I can only move my feet one at a time.
And I can only move my feet in the direction my eyes lead me.
Be the guide of my vision.
Turn my face to the path you have prepared for me.
Keep calling my attention,
tapping on my shoulder,
whenever I start staring towards my own
illusions and delusions.
In the name of Christ, the Light of the World, who illuminates our souls.
There’s a story behind this prayer. It came on a yellow piece of paper. It was folded into four parts.
On the outside were hand written words in pencil: A prayer for Jackie – I suggest you say this prayer, or at least, touch this piece of paper anytime you are going to talk about “the issue” in the next days.
At the time I was in my first relationship after having been divorced. My life had completely changed. The divorce had been very painful and I went through years of healing. “The issue” was the struggle I was having in this new relationship.
This note came from my choir director. We had become very close and he had been a stable, spiritual influence in my life. I talk about angels coming to help us when we need it and Marcos was certainly one of those for me.
The prayer meant so much to me that I wanted to share it with you. If you are seeking guidance, keep this prayer handy to help you stay on the spiritual path. “The issue” can be anything that you are struggling with as you seek a life guided by God.
If anxiety or fear crowd out thoughts of peace, learning to be still and to let go can help you experience God’s peace, presence and guidance. This Letting Go Prayer and Meditation Affirmation from my Let it Go CD can help you. Get the Letting Go free download.

Thank you for sharing. I am glad this prayer came right on time. I understand how hard it is to have to leave a marriage. Sending prayers of strength and healing.
In Christ’s love,

Thank you so much this guided prayer is right on time. Our church is on a fast right now Vision and Guidance is one on the prayers list and I most definitely need this at the very moment. My marriage is on the edge of being over and I am at a place in my marriage when enough is enough. I stayed in a marriage that was not at all healthy but it appeared to be to others now it’s affecting my health. I want out. This prayer for Vision and Guidance is what I needed . Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
