Words Of Encouragement
Have you ever been in the middle of reading scripture, and after re-reading a passage over and over, you still can’t understand it?
Or do you have a friend who you enjoy spending time with, but there is just something not quite right?
You have an unsettling feeling when you are with her?
Perhaps your child has been super clingy lately, and you want to understand why and how to help them, but they can’t express why they feel the way they do.
Clarity and wisdom go hand in hand.
Without one, you can’t have the other.
We need clarity in life to be able to see things clearly. Think about standing in front of a mirror that is clouded over with a film of smudge.
Can you see yourself?
Even worse, you need this mirror to get yourself ready for the day ahead. What do you do? You wipe it off or clean it, right?
Our lives are like that mirror.
Things come along such as sin, confusion, being out of God’s will, or relying on our own way of thinking which builds up a film of smudge on the mirror. In the world of truth and faith, Windex does not exist!
You can’t grab a bottle of this with paper towels and go to town!
To be able to clearly see in the mirror, we must ask God to clean it. Once He has, it is sparkling and clear as can be!
So, if you have a situation or something you want to better understand clearly, it’s time to ask for God’s help. If we don’t, we can ultimately make the wrong decisions or misunderstand something.
Prayer For Clarity
Thank you for showing me that I can’t rely on my own thinking or understanding. My only means of finding clarity is through you, Lord.
Forgive me for my searching for answers through myself and others when I should’ve come to you first.
Lord, I need help in clearing the fogginess that floats between me and understanding something clearly.
I pray you will help me in all areas of my life to find clarity and wisdom.
As I read your Word, please help me to fully understand what you want to communicate to me.
Help my mind and heart to be open and willing to accept the things that you want to reveal to me.
Father, I pray that you will help me to have a clear path of wisdom and understanding in my life.
Create in me a filter that removes the chaos and temptation of evil to see the truth and the way.
Guide me to step over and on from the things the world tempts me with.
Help me to see clearly in that mirror and show me what I need to change and give to you.
Change me and my way of thinking and help me to walk within your will. You are an awesome God. I pray in Jesus’ name – amen.
Prayer For Clarity And Focus
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for clarity in this difficult situation I am facing.
There is so much uncertainty and confusion, no matter which angle I approach it from.
I’ve tried so hard to tackle this with reasoning, but I’ve come to the end of my limited human knowledge.
I simply don’t know what I’m supposed to do.
Many times, I wish that things were simpler. But God, I know that you see all things objectively; you know exactly how you want this situation to end.
Your grace, your love, and your will for my life are made clear in your Word.
So Lord, grant me wisdom. Help me to see the world through your eyes.
Don’t let me be blinded by my emotions or my own personal desires. Just show me the way that would best glorify you.
May your Word be a beacon of light in the middle of all this darkness, guiding me in the right direction.
I want to make the choice that you desire for me, not simply the one that looks most appealing to me at this moment.
Give me confidence and resolve in whatever I decide, and once I have made the decision, clear my conscience of any guilt or shame.
Ultimately, help me to rely on your wisdom and not my own.
It is by your grace alone that this conflict can be resolved in a godly way. Lead me by your Holy Spirit.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
