Lord,

I’ve got to learn to make decisions. I

Mean, how to make up my mind quickly and

Decisively.

So often I am afraid to make a move since

My choice might be a mistake in the wrong

Direction. That would worry me afterward.

Thus I end up doing nothing, while my mind

Remains confused.

Give me wisdom to adopt a workable

solution. Nudge me toward these decision

Making “steps” which lead to satisfying results.

Study the situation carefully,

Gather counsel from books and friends

on the Subject

Weigh the evidence.

Pray about it.

Then decide in a definite manner.

Thank you, Lord, for decisions I must make.

I want to fully exercise that gift.

Teach me to extend the right of choice to my

own children.

It is risky – but rewarding…
