Praying through Proverbs, Chapter 1 – Choosing Wisdom

 

Dear Heavenly Father,

We confess that we struggle with selfishness at times. We know You see our hearts when we care more about our own desires than we care about listening to wise counsel. Please help us choose wisdom together. Help us to listen to each other and to value each other’s unique insight and perspective as we walk through life, hand-in-hand.

We understand that we need to use discernment when we seek wisdom from others, so that we may protect our marriage as we choose to be careful with our speech and to respect one another.

We don’t want to hate knowledge or turn away from godly rebukes so we ask you to give us hearts that love wisdom and yearn for Your Word.

In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. – Proverbs 1:5-7, KJV

__________________________________________________________

Let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance— for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. – Proverbs 1:5-7, NIV
