Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Word, which reminds us of the importance of asking You for godly wisdom when we feel that we are lacking in understanding or discernment, for You have promised to give generously to all who ask in faith.
Lord, there are many areas of my life in which I desire to apply godly wisdom, and I pray that by Your grace, You would supply me with a sound mind so that I may be able to give an answer to whosoever asks me about the faith that I have in the Lord Jesus Christ. And Father, by Your grace, I pray that this will help to prevent me from being tossed about by the many winds of doctrine and false gospels that are being peddled today, by blind teachers of the blind.
Help me to truly ask in faith, for I know and believe that Your Word is true and I trust You to keep Your Word. I confess Father, at times I doubt that You include me in this promise as well, so help me to overcome any doubts that may surface in my heart and may my faith in You become strong and my wisdom from You be used to Your praise and glory. In Jesus’ name I pray,
Dear Lord, give me I pray, a true and biblical understanding of how to live godly in Christ Jesus. I realise more and more how hateful sin is to You Father God, and I realise that I must have been hurting You by my many petty indulgences, which I now realise is sin in Your eyes.
Lord, I want to develop a godly perspective and to live a righteous life that is pleasing to You, and I realise that I must forget the things that are in the past and press on to the upward call I have in Christ Jesus.
Lord, I know that reverence for You is the first step to wisdom, and I pray that You would develop in me a godly fear and a humble respect for all those things that are so objectionable to the world mindset, but which is pleasing in Your sight.
Give me godly wisdom I pray, to follow after that which is good and give me wise discernment to know those things that are displeasing to You, and to flee far from anything that could tempt me to sin against You.
Open Your Word I pray to my understanding, and draw me ever closer to Yourself, so that like Job I can say, “I have heard of You with my ears but now You have opened my eyes to a deeper spiritual understanding of Who You truly are.” I ask this in Jesus’ name,
Father, I pray that You would grant me the Spirit of wisdom and discernment so that I may know You better and love You more.
Give me an understanding heart so that I may be open to hear Your voice and hear You say, “this is the path, walk in it.”
Use me I pray, to be Your hands and feet, Your voice and heart, that I may be a channel through which You pour out Your grace to others. May I decrease to nothing so that only Christ is seen in my life. I ask this in the power of the Spirit and in the name of Jesus, in Whose name I pray,
