Loving Lord, I ask that You would give me a wise and understanding heart — a heart that readily discerns Your will so that I make the best choices for my life and am enabled to give the best help to those in need …
Give me an obedient heart – a heart that is ready and willing to say “Thy will be done” and not to insist that my will is best. Lord I know that the heart is deceptive and I pray that I will be kept from wrongly discerning Your truth because of my pride or foolishness – keep me low at the cross I pray …..
Keep me, I pray, from ungodly council for I know how destructive the loose words of a false witness can be, and keep me from a presumptuous attitude that is so destructive to the soul ….
Open my heart I pray, to listen to Your still small voice and give me discernment to know when to speak and when to remain silent; direct and govern my steps I pray, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen …..
