    'You saw me before I was born.' Psalm 139:16 NLT

    The psalmist wrote: 'You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God' (Psalm 139:16-17 NLT).

    If you want to know God's will for your life, pray this prayer: 'Lord, you knew me completely before I was born, and you shaped me and destined me for a purpose. Give me a clear vision of all you want to do in and through my life. I desperately need to understand what the "hope of my calling" (Ephesians 4:4 NAS) is, and "the exceeding greatness of his power" (Ephesians 1:19 NKJV) to enable me to fulfil your purpose (see 2 Corinthians 9:14). Show me the gifts you have put in me, and how I can develop and use them for your glory (see Romans 12:6). Help me to think big and pray with boldness (see Ephesians 3:20). I want to be open and available for whatever you have for me, and not miss your blessings by being unprepared to receive them. Help me not to hold on to things or relationships that are not of you. I want to do your will with my whole heart (see Psalm 40:8). Only you know what and who is right for me. Help me to hear your voice, and give me the grace and courage to follow your leading when I am afraid (see John 10:4). May the desires of your heart become the desires of my heart. Enlarge my capacity to believe that you can take what I have and multiply it beyond what I can imagine. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.'
