Almighty and wise counselor, I come to You in Jesus’ Name. As a believer in Jesus Christ, I thank You for living within me through the Holy Spirit and for the wise counsel you offer through Jesus. In Colossians 2:3, Jesus is described as the One “in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Forgive me for the times when my mind gets so caught up in the need to make decisions that I go to friends and family members for council instead of coming to You, the most important advisor. Direct me to come to You first and base my decisions on Your wisdom rather than on worldly insights.
Give me discernment to know that sometimes You use other people to show me what and how You want something accomplished in my life. “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety” Proverbs 11:14.
I recognize my need to depend on You. I ask You to continue to shape and mold me into the person You created me to be. Direct me to always do like the children of Israel did when they were in difficult situations: “then the children of Israel arose and went up to the house of God to inquire of God…” Judges 20:18.
Thank you for Your ever present hand in every situation in my life, and for allowing me to bring this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
