Prayer for Wisdom

Here is a prayer for wisdom based on James 1:5 (New International Version) If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Heavenly Father, I (we) thank you that Your Word gives knowledge, instruction, wisdom, and understanding to all who pays attention to its truths. You promised to impart wisdom to me (us) if I will listen to Your Words and attain unto Your wise counsels. I (we), therefore, enter Your presence with trust, knowing that You will give me (us) wisdom according to II Chronicles 1:10. Lord God, fill me (us) with the spirit of wisdom so that I (we) will be able to discern Your will. With You, Lord, there is both strength and wisdom according to Job 12:13, In Jesus Name. Amen

Job 12:13 – “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his.”
2 Chronicles 1:10 – “Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”

King Solomon

  1. I want God to help me to enter into The year 2020 with good health, favour, happy marriage, bless my business, my husband work and successful living.

  2. In my sleep, I have dreams and visions with God and Jesus Christ. I had a dream during Yom Kippur, I saw king David, Jesus Christ crucified, a profet, and Satan shooting Jesus Christ to get the chest area. People in church I guess did not believed me, but God knows that I am telling the truth. What God wants me to do. I have no idea. Help me

    1. Vilma, dreams are symbolic most of the time. Very few people have literal dreams. So you seeing satan shooting Jesus is not literal this is symbolic. We have a section on the site for dream interpretation and you can put the dreams there and we will help you to interpret them. You should continue to pray and ask God for Him to give you clear direction on your purpose.
