Shape me, mold me

Jehovah Nissi, night departs and day arrives. As I go out into the world fulfilling Your will for my life, I ask that You keep me out of harm’s way. Lead the way.

Oh Heavenly Father, guide me accordingly. Shape me and mold me into a better person. As I draw near to You, may I understand Your teachings and apply them to my life.

Proverbs 2:6-7 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Speak into my life

Grant me the understanding and knowledge of You and Your word, as I open my Bible to read the scriptures or even as I sit and listen to pastor, preacher or apostle reveal what Your Holy Book is speaking into my life.

Help me to understand Jesus Christ, and the way in which He lived His life, so that I can follow in His precious footsteps.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

Bless me with divine knowledge and wisdom

I long to be in Your Holy presence, Oh Lord. Sit right beside me as I learn. Bring understanding to my mind as Your teachings are revealed to me.

Bless me with divine knowledge so that I could one day teach others. Help me to learn how to be more understanding, kind, patient and compassionate towards my brother just as You were when You walked the earth and came to save us.

In Jesus’ mighty name, I declare and decree that a revelation of wisdom and knowledge of the word would be dawned upon me, Amen.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

Prayer for Wisdom, Knowledge & Understandng

To  live  in  wisdom,  knowledge  and  understanding  (Colossians 1:9, Ephesians 1:17-18), release your faith by saying:

“Father  in  Jesus  Name,  concerning  wisdom,  knowledge  and understanding,  I  believe  (Mark11: 24)  that You have  given to me:

A wise and understanding  heart.  (1 Kings 3:12) An  understanding  heart  to  discern  between  good  and  evil. (1  Kings  3:9) Wisdom from  above  which  is  pure,  peaceable,  gentle,  easy  to  be entreated,  full  of  mercy,  good  fruits,  without  partiality  and without  hypocrisy.  (James 3:17) A mouth and wisdom, which all  my  adversaries  shall  not be able to gainsay  nor resist.  (Luke  21:15) The  tongue  of  the  learned,  that  I  would  know  how  to  speak  a word in season to him  that is  weary.  (Isaiah  50:4) The  spirit  of  wisdom,  revelation  knowledge  and  understanding, that  I  may  know  the  hope  to  which  I  am  called,  the  riches  of  the glory  of  Jesus’  inheritance  in  the  saints  and  the  exceeding greatness of  Jesus’  power  towards us who believe.  (Ephesians  1:17-19) Knowledge  and  skill  in  all  learning,  and  wisdom  and understanding  in visions  and dreams. (Daniel  1:17)

Father  in  Jesus  name,  concerning  wisdom,  knowledge  and understanding,  I  believe  (Mark  9:23,  Mark  11:24)  that  through  Your  power that works in me  (Ephesians  3:20,  Philippians  2:13), I  would:

Be as  wise  as a serpent but harmless as a  dove.  (Matthew  10:16)

Pursue  knowledge  and  understanding  as  hid  treasures. (Proverbs  2:3-5) Not  allow  myself  to  be  destroyed  by  the  lack  of  knowledge. (Hosea  4:6) Commit  to  hear  the  Word,  do  it,  fear  the  Lord  and  depart  from evil;  in  pursuit  to  be  a  wise  and  understanding  person. (Matthew  7:24,  Job  28:28) Walk  in  wisdom  toward  them  that  are  without,  redeeming  the time.  (Colossians  4:5) Apply my heart unto wisdom.  (Psalms 90:12) Show  out  of  a  good  conversation  my  works  with  meekness  of wisdom.  (James 3:13) Incline  my  ear  to  wisdom  and  apply  my  heart  to  understanding. (Proverbs  2:2) Be prudent  in  matters  and  behave  myself  wisely  in  all  my  ways. (1  Samuel  16:18,  1  Samuel  18:14) Have  an  aptitude  for  every  kind  of  learning,  be  well  informed, quick  to  understand  and  qualified  to  serve  You  and  others.   (Daniel  1:4  ex  NIV)

Father  in Jesus Name,  I  also believe  (Mark  11:24)  that:

Wisdom  is  the  principal  thing; wisdom  makes  a  man  happy  and the  merchandise  of  it  is  better  than  the  merchandise  of  silver  and fine  gold;  wisdom  is  better  than  precious  stones;  wisdom strengthens  the  wise.  (Proverbs  4:7,  Proverbs  3:13-14,  Proverbs  8:11, Ecclesiastes  7:19)

The  fear  of  the  Lord  is  the  beginning  of  wisdom,  a  good understanding  have  all  they  that  do  Your  commandments. (Psalms  111:10) Wisdom  will  preserve  me,  protect  me,  promote  me,  bring  me  to honour, give  me favour and glory.  (Proverbs  4:6-9) The tongue  of the  wise  is  health.  (Proverbs  12:18) I would understand the times.  (Esther 1:13) Wisdom  and  knowledge  shall  be  the  stability  of  my  time. (Isaiah  33:6) In all  matters  of  wisdom  and  understanding,  I  shall  be  ten  times better than the heathens.  (Daniel  1:20) The knowledge of the Holy is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10)”

Amen

Through the month of January, EGM is sharing 31 ways to pray for children around the world. On day 15, we prayed that God provide wisdom, knowledge and understanding to children.

One of the great examples of biblical wisdom is found in Solomon, one of the kings of Israel.

When God appears to Solomon in a dream and offers anything he desires, Solomon asks for wisdom and knowledge (2 Chronicles 1:7-10). Because Solomon asks for wisdom above wealth, possessions, death of his enemies, or long life, God is pleased and grants his request.

We look to Solomon as an example of a wise person. But what exactly does the Bible mean by wisdom, knowledge and understanding?

Wisdom according to the Bible

There are many uses in the Bible of wisdom, but one that seems to be used most often is a type of intellectual wisdom. According to a dictionary of Old Testament words, “Wisdom is coupled with such qualities as understanding (Proverbs 10:23) and knowledge (Proverbs 2:10). Wisdom has its source in God and in the fear of the Lord.” What separates wisdom from understanding and knowledge, is application.

For Solomon, he was considered wise because he acted upon the knowledge he was granted (1 Kings 3). Therefore, wisdom seems to be knowing the truth of God and applying it to real life.

Children can ask for God’s wisdom

Like Solomon, children can ask God for biblical wisdom. But without a relationship with God and His Word, children won’t understand true knowledge in Christ and how they can apply it to their own lives.

Fortunately, with access to the Bible, children can be given the chance to respond to God’s Word in their real lives. EGM seeks out opportunities to provide churches and children’s ministry workers with culturally relevant Bible teaching resources, so God’s Word can be shared with children effectively.

What children choose to do with knowledge is not up to us. But our prayer is that being led through relational, experiential teaching and response to His Word will inspire them to serve God and be part of His family.

I thank God for the opportunity to serve His people throughout the world. Praise the Lord that more children are being transformed in Christ through His Church.

Please pray with us: “Wise God, provide children with education so they can grow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding.”
