Day 6- Wisdom
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
To ask for wisdom takes humility. Solomon knew that he did not have the wisdom that his Father David had to be King. When the Lord came to Solomon in a dream and asked him what he wished for the Lord to give him, Solomon humbly admitted that he did not know which direction to turn or how to run the kingdom. Then he requested that the Lord give him a wise mind for understanding and discernment. The Lord granted Solomon wisdom because he asked. And because Solomon asked for wisdom God blessed him in ways he could never imagine. One of the greatest attributes a man can have is to be biblically wise, but its not something that God gives freely. It must be asked for. Asking for wisdom is an act of humility. It is admitting to God that you don’t have the answers but you want His answers. Praying for God to grant your future husband with wisdom will impact so many other areas of his life as well.
Heavenly Father- Today I pray that you bless my future husband with wisdom like Solomon. Lord I know that he must ask you for wisdom, and that takes humility on his part to admit that your ways are above his own. Father help him to see that you are omniscient, and that you know the future, and that your will has been planned to give him the your best. Father I pray, that you would give him the insight to know that wisdom is the greatest gift he could ask you for. Father I pray that you would grant him a spirit of discernment that you would open his eyes to the Devil’s plots and schemes and help him to see the reality of sin. I pray Lord for you to allow him to see things through your eyes, and in your way.
Lord give him wisdom to see people in your light. Lord help him to discern where you are sending him so that you can give him a heart of compassion and help him to love others in the way that you love them. Let him be bold to speak in wisdom and truth to stand up for others. Train him to be slow to speak, quick to listen, and slow to become angry.
I pray Lord, that he would see the importance of coming to you with every decision, and that you would guide him as he prays for the future of our relationship and family. I pray that he would not see asking for wisdom as a one time request but that he would know he needs to seek you daily for wisdom. I pray that he would keep his mind centered on you and, that he would make decisions prayerfully each day, and through your the biblical guidance of the full council of your word. I pray that you would give him the wisdom to seek Godly council, and would place wise Godly people in his life for accountability, for encouragement, and for guidance.
In Jesus Name,
