Contentment in His will

Bible references
– Philippians 4:11
I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

– 1 Timothy 6:6

– Hebrews 13:5
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

– 2 Corinthians 12:10
For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.


You are the creator of all things and the author of my life. You know the desires of my heart, and You understand the struggles I face in finding contentment in Your will. Help me to trust in Your perfect plan for my life, and give me the strength to surrender my own desires to Your greater purpose. Fill me with Your peace and assurance that Your will is always best for me.

Father, forgive me for the times when I have resisted Your will and sought my own way. Help me to have a heart that is willing to accept Your guidance and to find contentment in the path You have chosen for me. Grant me the grace to let go of my own plans and ambitions and to fully embrace Your will for my life. May I find joy and satisfaction in knowing that Your plans for me are always for my good.

I pray for the wisdom to discern Your will and the courage to follow it wholeheartedly. Help me to be content with where You have placed me and to trust that You are working all things for my good. As I seek contentment in Your will, may Your peace and presence be with me, guiding me every step of the way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
