Ask for Wisdom.


James 1-2, Jonah 1-4

James 1:5-6 – If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting; for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.

God, I need wisdom and you’re the only one who can give it.  I’m looking at my life.  I’m looking at this next year.  I’m looking at the circumstances in my life. I’m looking at the people in my life.  You have given me so much good. Please, I pray, give me wisdom to know not just what to do in my life but wisdom to know how to do it.  You have given me much knowledge and information from your Word and from the experiences of my life.  Give me now wisdom to put that information into practice.  Purify and forgive every thought in me that is of sin and not of you.  Give me good counselors in my life who can know me and who can pour wisdom from you into my life.  God, the only way in which I will have these gifts is if you give them. Take away any doubt that lingers in my heart about your giving.  Take away all my hears and all my doubts as I put my trust in you.  Let my heart, soul and mind be stabilized and settled by you and your Word.  Amen.
