Prayers For My 20s 

This year, I turned 20 years old. I have a lot of optimism for the future. My life for the next year concerning my relationships, education, career, travel and joy. 

I pray for guidance. Lord, help me know where to plant my footing when it comes to future endeavors. Help me to navigate my life through my family, eduction and my career. Guide me along the right path so that I can stay true to myself and my faith as I get older. 

I pray for wisdom. Give me the knowledge to help educate myself and others in my future. Give me opportunities to learn from others. Give me the discernment to make the right decisions. Give me the understanding to listen to others. 

I pray for inner peace. Give me the patience and the serenity to handle whatever may come my way. Help me to gain the tranquility to be able to accept what I cannot change. As for what I can, give me the confidence to break bad habits. 

As I go through my twenties, I pray for love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
