Prayer #25. His Wisdom
Father, You alone are completely wise. You have also promised to give wisdom where it is asked. (James1:5). Today I ask that you give my husband immeasurable wisdom. The very beginning of wisdom is fearing You and hating evil. (Ps.111:10) Give my husband a heart that can discern. You have given him Your precepts, help him understand Your word so he may have great understanding and continue growing in wisdom. You have instructed us to not just listen to Your word, but to do as it says. (James 1:22) Today, I pray You would impart wisdom to my husband so that he may know what is Your good and perfect will.
Father, I pray you will teach my husband to not be wise in his own eyes, doing what he wants, when he wants, how he wants, but always seeking You first, wanting to please You above man. Doing this will bring health and nourishment to his body. (Pr3:7-8)
Father, we know wisdom is found in those who take advice and accept instruction (Pr.13:10, 19:20) Make my husband one who accepts advice, or at least listens to advice from others. Do not let him be so set in his ways that, he will scoff like a mocker in the face of another who meant no ill will. Rather, let him thoughtfully and patiently consider their words. Let him not become angry and defensive, speaking harsh words that prove his heart is set in his ways. Gently impart wisdom to him, revealing truth. Then help him accept the advice or instruction that has been revealed to him.
Father, deepen my husbands desire to grow in Your word, for it has been said, the holy scriptures are able to make you wise. (2Tim.3:15)
To further grow his desire to be in Your word, place godly man and role models in his life, so he can be encouraged by their wisdom and the accountability of their presence. He who walks with wise grows wise. (pr.13:20) Give my husband godly men to walk with through his life.
Father, thank You that you have given my husband a sound mind and teachable heart. Today I ask again that You would impart great wisdom to him, so that he and his children may live. Help him be strong, and show himself a man, observing what You require. (1Kings2:2-4) And we know what You require is for us to act justly, love mercy and to walk humbly before You, our unchangeable, infallible Lord. (Micah6:8) In Jesus' name. Amen
"When pride comes,
then comes disgrace,
but with humility comes wisdom."
