Open My Eyes

A rural road that divides in two directions

And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.—2 Kings 6:17 (NIV)

When you need to get the big picture or the truth about a given situation ask God to open your eyes to what is happening—and to guide you to the right decision or in the right direction. Trust that He can transform your confusion into clarity, your fear into opportunity.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, when I don’t know what to do, open my eyes so that I may see.
