The Book of Common Prayer provides us with this Prayer for Guidance
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favor, and further us with they continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
