Prayer Day 38

Prayer for Wisdom James 1:5-6

“O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.” - Psalm 86:5

Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. - Proverbs 3:7

For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6

For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy. Proverbs 2:10

I’ll admit that there are times when I do feel desperately confused and unsure of what I should do. I lay awake at night tossing and turning as I weigh all my choices against the possible consequences and outcomes of my decision. Yet, still, I can’t decide.

Praying for the spirit of discernment can prove to be a brave and bold request. When we humbly ask God to reveal His will to us for specific situations, even when others may not see what we perceive, God may ask us to perform courageous acts that could be lifesaving or forever life-changing. We can become the brave spiritual warriors that our world needs so desperately. Spiritual discernment and godly wisdom let God guide.


  • Pray that God would help you remember to seek His wise counsel and trust in where he wants  us to go. 
  • There are many voices in my head of those who think they know what's best for me. Please guide me to those who will provide your biblical perspective and not the world’s persuasion.
  • Like Solomon, my desire is for wisdom to make decisions that are pleasing to you Lord. Even when I don’t completely understand, help me to trust and believe in you.
