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!

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

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.

Have you asked God for wisdom or knowledge in prayer? King Solomon was noted as being one of the wisest men that ever lived.  The true wisdom that came from Solomon was his prayer to God asking for an understanding mind. Solomon asked for knowledge and God gave it to him! If you are seeking discernment or understanding in an area of your life, I pray that you would surrender it to God and ask Him to give you the knowledge and wisdom that only He can supply. These Bible verses are about knowledge, wisdom and discernment. They are just a small sample of the number of Bible verses and readings you can find on this subject. I pray this sparks your interest to look up these passages and read the context they were taken from.

Biblical Example of Praying for Wisdom- Solomon

1 Kings 3:5-12  At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.” And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. And now, O LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in.  And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?” It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. And God said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you.

Discernment

Daniel 2:21  He changes times and seasons;  he removes kings and sets up kings;he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;

Psalm 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

Proverbs 16:22 Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.

Proverbs 1:5 Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance,

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Christian Quotes About Knowledge

The ultimate ground of faith and knowledge is confidence in God.  ~ Charles Hodge

The Bible was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.  ~ D.L. Moody

Knowledge is power.  ~ Francis Bacon

Knowledge is but folly unless it is guided by grace.  ~ George Herbert

Here is a prayer for wisdom based on James 1:5 (New International Version) 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.

Heavenly Father, I (we) thank you that Your Word gives knowledge, instruction, wisdom, and understanding to all who pays attention to its truths. You promised to impart wisdom to me (us) if I will listen to Your Words and attain unto Your wise counsels. I (we), therefore, enter Your presence with trust, knowing that You will give me (us) wisdom according to II Chronicles 1:10. Lord God, fill me (us) with the spirit of wisdom so that I (we) will be able to discern Your will. With You, Lord, there is both strength and wisdom according to Job 12:13, In Jesus Name. Amen

Job 12:13 – “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his.”
2 Chronicles 1:10 – “Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?”

King Solomon
