God's Path To Follow

Updated on October 5, 2012

Dear God

I pray every night, please lead me on the path you want me to follow.

It may be the narrow one, hard too see, so please lead me.

I pray every night, for forgiveness of sins, There are some I remember,

and some I do not. so please still forgive me.

I pray every night to bless all your children. The ones I know, and the ones I don't.

You made us all in Your image, so please bless your children.

I pray every night asking You to accept , me my imperfections abound

And yes, they still are around.

So, I will keep praying to lead me on the path You want me to follow

If it is narrow, allow me please you.

      What a great prayer. I always feel "released" (I don't know how else to describe it) when I am humbling myself before the Lord. It's a great thing to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ even if we don't know them. We all need prayer for direction, and wisdom, and protection from the evil one. Thanks for sharing this reminder!

      Thank you Lady Lyell I would love to talk to in emails. You are such a wonderful gift from Jehovah. He had even had me dream about my studies with Jehovah Witnesses.

      Goodmorning Michele,

      Your reply above is very touching and I can hear from your words that you are sincere in wanting to please God.

      We have all faced difficult times, some more than others but never the less small steps forward is all that is required.

      Jesus ransom sacrific paved the way for all our sins to be forgiven so with that in mind put the past aside when it comes to serving Jehovah.

      I feel for you so much that I would sincerely like to be there for you if you need a chat

      I am giving you my private email address and should I hear from you I will also give you my Skype details. Actually, I have returned to South Africa to live but not in the same area as previously and the witnesses have made me feel so welcome , a true brotherhood. Have a nice day and regards from sunny South Africa

      Thank you so much LadyLyell as you already know, this is the only path I can follow. Jehovah loves us, and since He has done so much for me. I want to serve Him. I love Him and also pray that I never stop. Praying for the path He wants me to follow is just one of the prayers I pray every day. You will understand this, but in the past few years, Jehovah has sent Jehovah Witnesses to my house, and even to the barn where I volunteer. That to me is a serious message :)

      Hello Michele,

      You certainly have a way with words!

      You obviously have done all you can to put any past behind you that has brought you sadness as is clear by your words herein.

      This is now a good time to move forward in Jehovahs service as you will find that such involvement will fill your life with happiness.

      As my mother is an epileptic I can say I do understand much of how you have suffered. How fortunate that you were able to have the operation you had but at quite an expense it seems!

      If your husband is as keen as you are in a happy future I'm sure he will be looking forward to a marriage soon.

      I hope to be able to be of some comfort. Regards!

      It is so easy to be mislead. It is so easy to walk the wrong path, It is so easy to listen to lies that seem right. Sweet Christian Friends.. guard your heart.. Save it for Our Lord.. Stay in the Word.. Love GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART! Jesus told us that.

      GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!! Have a wonderful day in the Lord!

      I love this poem prayer to the Lord God .. he listens and hears those that love HIM and the ones that are seeking him

      God bless you my friend for writing this

      Michele, 

      this is very beautiful poem, which is inspiring very thoughtful and interesting comments; way to go.

      "28 But to man He said, 

      Behold, the reverential and worshipful fear of the Lord—that is Wisdom; 

      and to depart from evil is understanding."

      Job 28.

      Michele: an awesome, heartfelt prayer. Voted up. I absolutely love the picture with the fork in the road.

      I'm reading a book titled, "Pray Big" in which the author talks about pinpoint prayer.

      I believe God is so extremely awesome and I stand on His grace for everything.

      I will be emailing you this weekend. You are in my prayers every single day. Blessings, Sparklea :)
