Guide My Steps

The steps of the God-pursuing ones follow firmly in the footsteps of the Lord, and God delights in every step they take to follow him. Psalm 37:23 The Passion Translation

As we begin this “new beginning” of 2020, I cannot think of anything more appropriate, than to begin this new decade with seven prayers.

Therefore, for the next seven weeks we will post a prayer for our beginnings for any new endeavor.

May God guide each and every step we take in this New Year.

The only way to get rid of your past is to make a future out of it. God will waste nothing.

–Phillips Brooks

Week One: Guide My Steps


You alone know where our feet are headed in this New Year.

So, we look to You alone to guide our steps.

We look to heaven, asking that Your Holy Spirit’s voice guide our hopes, our dreams, our plans.

May we walk in obedience, heeding each gentle nudge–turning to the left or right according to Your will.

We surrender everything to Your perfect plans and ways.

Take our feet only where You would have us to go.

We lift our footsteps to You in absolute trust.

In Jesus Name we ask all of this,


When you turn to the right or turn to the left, you will hear his voice behind you to guide you, saying,

    “This is the right path; follow it.” Isaiah 30:21 TPT
