PRAYER: WISDOM FROM ABOVE
A Prayer For Godly Wisdom
El Shaddai, God Almighty, we pour out our hearts before You like running water, seeking Your wisdom. We lift our hands in praise to worship You, Omnipotent Father, for You are high and lifted up and all the world will praise Your great name. Lord, we request that You help us lead our lives through Your divine wisdom from above, and not the worldly wisdom provided by the devil.
James 3:16-17 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
1 Corinthians 3:18-19 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”
El Elyon, The Most High God, we know that gaining wisdom from You is a most valued and righteous treasure. We know that living in fear of You is the beginning of wisdom and You will grace us with it. For You laid up sound wisdom for the righteous. Lord, we know that wisdom from above is pure, peaceable, gentle, full of mercy, full of good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
James 1:5 – 6 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. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
James 3:13-15 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
Yahweh Jireh, The Lord will provide, we request that Your holy wisdom be entrusted upon our lives and we execute it daily. Guide us and help us make wise decisions always. Form our decisions such that we will always be able to glorify You in some way. Mold us, shape us, be with us always. Yeshua, we declare that You will fight all our battles and give us peace within to win the victory. In Jesus precious name, Amen!
Proverbs 2:6-7 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly.
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.
