Prayers for Wisdom

Wisdom seems to be one of our most basic needs.  Maybe holding second place on the scale of things I pray for my sons, right underneath loving the Lord with all their heart, mind, soul and strength.  The combination of those two are my greatest desire for my sons. This week, let's pray that our sons would fear the Lord, the beginning of wisdom, and that they would desire the wisdom of the Lord in all things.

(Studying hard :)

Day One: May our sons leave their simple ways, and live, and walk in the way of insight. (Proverbs 9:6)

Day Two: May our sons not follow after the wisdom of this world, for it is foolishness to God. (1 Cor 3:19)

Day Three: May our sons ask God for wisdom, Who gives generously without reproach... (James 1:5)

Day Four: May our sons have wisdom that is pure, peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy, impartial & sincere. (James 3:17)

Day Five: May our sons not be wise in their own eyes, but fear the LORD, & turn away from evil (Prov 3:7)

Day Six: May our sons learn to be quiet. For even a fool is considered wise his lips are closed (Prov 17:28)

Day Seven: May our sons keep God's rules & do them, for that will be their wisdom & understanding (Deut 4:5-6)


May our sons fear the Lord & gain wisdom; turn away from evil & gain understanding (Job 28:28)

May our sons hear the voice of wisdom as she cries aloud in the street (& ignore other voices) (Prov 1:20)

May our sons' ears to be attentive to wisdom & their hearts inclined to understanding (Prov 2:2)

May our sons keep sound wisdom & discretion, for they will be life for their soul... (Prov 3:21-22)
