40 Days of Prayer to Change America
(Day 23: Wisdom)
"Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her and she will watch over you."
--- Proverbs 4:6 (NIV)
Biblically speaking, wisdom is looking at things from God's perspective and making the right choices based on that perspective. How critical it is for a nation that wants to experience God's protection to love and embrace wisdom. As the United States increasingly accepts a secular mindset and rejects Divine revelation as a basis for our laws, we move further away from the protection offered by wisdom.
- Thank God for the gift of wisdom, and for the ability to see things from His perspective as we turn to His Word.
- Repent on behalf of our nation, because we have turned from making Scripture the basis of law, leaving behind wisdom and looking to ourselves for truth.
Father, we ask You for wisdom this day. We embrace the wisdom from above that allows us to see matters from Your perspective. In Jesus' Name. Amen
