Prayer for Today

Part of getting settled in Texas has brought me to a point of questioning my purpose and direction for my life in the near and long-term future. I found this passage this morning, and have rephrased it to be my prayer for myself. First the passage, then my prayer:

"We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what he wants to do in your lives, and we ask him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better." Colossians 1:9-10 (NLT)

Father in Heaven, please give me a complete understanding of what you want to do in my life. Make me wise with spiritual wisdom. Let the way I live honor you and please you, and let me do good and kind things for others. Through it all, teach me to know you better and better. Amen.
