Today's Prayer

This was the prayer in my devotions this morning.

Lord, make me a woman of wisdom and discernment.
I seek wisdom, Lord, NOT AS THE WORLD GIVES, BUT AS YOU GIVE.
Lead me in your ways and teach me from your Word so that,
in time, my wisdom might glorify Your kingdom and Your Son.
Amen


There is so much importance placed today on knowledge of the worldly kind. Can you imagine the changes in our world if everyone put that much effort into gaining knowledge of the Lord!
I don't think there's anything else we could or should desire more than that the words we say glorify God.
This prayer just really spoke with me this morning- Maybe it will speak to you as well.

Oh my! I pray every day before I put my feet on the floor, for the Lord to control me and my tongue and what I blog. I feel like before getting out of bed, I must pull down power from on high like one would do in an airplane when pulling down the hose to the oxygen when they are in trouble. Thank you for this post. I need His wisdom too!
