Lord, I bring before you these important decisions that I need to make regarding my life. I know my choices will shape my future, so direct me in wisdom. Help me to clearly identify my goals – and may those be in line with your plans for me. Help me to carefully research and consider the options available to me. Help me weigh the pros and cons and the consequences of each decision. And, once I’ve given each option my careful consideration and prayer, let me confidently decide, without second-guessing myself. Amen.
