Prayer for Wisdom
What is wisdom? Is it something you gain through experience or does it come from God? Can you pray for wisdom?
When I was younger, my parents would often say things like, “You’ll never get anywhere without wisdom.” They meant that wise decisions are necessary for success. In other words, you need to make good choices to reach your goals.
The Bible says that wisdom comes from above (James 3:17). That means you don’t earn wisdom, you receive it directly from God. If you want to become wiser, ask Him for wisdom daily. He promises to give it to us.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.

forgive me for I have sinned before You.

Help me to understand how to apply Your Word.
Give me understanding about myself and others.
Teach me how to live out Your principles.
