If any of you lacks wisdom, ask!

21 Sep

“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.” James 1:5

Gracious Heavenly Father, Thank you for all you are and for all you have revealed to me this week through three verses of Scripture about the Prophetess, Anna. Your Word contains so much wisdom that in my haste I have overlooked. Lord, please forgive me for my haste, it’s my hearts desire to search your Word for all that you want me to know. Help me Lord to take my eyes off the things of the world so I can hear you more clearly. I praise you Lord for the example of Anna. Help me Lord in my desire to encourage women with their walk with you, to show them how amazing your grace and mercy are and that you do not require perfection for redemption. The blood of your Son paid the price of redemption for me and for them too. You love me and them no matter what! Guide my steps and words so that they see you and not me, they see you in the words I speak and not me. Let there be less of me and more of you. Hear my heart Lord as I bring their needs to you.

Show me Lord where my walk is lacking and guide me through those areas so that I may of greatest service to you.

Thank you Lord that you can use an imperfect person like me to do the work you planned out for me long before I was even conceived. Thank you Lord that even though I veered off the path you chose for me you welcomed me back not only with open arms but tears of joy. Thank you Lord for all the difficult times I’ve come through with you so that I can reach the hurting and lost with a knowing, caring, compassionate heart. Thank you for your grace, mercy and love.

In Jesus name I pray,
Amen

    What a beautiful prayer! I love your point about looking over things in haste… I am so guilty of that, as well! Also in reading a scripture that I am familiar with and not thinking I need to read it… even with me knowing He will give fresh vision! Thank you for sharing and praying blessings for you the rest of this study!
