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?”
