Before Praying Prayers for Clarity

 Prayer is a powerful spiritual act, but not all prayers are equal. It’s important to follow these tips when using written prayers.

  • God longs for us to have authentic and personal prayers. Please, don’t think that reading someone else’s prayer is the same as a prayer from your heart. I would encourage that as you read through these prayers, to find one that resonates with where you are at. From there, let that prayer inspire your prayer time.
  • Simple ways you can personalize your prayers for clarity
    • Get specific: mention people, situations, emotions, and what you specifically need clarity for.
    • Expand: most of these are brief prayers, but don’t let that stop you from praying once it’s over.

Alright, let’s get started!

Prayer for direction and clarity

Prayer For Clarity Of Mind

Lord, thank You that You have given us sober minds. Thank You, Father, that You have protected us from depression and stress. Thank You, because everything that we set our hearts to do, we have done, and You have comforted us in the things that we were not able to do.

We pray You will frustrate every demonic effort to clog our minds and cause us not to see clearly. We want to have the mind of Christ. May You, O Lord, strengthen us when we need to take action. Let Your Word clear our every doubt and fear. Teach our hearts to trust You even when we are unsure what to do. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Prayer For Clarity In Decision Making

Lord, in this decision, we thank You because You are our guide. Your Word is a lamp unto our feet and it also lights the way. You make us live our lives in anticipation of Your blessing. Lord, do not allow us to run into decisions that will cause us pain or hardship. Put a hedge over our minds that we will be guarded by it.

Lord, may we not become hasty in deciding, but that you would give us the clarity to make the right choice. Lord Jesus, let Your mind become our longing forever, that the mind that was in Christ Jesus may be in us too. In the name of Jesus, amen.

Prayer For Clarity And Wisdom

If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him. – James 1:5 AMP

Lord, give us wisdom in areas that we know we are incapable of handling and the clarity we need for areas we can’t see clearly in. Your Word says that if we ask for wisdom, that You will give it generously to us. So, Lord, please pour out your wisdom in my life so that I can make the right decisions in this season. Speak to my heart and give me clarity. In the name of Jesus, amen.

A Prayer For Peace And Clarity

Lord, in this particular situation, I have lost my peace. So many things have come up and have overtaken me. I am worried and fearful over (insert situation). Lord, I have been crushed and wounded that it feels hard to stand. Lord, even though it feels hard to see again, I lay all my worries and anxieties at Your feet.

Let Your peace rule in my heart and let it remind me to be thankful in all circumstances. I am grateful that You are my Prince of Peace who paid the ultimate price to take all my fears away. Lord, in this situation I joyfully receive Your peace and clarity that surpasses all understanding as I move forward with my life. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.

 Prayer for Clarity on What To Do

Father of Lights, thank You for Your presence. Daily, we are bombarded with different problems and opportunities. All these are set in a way that if we don’t have sober minds we will fall. Father God, we ask that You will give clarity in every task that we set our hearts to do.

Give us clarity on the methods that we employ to do our work. Lord clear our minds on who to involve and who not to involve. Help us not to choose things randomly. Give us clarity on when to wait and when to proceed with our tasks. Help us keep our minds focused on Your instructions in Jesus’ name. Amen.
