We are facing so many challenges in our lives. We have important choices to make daily. Is this job good for me, is this the right woman or man to share my life with, where should I apply for college, do I invest in this company? Just to name a few.
Of course, the list goes on. However, because God knows everything, and He has the Power to make sure we receive what is good for us, it is important that we consult with Him before we pursue important matters in our life. With that in mind, I present to you, The Prayer For Seeking Help…
“O God! I ask You by Your Knowledge. I seek help by Your Power. I ask You for Your Vast Grace. Surely, You have Power and I have no power. You know and I don’t know. You are the All-Knower Of The Unseen. O God! If You know that this matter (mention what the matter is). Is good for me in my way of life, in this life, and the life to come.
Then ordain it for me. Make it easy for me and give blessings to me in it. If You know that this matter is bad for me, for my way of life, in this life, and the life to come. Then, turn it away from me, turn me away from it, and ordain for me what is good wherever it is, and make me pleased with it.”
The answer to this prayer is, if you get the thing you asked about, it is good for you. If you don’t get it, it is bad for you. However, God will give you what is better and make you pleased with it, as the end of the prayer states.
