Praying the Scriptures

Prayer for Wisdom

 “Now, O Lord my God, you have made me king instead of my father, David, but I am like a little child who doesn’t know his way around. And here I am in the midst of your own chosen people, a nation so great and numerous they cannot be counted! Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?” 1 King 3:7-9

Lord, I pray that our children will realize how much they need Your direction in their lives. Give them humility as they become  leaders in their community (whether in school or career). May they desire wisdom from You, realizing that Your wisdom will be what blesses them with health, wealth, and happiness.  I pray that they will understand the difference between right and wrong in a world where anything goes. May they be Your light in their world. Amen

mums James 3 17
