May 8 – Morning


The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.

(Proverbs 12:15)


Dear God,

You have given us the wisdom to seek counsel and guidance from others, and I ask for the humility to recognize when I need to do so. Help me to not be arrogant or prideful in my own knowledge, but to instead be open to the wisdom and advice of those around me. In times of decision-making, may I always turn to You and seek Your guidance through prayer and through the counsel of wise and trusted individuals.

I pray that You would grant me discernment and clarity of mind, so that I may make decisions that honor You and benefit those around me. Help me to be willing to learn and grow, and to not let my own pride and stubbornness hinder me from receiving the wisdom that You have placed in others. May I always seek Your will above my own desires, and may I walk in the wisdom that comes from You.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
