Prayer For Wisdom
Heavenly Father, I come before you today to ask for wisdom. I know You know everything, so I submit my thoughts and understanding to You. I am Your disciple, help me to transform my understandings to Your perspective.
Your Word says that if we ask for wisdom You will give it freely and without limit (James 1:5). I understand that even in my wisest moment, it is nothing compared to Your most foolish thought (1 Corinthians 1:25, Proverbs 3:7). My perspective has only gone as far as I could see. Jesus, You have opened my eyes to see from Your perspective.
Father, I respect You above all else and desire for You to teach me Your ways, which is wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). I know that Your wisdom is always pure, peace-loving, considerate, full of mercy, and impartial. I ask Holy Spirit to teach my mind to always think in those ways because I know that is how wise people think (James 3:17).
I also ask that You would bring wise people into my life and help me listen to them and accept their correction as I absorb their wisdom (Proverbs 19:20).
In the end Lord, I know that wisdom is just thinking as You think and I want to be just like You.
This is the desire of my heart.
In the might name of Jesus, I thank You Lord that You have already given me wisdom. I have it now.
