Prayers For Wisdom


Dear Heavenly Father,

We come before You in unity, acknowledging Your greatness and power through the Name of Jesus Christ. We know that where two or more are gathered in Your Name, You are in the midst of us, and anything we agree upon will be done.

We lift up the person we are praying for, who is seeking wisdom in the face of their current situation. We thank You, Father, that there is no distance in the spirit, and we ask that You help them recognize that You are the source of all they need.

We acknowledge that You know every detail of their situation, and we pray that the Holy Spirit would remind them to call upon You for answers. We decree and declare that they will constantly look to You for the wisdom they need in life.

We praise You for being a God of love and goodness, who is always ready and willing to help. We thank You for having the answer to every problem they will ever face.

Father, we ask that You start speaking to the person we are praying for about their situation. We decree and declare that You are always willing to reveal what they need to know, and we pray that they would come to You for guidance.

We believe and receive everything we have prayed for, and we give You all the glory in advance for answering this prayer. We pray all of this in the wonderful and precious Name of Jesus Christ, amen.
