Often life throws up new challenges such as becoming a parent, facing a test or starting a new job. In such times we shall want to seek God for his wisdom and discernment, to clear away the confusion and bring his clarity and guidance. The good news is that God promises in scripture that he will give wisdom to those who ask him “because God gives generously and graciously to all”.
(James 1:5, GNT)
Prayer for wisdom and knowledge
Lord of heaven and earth,
I pray that as I search for knowledge in study that I would discover divine treasure.
May I be able to sift through all I read to find the gems of your kingdom.
Lord, I long not for the wisdom that leads to power or fortune but the wisdom that leads to faith and love.
Guide my pathway as I thirst for your truths.
May I drink from your word and pour out this heavenly water on others,
Your water of life, faith, hope, truth and love,
Into the hearts and lives of all I meet.
