Beginning a New Journey: Entrusting Our Steps to the Lord

Listen to this article

Bible Verse: Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”


Heavenly Father, as we embark on this new chapter, this new journey in our lives, we recognize our reliance on You. Just as Jesus always sought Your will, we too, desire to put You at the center of our every decision and step. We acknowledge that we do not know everything, and our understanding is limited. Therefore, we choose to trust You with all our heart, choosing faith over fear, and trust over trepidation. Guide our steps, O Lord, and let our journey be in alignment with Your perfect plan. Grant us the grace to embrace the unknown, knowing that You go before us and will make our paths straight. May we mirror the obedience of Christ, always seeking Your guidance and favor in our endeavors. In Jesus’ mighty name, we pray. Amen.


The Bible verse from Proverbs is a reminder of the need for unwavering trust in the Lord, especially when we are starting a new journey or chapter in our lives. Just as we have plans, aspirations, and visions, God has a divine plan for each of us. However, our human understanding is limited, and we often do not see the entire picture or the possible challenges ahead. This is why the verse urges us to not lean on our own understanding but to completely trust in the Lord.

Throughout the Gospels, we see the example of Jesus, who, though He was the Son of God, always sought the will of the Father in every decision and action. He serves as a model of submission and trust. By invoking Jesus’ teachings and actions in the prayer, we are reminded of the importance of putting God first in our lives, seeking His guidance, and trusting that He will direct us on the right path.

Starting a new journey can be daunting, filled with uncertainties and unknowns. However, as the verse from Proverbs reassures, if we trust in the Lord and seek His guidance in all we do, He will guide our steps, ensuring we are on the right path. This prayer seeks God’s intervention in our endeavors, entrusting Him with our journey, and asking for the grace to always remain obedient and aligned with His divine plan.
