Prayer from Genesis 45:7-28

God required them to go to Egypt, a foreign land full of idols, where they would be safe—kept alive.

What do you want me to do Lord?  Show me your will. 

I may do things not knowing really why, and having doubts, but the Lord will guide me.  

I may move in a direction, which I believe is God’s will, but not know what I’m doing or where I’m going; but the Lord knows and He directs my steps; His plan is set and He will determine the outcome. 

“We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall” (Prov. 16:33). 

I followed wise advice though I had other plans; and things seemed to work out to do it. 

I am moving in that direction, though I encounter problems along the way and I fear more failure; but I move ahead—blindly.

I determine to push forward.  

I look for an open door, a ray of light, a whisper saying “come this way.” 

I plod ahead slowly, though at times gasping for air.

Little by little I am making progress, knowing that God leads me.

I have a promise and He has set my course.  I know in my heart if I trust Him and hang on to the hope He gives me that I will complete the work that he has put in me to do—though most of the time I’m not sure exactly how to do it. 

Show me what to do, Lord.
