Prayer: Grant Me Understanding Lord

Lord, I struggle with unanswered questions as I look to my life and I wonder about the plans You have made for it. There are so many times when I just don’t understand, when I don’t quite get it. I wonder at the path I am led down as I find myself in confusion, not quite certain as to what it all means.

I toil with the hardships that come, and I know that they are a part of this world. I don’t question that Lord. What I do wonder is what it is supposed to learn from all of it. I know that, though my struggles don’t come from You, that You can use them to guide me, to teach me, to strengthen and to preserve me. I just need to know how You do that and what it is that You want me to learn from it all.

You have promised, through Your Word, that if I lack wisdom and discernment, You will grant it to me, that all I need to do is come to You with a sincere heart and a willing spirit. That I how I come, knocking at Your door O Lord, answer it for me. Enlighten me with Your wisdom, that truth that transcends all human knowledge and understanding. Open my eyes to show me Your bigger picture, to show me the divine nature of Your wondrous and glorious plan for me.

Guide me gracious God, take me and lead me to the altar of Your truth and transcending righteousness. Open Your heart to me that I may see the righteousness of Your ways all of the days of my life as You strengthen and preserve me in the truth of Your ways, illuminating the dark world, the dark places in my world, with Your light and Your love for me.

In the name of Your Son, my Lord and my Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in the Kingdom Everlasting, Amen.
