Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank you, as a believer in Jesus Christ, for the opportunity to have spiritual discernment from You and Your Word (the Bible) through the Holy Spirit. This also gives me the capacity to see and understand what is right and wrong. 1 Corinthians 2:14-15a But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things.

I ask You to show me any corrections needed in my life and give the ability to follow them. I want to know Your perfect will for my life because it gives me a plan of safety, comfort, peace, and protection. Direct me to know when I am going in the right direction, and to experience the truth of the second half of Romans 8:6. “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

It is a blessing that You, the Creator of this awesome universe, have an interest in my wellbeing. You want to guide me with love and wisdom along this life’s journey. Remind me often that You want to teach me through Your Word (the Bible), and that It alone has the power to overcome my tendency to sin and the work of the evil one (Satan).

Direct me to be open to the promise in Psalm 32:8. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” To God be the glory! Amen.
