Prayer for Divine Wisdom

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Friday, October 4, 2013 Under: Prayers

a man praying for divine wisdomGod is an embodiment of wisdom. Wisdom begins and ends with Him. God is wiser than any man. The Omnipotent is wiser than any diviner. God is far more knowledgeable than any professor; He’s wiser than any scientist. When God think He has acted foolishly, his decisions are wiser than those of wisest men (1Corrithians 1:25). God gives wisdom (Proverbs 2:6) to everyone, but divine wisdom He reserves to those who earnestly desire it and ask for it. Solomon asked for divine wisdom and he got a double portion of it with riches and honour (2Chronicles 1:10-12).
This prayer points will guide you on how to pray for divine wisdom. The scripture says that if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach (James 1:5 ESV). May your request be granted like that of Solomon in the name of Jesus Christ.

Scripture Reading

Read: Job 28:20-28, 2Chronicles 1:10-12

  • Heavenly Father, I thank you for keeping me alive to this day.

  • Lord Jesus, I give you praise and honour.
  • I thank you Almighty God because you are the author and giver of wisdom.
  • I thank you Jehovah for all the promises in your word; especially the promise of wisdom to those who ask for it. Thank you Lord.
