Praying for Wisdom

Heb 5:14b

Just about every parent wants to be proud of their child, and many parents invest a lot of time and energy helping their children excel.

We want our children to have wisdom. We want them to know what is right and what is wrong. We want them to be able to discern both good and evil when they are out on their own. (see Heb 5:14)

Try as we may, we cannot do all the training on our own. We need God's help. That help can come through prayer by asking God that your child will learn to discern between good and evil, and be able to make good decisions.

Father, help us to daily lift up our children to you, asking your help in their lives that they may learn to apply wisdom in their decisions. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
