I Don't Know What to Pray Today


Are you sometimes at a loss of words when it comes to prayer?

I just don't know what to say sometimes in my words to God. Yesterday God introduced me to a prayer that we can pray, and we can meditate on it. I love that combination! Prayer is our conversation with God. Meditation is fixing our thoughts on God's Word.

Why not combine the two?

This short daily series will be quick prayers from God with instruction on mediation. I will post them daily until my author God leads me to stop. I hope to dedicate at least 1 week (7 days) on this series. I need it for me! I think you may need it as well. It will be exciting to see strength come as we pray and meditate at the same time!

Today's prayer comes from portions of Psalm 25. You will appreciate this one in your busy schedule dear ladies!


(from Psalm 25 NKJV, written by David)

To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You.

Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.

Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day.

We pray this in the name of Jesus.



Begin by telling God that you trust in him. It does not matter if you feel it or not. Just say it. I know your heart trusts in him, because you received salvation. Your heart trusted that Jesus is your Savior. Despite any circumstances around you, tell your Father God you trust in him and lift your soul to him. This is praise to God!

Next ask God to show you the path he has for you. Now that is a beautiful request and is met with joy. God adores a prayer asking for his paths to be made known. Enjoy asking for something of God that he desires for you to ask and receive. This is submitting a need to God!

Appeal to your Creator to teach you his truth! He will gladly do this. Then remind him that you know he is your sole salvation, and you will patiently wait for him knowing this. This is praise and thanksgiving to God!

How EASY was that? No great effort to find the right words to pray today! It is done, thanks to the Word of God!


This meditation will change your day in a fantastic way!

Delight in asking your Father God for something he takes joy in hearing! Earnestly seeking God's ways and his path for your life has no self-serving agenda. This request is extremely pleasing to God's ears and to heaven!

Take time to sense fulfillment from praying according to God's Word, and that you are being obedient to him. I think too often we look at our disobedience and sin, and rarely considered our obedience.

It is good to recognize when your actions agree with the Word of God - as long as you keep God's mercy and grace foremost in the process. Thank God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit for helping you submit to the will of God.


Delight in,

feel happy,

be glad,

be grateful,

and Thank God

that your prayer (from the Word of God) is well received by your Father God, Jesus your Savior, the Holy Spirit your Helper, and the heavenly host!



If you want to meditate on a smaller portion of this verse, I suggest:

Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.

Meditate and consider that your God wants to show you his path for you and teach you. He wants this for you. And now you ask for it along with praise and thanksgiving! Well done ladies.

-- This is a daily series. I will post a new one in the early morning for you. --

Also I will create I Don't Know What to Pray Today podcasts for you to listen to in the car, home, office or anywhere. Look for podcast on Blog homepage. We will pray the prayer together. You can also play it often to pray this wonderful prayer throughout the day. That is easy!

Today dear ones you do know what to pray!
