Prayer For Guidance While In A Different Country

Dear Lord, I ask You to guide me and give me wisdom as I move away from my family and my home country to work in a foreign place. I ask You to be with me in all that I do as I face the challenge of learning to live and work in a different culture with different standards and beliefs. Enable me to adjust to the differences but not be caught up in the things if this world.

Give me wisdom and discernment to as I meet new people, and help me to be both cautious in my dealings as well as kind in my actions. May I walk in the path that You have called me to go and not stray from Your guidance.

Provide I pray all my needs and necessities and provide me with health and strength as I face the challenges that face me - and be the best that I can be in the place that You have called me to go.

Be with all my loved ones that I am leaving behind and keep them safe in the arms of Jesus, day by day and bring us back together in Your way and Your own good time. I ask this in the name of my Saviour, Jesus Christ.

“Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.”
(1 Corinthians 12:2)
