Prayer For Clarity

In need of prayer for clarity? We will sometimes find ourselves in situations where we’re not sure what the next right move is.

During those times it is especially important to seek for clarity and we can do so through prayer.

The Bible is filled with wisdom and guidance for our everyday life. One of the things that scripture tells us to ask for is wisdom.

James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

image reads "prayers for clarity".

If you’re seeking clarity, God welcomes you to ask for His guidance and wisdom to shed light on your circumstance.

If you’ve found yourself in a circumstance that is confusing, where you lack certainty, or you feel plagued with indecision.

I hope that these prayers for clarity will help you see more clearly which path you should take.

Prayer for Clarity

Prayer for God’s Direction

Proverbs 4:11

“I instruct you in the way of wisdom
and lead you along straight paths.”


Thank You for how You have directed me and led me in the past.

I am eternally grateful that You have chosen me, and allowed showered me with Your mercy and brought me into salvation.

I know my life is not my own, but it belongs to You.

Knowing this truth, I come to You laying this situation down before You.

I don’t want to depend on my own understanding, because I know Your thoughts are higher than mine.

And so are Your ways. That is why I come before You, asking that You would direct me in Your wisdom.

Please lead me in the way that will honor You, and that You have purposed for me to walk in.

If this isn’t what You want me to do, I ask that You would allow doors to close.

But if it is Your will, I ask that You would make that clear.

Please bring clarity and peace over my mind concerning the right decision.

Help me to lean on You throughout this time, knowing that You go before me.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Prayer for Godly Wisdom

James 1:5-8

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”

“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. “

“Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”


I am thankful for Your word that is filled with wisdom, and practical application for my daily life.

I know that there is no better place to turn to in times of confusion and indecision, and to find clarity and guidance.

Today I really need Your wisdom to show me what to do.

Please forgive me for the times I have leaned on my own understanding, and forgotten to turn to You.

Help me to submit my own plans, thoughts and ways to You. I don’t want to seek my will, I want to seek Yours.

So I humbly ask that You would grant me godly wisdom in this situation.

Your word says that those who lack wisdom should ask You, and that You give generously. Please extend Your generous hand towards me, and give me eyes to see clearly.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Prayer to Trust God When You Don’t Understand

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;”

“in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight”

Heavenly Father,

Thank You for Your patience with me in times like this.

I know it is only human nature to desire to know what is happening, and to have a sense of control.

But I am particularly reminded that I am not in control, but You are.

You are sovereign over everything, even in this time of uncertainty, where I don’t know what to do, or where to go. But even in my uncertainty, You are certain.

Even when I don’t see, nothing is hidden from You. Please help me to place my trust in You during this time.

Keep me from seeking assurance in other things aside from You.

Forgive me for the times when I have relied on my own knowledge, and tried to do things without You. Please help me to keep the faith, and stand firm.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Prayer for Clarity Before Getting into a Relationship

Proverbs 16:9

“In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.”


Thank You for allowing my path to cross with [name] path.

We have enjoyed getting to know one another, and spending time together. I know that a relationship is no small commitment to get into.

That is why I am seeking Your guidance on the way forward.

You have created relationships, and ultimately marriage to be a beautiful picture of Your relationship with Your church.

I know that marriage isn’t simply meant to fulfill our own selfish desires, but serves the greater purpose of bringing glory to Your name.

Help me to remember that marriage is the end goal of a romantic relationship.

Please keep me from getting into relationships out of loneliness, or for reasons that will not last very long.

If this relationship is in Your will, I ask that You lead us to a place of commitment, where we can pursue You together.

Help us to get to know one another better, and grant us clarity in any areas where things are not as clear.

If it is Your will for us to get into a relationship, I ask that You would guard our hearts and lead our relationship.

If it is not Your will, I ask that You would grant me clarity and lead me in that way.

In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.

Prayer for Godly Counsel

Proverbs 11:14

“For lack of guidance a nation falls,
but victory is won through many advisers.”


Thank You for always being available for me to turn to.

Whether it’s early in the morning, or late at night, I know that You have never left me nor forsaken me.

Thank You for how You have guided me and continue to show me the way forward.

My prayer is that You would place godly people in my life who will point me to You, and who I can count on to pray with me and walk with me through these times of uncertainty.

Please help me to seek out godly counsel, and advice from those who know You and who seek to honor You.

I know that You haven’t created us to do life alone, and I am especially needing guidance and clarity during this time.

Sometimes others can see parts of a situation that we might not be able to see from where we’re standing.

Please bring honest, genuine and God fearing counsel into my life. And help me to become that same answered prayer to someone else.

In Jesus’ name, amen.

I hope that God will grant you the clarity that you are seeking for as you come to Him in honest prayer.
