1. A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:
Father, today I ask that you would put mentors in my life. Women and men who are wiser than me and willing to invest in my faith and life. Show me someone in my life I can pray for, invest in, and point to your wisdom.
2. A PRAYER FOR MY CHURCH:
God, I ask that you give our church the wisdom to be excellent stewards of everything you have given us to care for. Would you help us be wise with money, time, and every resource you have provided to us.
3. A PRAYER FOR THE KINGDOM:
Father, would you make your wisdom clear to Church leaders world wide today. Let them rest in you, and may every decision they make today be rooted in the Holy Spirit.
Today’s Scripture: Proverbs 1:1-9
1 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
2 for gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
3 for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 for giving prudence to those who are simple,
knowledge and discretion to the young—
5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
8 Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
9 They are a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.
