Prayer For Wisdom And Understanding God’s Word

Prayer for Wisdom and Understanding God’s Word

Where does your wisdom and comfort come from? Who or what do you turn to in your time of need or when you have an important decision to make?

Make it a habit to always seek the Lord, His word and His counsel whenever these tough situations arise. Look to prayer and the Word of God to guide your footsteps.

When we open our ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, we allow our hearts to be encouraged, thereby allowing the Holy Spirit to operate in us. God will do what he says He will do. We can anchor our faith on His Word.

It’s in the difficult times that we often turn to our favorite Bible verses or books. What are your favorite Bible verses or book of the Bible? Let us pray.

Proverbs 2:6-7 – For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly.

James 1:5 – If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Prayer for Wisdom and Understanding God’s Word

Jehovah Nissi, night departs and day arrives. As I go out into the world fulfilling Your will for my life, I ask that You keep me out of harm’s way. Lead the way.

Oh Heavenly Father, guide me accordingly. Shape me and mold me into a better person. As I draw near to You, may I understand Your teachings and apply them to my life.

Psalm 111:10 – The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

Speak into my life

Grant me the understanding and knowledge of You and Your word. As I open my Bible to read the scriptures, give me wisdom and discernment.

And even as I sit and listen to the pastor, preacher or apostle reveal what Your Holy Book is speaking into my life, help me to see and understand.

Help me to understand Jesus Christ, and the way in which He lived His life, so that I can follow in His precious footsteps.

Ecclesiastes 7:12 – For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Bless me with divine knowledge and wisdom

I long to be in Your Holy presence, Oh Lord. Sit right beside me as I learn. Bring understanding to my mind as Your teachings are revealed to me.

Bless me with divine knowledge so that I could one day teach others. Help me to learn how to be more understanding, kind, patient and compassionate towards my brother just as You were when You walked the earth and came to save us.

In Jesus’ mighty name, I declare and decree that a revelation of wisdom and knowledge of the word would be dawned upon me, Amen.

Proverbs 1:7 – The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Matthew 7:7-8 – “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.
