Prayer for Wisdom

Praying for Divine Wisdom

Beautiful Lord, Purify my heart. Grant me Your divine wisdom, as I make You the center of my life, King Jesus.

Guide me in all that I do. Save me from pride, arrogance, doubt and fear.  Lead me to victory, where the waters are calm, the earth is still, and where I overlook the trials from the mountaintop, with peace in my heart, knowing I have survived the storm.

Master, make the plans You have for my life clearer each day. Help me to envision what You have set before me.

As I go out to execute Your divine will, grant me provision as You send me on the mission. Give me strength, hope, and wisdom to complete it.

Light my path, oh Lord. Shun the darkness that surrounds me.
