A Liturgy for Big Decisions

We come before you, Lord, standing at the edge of a big decision.

It feels daunting, not knowing where we will land.

There are so many ways the road could part; we can feel the paralysis of making a wrong choice.

We pause to ask for clarity and direction.

We lay down our hurry, and our desire to just know the outcomes.

It can be hard to trust your timing, or to trust ourselves.

Help us slow down so we can hear the Voice of Love.

Remind us that the goal isn’t always the decision itself, but instead is an opportunity to know You more deeply.  

May we grow in intimacy with You through the process of decision making.

Jesus, remind us of Your words from the gospels: if God provides for the flowers and the birds, we can trust that we will be provided for as well.

Comfort us in times when we have no control over a decision, or the answer is no. Bring us peace that passes understanding when we simply do not understand.

Holy Spirit, remind us that sanctification often comes through these unclear or challenging seasons. While it may be stretching or frustrating, grant us the vision to see the metamorphosis happening in our lives.

Father, when we are anxious to move things forward, remind us that You are present to us in this very moment. May we know that Your heart is for us, and Your plan is good. 

Your word tells us that You will light our path and guide our feet. May we be “joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer.” In the midst of transition, keep our eyes focused on You and let us not be distracted by anxieties and unknowns. 

Lead us into deeper intimacy and trust, no matter where the road may go. Help us recognize the significance of the journey, and the ways we can grow with You as we walk whatever path You have already paved. 

May we see Your glory and power in our lives as we walk with You step by step.

May we lay down our expectations and our own “perfect plans,” trusting that You have good in store for us.

May we believe that the best is yet to come.

I write to process, and sometimes send those thoughts out into the void. Passionate about Jesus and people and bringing those two together. Living in and loving Denver. Working with college students, who are the coolest. Seeking Jesus and JOY in everything.
