Prayers for Discernment
Hearing the word “Discernment”, the first thing that comes to mind is being a good judge of what is right and what is wrong. But for Christians, it’s not as simple as that. Nowadays, the lines between what is right and wrong have long since been blurred.
This is why we need to call in extra help. And there’s really nobody else than God, who’s always kept up with everything you. In Matthew 7:7, He says “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”. That bible verse, despite its popularity, is most often than not, ignored. Do not make the same mistake.
Any decision that you have, whether it’s for your relationship, education, or even general decisions, you should seek the answers to it. From experience, God provides the most ingenious and simplest of solutions to any problem, big or small. So seeking guidance to these issues is a simple principle that we must all learn to make a habit of.
To that, we’ve written prayers that touch each and every one of us (Christian or otherwise).
“Do not ever forget to ask things from God. Difference between us and Him is that He has been around long before the problem and He will be available after. Move with the winning team always”.
Prayer for Discernment in Relationship
Lord, only You fully understands the concept of love. You’ve practically shown us just that for eternities. So I come before You today and I ask that You give me the insight to deepen/mend my relationship with SO (significant other’s name). Give me the strength to handle his/her behavior no matter how infuriating they get. And also the patience to make sound decisions in this relationship. I thank You for providing a shoulder to always lean on, now and forever more. In Jesus Name I pray.
Prayer for Discernment of Marriage
Oh God above, I stand before You to ask for wisdom about my marriage. I’ll be moving into an unknown territory and naturally, I have doubts and thus, questions. Is he/she the right choice and most importantly, do I have Your consent over my choice? Father, I place everything in Your hands to decide because You own my life and know what’s best. Thank You oh Lord, and In Jesus Name I pray.
Prayers for Discernment and Decision Making
In Exodus 3:14, Your words, “I Am That I Am” calls out to me. You are the past, present, and future; and so, You have already seen the outcome of all of the decisions that I can make now. God, I just ask that You help me make the best one. I thank You for listening oh Lord.
Prayer for Guidance and Discernment
Father, today is a new day and thus, a very different experience from last time. So I ask that you guide and help me be a better judge of all situations, tasks, and decisions that I’ll meet today.

Prayer for Divine Wisdom
Father above, I’m here to ask some things from You. I ask for patience to wait for Your insights into problems and situations that’ll arise around me. Lord, never allow me to commit to impatience and face the consequences of not applying deep wisdom. I thank You my God, and In Jesus Name I pray.
