Spirit through my spirit, and illuminating my mind.
As I yield to the Holy Spirit, I believe that my steps are ordered of You, LORD. I commit and trust myself wholly to Your guidance, expecting You to cause my thoughts to become agreeable to Your will, so my plans will be established and succeed. I trust in You, LORD, with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. As I acknowledge You, You direct me in paths of righteousness.
I confess that as I become more God-inside minded, I can more easily recognise the inward witness of the Holy Spirit. I hear the voice of the Good Shepherd, and a stranger’s voice I will not follow. I am aware that my spirit is the candle of The LORD.
I meditate in The WORD day and night, not letting it depart from my mouth. I test my inward witness with The WORD, for the Spirit and The WORD agree. I am quick to act on The WORD, as well as the prompting of my spirit. I am not a hearer only, but also a doer. Therefore, I am blessed in all my deeds.
