Prayer

Wisdom

“How frail is humanity! How short life is, how full of trouble!” (Job 14:1; NLT).

“But true wisdom and power are found in God; counsel and understanding are his” (Job 12:13; NLT).

Teach us to understand the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12; NLT).

To acquire wisdom is to love oneself (Proverbs 19:8; NLT).

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you (James 1:5; NLT).


Lord,
I’m so tired
Of living with chronic illness.

Please heal me in body and mind –
But if that’s not your will,
Help me to accept my limitations,
And to live within them wisely.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
