Wisdom is the one thing we all strive to have. It is often referred to as a blessing that comes with age. Each day we should strive to be wise. When we look at the actions of young people such as Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina we are left wondering where is the wisdom to know better.
Most people know the basic things that they should pray for: Peace on Earth, the love, health, and wealth of their family and friends, their pastor, and so on. But people often forget wisdom.
When you pray for wisdom you should pray
Oh Mighty Power I pray for what is logical, what is true,
What is right and what is lasting.
It mirrors Your pure intellect!
I entreat You to grant me such Wisdom,
That my labors may reflect Your insight.
There is a beautiful Psalm that you should use when wondering what to do.
Proverbs 3: 13 – 18,
Happy is the man that finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.
